The Instant Composers Pool (ICP) is a unique, internationally renowned collective of Dutch jazz composer-improviser-instrumentalists formed in 1967 by pioneers Misha Mengelberg, Han Bennink and Willem Breuker.
From ragtime to swing, bop to free jazz, classical to carnival, nothing else sounds quite like the ICP. Every gig is a surprise - no two ICP programmes are ever the same.
Now celebrating both 50 years of the group, and co-founder Han Benninks 75th birthday, in the accompanying documentary ICP also celebrates the last days of musical genius Misha Mengelberg as he and the band came to terms with the inevitability of his Alzheimers Disease before he finally stopped playing in 2013.
