ICP Orchestra

Ragtime to swing, composed pieces to improvisation, bop to free jazz, classical to carnivalesque, the ICP Orchestra continues its run at the forefront of experimental, category-bending music. Instant Composers Pool (ICP) is a collective of Dutch composers and improvisers, formed in 1967 by Misha Mengelberg, Han Bennink, and Willem Breuker.

Han Bennink

Ken Vandermark/Nate Wooley Duo

Ken Vandermark is an American jazz composer and saxophone and clarinet player. A fixture on the Chicago-area music scene, Vandermark, a 1999 MacArthur Fellow, has earned critical praise for his playing and his multi-layered compositions, which balance intricate orchestration with passionate improvisation.

Nate Wooley is one of the most in-demand trumpet players in the burgeoning Brooklyn jazz, improv, noise, and new music scenes. He has performed regularly with John Zorn, Anthony Braxton, Fred Frith, Evan Parker, and Yoshi Wada. Wooley’s solo playing is often cited as part of an international revolution in improvised trumpet.
