The actual last studio album of SOFT MACHINE, one of the greatest rock bands since the Sixties, went back thirty years ago. As time went by yet, many reformings happened and some live performances were played... But nothing prepared us to hear a new album someday ! Under the pseudonym of SOFT MACHINE LEGACY, four veterans, whose particularity is not to have ever played in the same incarnation before, are gathered. Jointly published by the Musea and Moonjune labels in 2006, and following "Legacy Live In Zaandam" (2005), this eponymous album is also the last discographic appearance of saxophonist Elton DEAN, who passed away little time after the recording sessions. Hugh HOPPER (Bass), John ETHERIDGE (Guitar) and John MARSHALL (Drums) complete the outfit. As always, the music of SOFT MACHINE is undefinable, somewhere between jazz, blues and rock, closer to free-jazz this time, with much improvisation. The album includes classics such as "Kite Runner" or "Strange Comfort", as well as eight new compositions. Here is the very last opportunity to listen to the legendary Elton DEAN, and probably SOFT MACHINE, in an eclectic and brilliant album. Would you dare to miss this chance ?
