About thirty years after the formation, the Instant Composers Pool (ICP) is still one of the most famous and respected jazz orchestras in Holland and abroad. Meanwhile the founders, pianist Misha Mengelberg and drummer/percussionist Han Bennink, have become icons in the international world of improvised music. At the end of the sixties Bennink released a duo record on his own ICP label. The name ICP was attributed to Mengelberg, who had made up a suitable synonym for improvising with the phrase ‘instant composing’. Worldwide the ICP made their breakthrough with beautiful Monk, Nichols and Ellington programs.
