If you thought that meant Insane Clown Posse and got excited, you're probably reading the wrong blog. Having said that, I am very excited about the Instant Composers Pool's upcoming appearance at the Village's Le Poisson Rouge venue on Thursday, March 31. The Amsterdam-based group currently includes Misha Mengelberg and Han Bennink (co-founders), as well as Tristan Honsinger, Mary Oliver, Tobias Delius, Ab Baars, Thomas Heberer, Michael Moore, Ernst Glerum, and Wolter Wierbos. As you can see from the video below (filmed live at the Bimhuis), it will be something of a senior citizen's club, but the group sounds just as vibrant as they did 30 years ago when John Tchicai was still a regular collaborator. (Back in September, Lucky Psychic Hut uploaded a wonderful and woefully out-of-print LP from 1977, which features Peter Brotzmann and WFMU-favorite Michel Waisvisz on a cracklebox of his own invention). The last several albums have been great; I've uploaded a track from ICP 049 below, as well as one from Tobias Delius' Luftlucht, which features three of the collective's members (Delius, Bennink, and Honsinger). You can read a review in the latest issue of All About Jazz NY (recently renamed The New York City Jazz Record for proprietary reasons), available online here. In summation, juggalos: bad. Free jazz group infused with the spirit of Monk and Nichols: good.
