Coïncidence - Clef De Ciel (1979)
The second and final album from this French band.
The band was a sextet with a lineup of guitars, keyboards, percussion, bass, drums, saxophone and piano.
Their first album was not a good album. Therefore, I did not have much hope for this album.
The band continues with their own take on fusion.
There is a lot of Weather Report in their music. That inspiration is easy to detect throughout this album.
There is also a lot of strange keyboards generated sounds throughout this album. What is a bit different with this album is the use of so much acoustic guitars. This on some really melodic fusion which puts the emphasis on the good melody instead of finesse and interesting details.
This is a very obscure album but I cannot really understand why. Most fusion fans would find something to like here. The music is not too bad either.
I guess albums like this is forgotten and being left behind. Which is a pity because this album is a decent one and one to check out.
