"As much as any group anywhere, the Instant Composers Pool Orchestra encompasses a full range of modern musics: Ellington and Monk, Kurt Weill and European dance band music of a lost age, lacy Webern - y chamber music, South African kwela, free improvisation, conducted improvisation, interactive games, counterpoint and simultaneity, catchy melodies, pastel harmonies, order and built - in chaos," writes Kevin Whitehead in his book, New Dutch Swing. "ICP's mix is perplexing in the best sense: the music doesn't give up its secrets on first hearing, or second, or third. It keeps you coming back. This is jazz / improvised music at its most deft and sophisticated." Together since 1967, the 10-piece ICP is co-led by Misha Mengleberg (p) and Han Bennick (d) and features some of the best Dutch and European improvisers on the planet.
