Soft Machine 50 Years Tour


Brand new studio album 'Hidden Details' coming soon!

This is three quarters of the celebrated 70's version of the legendary group which recorded the acclaimed 'Softs' album in 1975, completed by outstanding sax star Theo Travis (Robert Fripp/David Gilmour/Steven Wilson/The Tangent). The band plays material from the era (compositions by Hugh Hopper, Mike Ratledge, Karl Jenkins) as well as many contemporary works, as featured on their brand new album '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.

Guest Appearance

Theo appears as special guest soloist on the new eponymous solo album by Gleb Kolyadin, pianist extraordinaire from the band Iamthemorning. The album is released on Kscope and an extract of one of the tracks Theo appears on is featured here.

"Gleb Kolyadin is an emotive exploration of self-identity; a story of two parts with interweaving leitmotifs. The album's central concept weaves through an elaborate tonal and thematic structure, built around the extraordinary rhythm section of Gavin Harrison and Nick Beggs, which is accented at its focal points by guest appearances from Steve Hogarth, Jordan Rudess, Mick Moss and Theo Travis." ~ KScope
