Soft Machine Legacy detail London show

Soft Machine Legacy have announced a show at Ronnie Scott’s Jazz Club in London.

The one-off appearance on August 9 sees original Soft Machine members John Etheridge, Roy Babbington and John Marshall team up with saxophonist and flautist Theo Travis and pianist Keith Tippet.

The evening will feature “prog-rock, jazz-fusion, rocking blues and every point in between” and tickets are available now direct from Ronnie Scott’s website.

The group’s last release was 2013’s Burden Of Proof (opens in new tab).
