    From ProgressiveRock :

    Hailing from Holland, Trace featured the talents of the Van Der Linden brothers. Rick, the classically trained keyboard player, cut his teeth with classical performance, before leading Ekseption (sic) for nearly five years. That band found considerable success by rocking up classical adaptations and jazz standards, though offered little more than novelty. However, this would become a popular Dutch variant of Prog. Drummer Pierre was in several Dutch rock bands, including Brainbox and Focus. In 1974, the brothers joined up with bassist Jaap Van Eik to form Trace, since the name Ace was already in use. Unsurprisingly, the album offers a combination of classical adaptations interspersed with original numbers. The original numbers, such as the jazzy "Once" and "Progression", are the highlights. Rick was of course a first-rate talent, in league with an Emerson or whomever, and the performance is technically perfect. But it really was nothing more than an exercise. Again unsurprisingly, the album went gold in their native Holland. Trace released a second album, but with English drummer Ian Mosley, fresh from Wolf. The first side contained a continuous suite written by Rick and overall the album felt more varied, even introducing a little guitar and vocal into the equation. "Opus 1065" was a standout with Darryl Way adding violin. Again like the debut, it saw release in the US on Sire. A final (and disappointing) album, White Ladies, appeared in 1976, after which Linden would go solo. Mosely would go on to Steve Hackett’s backing band.
