In 1958, the liner notes of a Jimmy Giuffre album
coined the term "instant composition" to describe improvisation. A few years later, pianist Misha Mengelberg made the term stick. He played with drummer Han Bennink on Eric Dolphy's "Last Date" (1964) and then the two founded the ICP in 1967. By 1974 it became a Tentet, and by the 1980s had begun to coalesce its present-day lineup, comprised of saxists/clarinetists Michael Moore, Ab Baars, and Tobias Delius, trombonist Wolter Wierbos, bassist Ernst Glerum, trumpeter Thomas Heberer, and violist Mary Oliver, along with Bennink and Mengelberg. The mature ICP
is hybrid of jazz ensemble and chamber orchestra, containing new originals and old tunes (Ellington, Monk, Herbie Nichols), jazz business and funny business, full-force raveups and improv breakdowns. It's full of surprises, unexpected turns, limber grance and strange eruptions. Nothing and no one else sounds like Amsterdam's finest - the world's longest-running
avant-garde jazz group - and no two gigs are ever alike.
Tickets $20 door. $15 advance at: Sound Cat Records, Caliban Books, Dave's Music Mine, Exchange Sq Hill, Exchange Downtown.
