ICP since 1967
In 1967 Han Bennink, together with the pianist/composer Misha Mengelberg, founded the versatile ICP Orchestra, which is today known as one of the most creative groups in modern jazz. Mengelberg passed away in 2017, but his compositions are kept alive by the otherwise almost permanent line-up.
Whilst Mengelberg's oeuvre forms the basis, no ICP concerts sound the same. The musicians have learned to deal with the idiosyncrasies of timing or intonation of their fellow players, how to confuse their colleagues and how to bend or undermine the music during performance. This ensures that the music is full of surprises, twists and turns, nimble grace and strange outbursts.
