The Karen Cooper Complex is a six-piece band formed in 1970. Their music was a marriage between rock and free jazz. The group of outsider artists played loosely structured, improvisational rock that found itself in the realm of the avant garde . Karen got pregnant and the band never played live — in fact, from that point, they never played again at all. The member from the group Frank Daniel died of complications of Type I diabetes in 2004, this volume of songs has been digitized as a salute to his memory and in hopes that someone out there will listen to this music and say “Good work, Frank. Thanks.” We are left with this wonderful album, download it here.
