Concept 

Hard Core on the Fly was conceived by trumpeter Scott Tinkler and debuted in 2012. The 2014 season will again be curated by Tinkler who has programmed a different combination of AAO elders and up and coming new musicians for each performance. Including renowned saxophonist George Garzone (USA) who will join the ensemble in Melbourne on 21 August and Perth on 28 August..

"The idea behind these performances is to broaden the musician base of the AAO and introduce new energy and ideas into the improvising culture of AAO members, creating new musical relationships and recognising established ones.
"Each of the established artists involved have very strong ideas about improvisation and varied but well practiced approaches. Each week will see some well established musical relationships with the added excitement of brand new ones lurking.

"It is my hope that in the course of collaboration through performance that every one involved is challenged to find ways to relate and communicate with the other artists. My ultimate hope is that each week the joy of exploring music through improvisation is experienced by the artists. Audiences in past years have delighted in witnessing and sharing this experience and we look forward to welcoming them again," series curator Tinkler said.
 
For the first time the AAO will also conduct private workshops specifically on improvisation at WAAPA (Perth), the Western Australian Youth Jazz Orchestra (Perth), and Southern Cross University (Lismore). Facilitators include Scott Tinkler, Stephen Magnusson, James Greening, Gian Slater and Carl Dewhurst.
