    The quality of the video was increased by me up to 1080p. The formation of that presentation is the most remembered and for me the best of Soft Machine:

    Soft Machine - Hidden Details 50th Anniversary Tour - Live in de Boerderij


    Soft Machine werd eind jaren ’60 opgericht en wordt gezien als pionier van het jazz fusion genre.
    De band presenteert hun nieuwe album Hidden Details in Cultuurpodium Boerderij.

    Soft Machine is één van de meest invloedrijke bands uit de Canterbury Scene. Gitarist John Etheridge,
    saxofonist Theo Travis (ex-Gong, Steven Wilson, David Gilmour), bassist Roy Babbington en drummer John Marshall
    zorgen ervoor dat het nalatenschap van Soft Machine blijft voortbestaan.
    Met klassiekers van de wereldberoemde albums “Third” (1970) en “Fourth” (1971), werk uit de beginjaren en natuurlijk nieuwe nummers van hun plaat “Hidden Details”

    Soft Machine

    John Etheridge – guitar
    Theo Travis - tenor sax, flute, keyboards
    Roy Babbington - bass
    John Marshall - drums

    Soft Machine is one of the greatest UK avant/jazz-rock bands of all time. Their work, from their earliest performances as a psychedelic band, who were contemporaries of, and shared stages with Syd Barrett's Pink Floyd and the Jimi Hendrix Experience, all the way to being one of Europe's best known 'fusion' bands has influenced several generations of bands, and continues to be name-checked by today's hip experimentalists.

    Hidden Details’, released in 2018, exactly 50 years since the release of the band’s 1968 debut album ‘The Soft Machine’.

    Whilst the line-up of Soft Machine may have changed many times since the heady days of the late 1960’s, the band’s spirit of musical adventure, and the ease with which it freely avoids being pigeon holed and can move from powerful progressive jazz fusion to atmospheric psychedelia to free improvised jazz-rock to ambient loop music continues to make it both unique and totally contemporary.

    Sinds 1999 is Marshall weer betrokken in de revival van de 'Canterbury-scene'.
    Hij draait mee in een aantal projecten rond het oude Soft Machine. Een eerste initiatief was SoftWhere, met onder meer Hugh Hopper, Elton Dean en Keith Tippett. De volgende samenstelling was met Allan Holdsworth, SoftWorks. Na een album werd er uitgebreid opgetreden. Nadat John Etheridge Holdsworth had vervangen, werd de naam gewijzigd in Soft Machine Legacy. Soft Machine Legacy trad regelmatig op, onder andere op 10 mei 2005 in Zaandam; van dit optreden werden opnamen gemaakt die op album uitgebracht werden. Met het overlijden van Elton Dean liep dit project ten einde.
