Misha Enzovoort:

Some years ago, band leader, composer and pianist Misha Mengelberg started suffering from dementia. Cherry Duyns follows this European jazz icon throughout a week of performances in London's Vortex jazz club. In view of his deteriorating condition, this is certain to be his last foreign gig. The members of his band start preparing to say their long-postponed farewells to Mengelberg, with whom they have played for decades. For Mengelberg, making music is as natural as drawing breath, but now that his own brain has declared war on him, the question arises of how long he can carry on playing with the ensemble ICP (Instant Composers Pool). Duyns cautiously asks the band members if he could be hurting himself by continuing to play? No way, one of them answers resolutely. The fact that Mengelberg is still onstage with the band in spite of his illness fits perfectly with his aesthetic belief that everyone can join in. After all, he loves confusion and craziness. In his clear moments, Mengelberg still has strong opinions about other composers, like John Cage ("pretty antagonistic music") and Chopin ("spectacularly dull and irritating"). In a playful moment, he uses his walking stick to play the piano, but the question inevitably arises of whether the ensemble can go on without its lynchpin.
