The venerable David Tolley (a legend of Melbourne improvisation for over 40 years), reconvenes a number of collaborations, including THE OTHER and CONNECTIONS for this week's concert at MIUC. Over two sets, the 10-piece ensemble will perform various combinations from duos to tentets of rarefied “instant composition.” The concert also features the reprise of CONNECTIONS, a trio featuring David with collaborators, Dur-é Dara and Phil Treloar after a 22 year hiatus. Needless to say, THE OTHER boasts some of the most accomplished improvisers from the fields of jazz and abstraction.
