Profile
As the name suggests, Soft Machine Legacy is a continuation of the original Soft Machine, both in personnel and spirit. Members have included a number of Soft Machine alumni and associates, including Hugh Hopper, Elton Dean, John Marshall, Allan Holdsworth, John Etheridge, Theo Travis, Fred Baker, and Roy Babbington. The origin of the group was a performance at a festival in Seattle, which went so well the group recorded, first using the name Soft Works, later settling on Soft Machine Legacy. After many years using that name, in 2016 they decided to drop the "Legacy" and become a new incarnation of Soft Machine.
