Soft Machine :: Live At Jazz Bilzen

Dig into this priceless footage of Soft Machine performing an early take of Robert Wyatt's magnum opus, "Moon in June". With bassist Hugh Hopper rounding out the trio (following the departure of Kevin Ayers), this Wyatt/Ratledge/Hopper line-up is the force behind Volume Two and "Moon in June" landing spot, Third, in which the band plunged further into merging obtuse psychedelia with their singular brew of jazz fusion. Joined by the likes of the Ornette Coleman Quartet, Shocking Blue and Keith Jarrett, Jazz Bilzen might have been the perfect setting for the peak of this seminal trio . . .
