Pending copyright assessment - Request a copy


This concert presents the arrangements of Kelly Ottaway, performed by his group the Modern Operative. As an improvising soloist, Alistair features in standard harmonic settings on tunes such as "Monks Mood" and his own composition "Yes and I Don't Care". Additionally, he features in free and collective improvisation created through a loose framework established by Ottaway. The framework serves as a musical and textural representation of his home state of Queensland - "Kuraby Meditations".
