A singular interpretation of a fusion of progressive rock, modern jazz and avant-garde
Soft Machine is a leading group (however little-known) of the British progressive rock scene; central figure of the Canterbury scene (Caravan, Camel, Gong, Henri Cow, etc.). They will develop throughout their albums, including their first four, a singular interpretation of progressive rock, modern jazz and avant-garde fusion.
Volume Two, considered much more prog Rock than Jazz, offers a very distinctive blend of all those elements while keeping a psychedelic flavor. The result: a ground-breaking album!
