Soft Machine Legacy e Keith Tippett tornano ad esibirsi insieme in concerto, il prossimo 20 luglio al Band on the Wall a Manchester (Regno Unito).

John Etheridge brings the Soft Machine Legacy to the Band on the Wall for an exclusive engagement with special guest Keith Tippett (piano). Soft Machine Legacy is a reunion of three members of 70's pioneer band Soft Machine (John Etheridge, Roy Babbington, John Marshall) plus reedsman Theo Travis. They have been together for nine years - originally with Hugh Hopper and Elton Dean - and have produced five albums so far. Pianist Keith Tippett has been a national treasure and cornerstone of the improvising scene for five decades with an astonishing history of creativity. At the Frankfurt Jazz Festival in 2012, Keith joined Soft Machine for a triumphant concert and this unique collaboration is being re-united especially for this year's Manchester Jazz Festival.
