Club Fluxus: ICP Orchestra

ICP Orchestra


In 1967 pianist/composer Misha Mengelberg and drummer Han Bennink were co-founders of the versatile ICP Orchestra, nowadays known as one of the most creative groups in modern jazz. Mengelberg died in 2017, but his compositions are alive and well thanks to the orchestra’s virtually unchanged line-up. His compositions may form the basis, but no two ICP concerts sound the same. The ICP’s musicians derive so much fun from playing, and sowing confusion contributes to their pleasure. The music is packed with surprises, unexpected twists, supple grace and strange outbursts.
