The third in a documentary series about progressive music-- this film guides you through the amazing history and development of the Canterbury Scene, a sub-genre of Progressive Rock Music, and its influence on contemporary bands.
The emergence of the Canterbury Scene of the late 60s and early 70s represents a remarkable period in the history of British progressive rock music and, most notably, the development of Jazz Rock. Some of these bands were founded by a member of Soft Machine or Caravan while others were obviously influenced by them. As a result, a number of later bands that formed outside of Canterbury (and the UK) have been labeled as “Canterbury” bands.
