To Order Woolloomooloo


In the magical year of 1967, experimental music having been my interest for some time, I wanted in this recording to meld traditional instruments with any other instruments that might be at hand. A spontaneous situation arose in which we were able to take the intros, themes, interludes and codas of my original works, and all go for a kind of 'lucky dip' in which each of us could feel free to use any of them at any time. This approach allowed us to simply listen and respond-in a disciplined freedom--stretching it as far as our collective jazz experience took us. -- Bryce Rohde
