Canterbury Sans Frontières: Episode 24

Canterbury Sans Frontières: Episode 24

Something from Soft Machine Volume 2 preceded by a home recording of the same lineup playing free jazz seven years earlier, Didier Malherbe guesting with Hugh Hopper's band in Paris in 2003, French guitarist Alain Blessing paying tribute to Hatfield and the North (with help from Hopper and Greaves), Robert Wyatt singing in French, a Soft Machine-inspired band from early 70s Germany, Riley-inspired sounds from late 70s Italy, some late 60s Ellington, new tracks from current Canterbury favourites Syd Arthur and the Boot Lagoon, and the sound of Gong evaporating. Also, a tribute to Edgar Froese (RIP) featuring a one-hour mix of Tangerine Dream tracks from their first four (pre-Virgin Records) albums 1970-73.
