Utrecht (NL), Le Guess Who?: ICP Orchestra

The incomparable Instant Composers Pool Orchestra are like the Jedi Knights of improvisation: a collective of musical marvels hacking the conventions of their individual instruments, setting an arena to clash, challenge and coalesce with one another. Founded by the late pianist Mischa Mengelberg and maverick skinsman Han Bennink, the ICP Orchestra is part jazz band, part chamber orchestra. When performing live, harmony can be found in chaos and set arrangements are often employed playfully to instill confusion. Above all, the Composers Pool's a one of a kind celebration of individuality within a collective.

Oslo (NO), Victoria: ICP Orchestra 50th Anniversary Concert

“Improvisasjon er hverdagslig … som å krysse gata” har Han Bennink sagt. Amsterdam-baserte Instant Composers Pool Orchestra, eller ICP, har nå improvisert på aller høyeste nivå i et halvt århundre. Et mangehodet improvisasjonsmonster som i det ene øyeblikket groover som gale og i det neste spiller følsomme ballader, alt gjennomsyret av raus respektløshet, og som mer enn gjerne rister kjærlig i giganter som Duke Ellington eller Thelonius Monk. Medlemmer har kommet og gått, men grunnleggerne Han Bennink og nylig avdøde Misha Mengelberg har forblitt kjernen i kollektivet.

I år fyller ICP femti år. Femti år! Det er virkelig verdt å feire. Og når musikken fortsatt er like vital og fremadstormende, fant vi det på sin plass å gå all in med tre fantastiske kvelder i samarbeid med Blow Out!. Første kveld på Café Mir møter vi ICP-erne i nye konstellasjoner med norske musikere. Festen fortsetter på Victoria de påfølgende dagene med orkesteret i små og store comboer og ikke minst – i full tutti! ICP Orchestra er et musikkhistorisk fenomen, dypt sofistikert, uendelig underholdende og noe helt for seg selv. Må oppleves.

Ab Baars – klarinett/saksofon, Tobias Delius – klarinett/saksofon, Michael Moore – klarinett/saksofon, Thomas Heberer – trompet, Wolter Wierbos – trombone, Mary Oliver – fiolin/bratsj, Tristan Honsinger – cello, Ernst Glerum – bass, Guus Janssen – piano, Han Bennink – trommer

Vilnius (LI), Vilnius Jazz Festival: ICP Orchestra

Išgirsti Olandijos „Instant Composers Pool Orchestra“ (ICPO) bus įvykis džiazo publikai jau vien dėl to, kad šiame kolektyve tarp kitų korifėjų groja vienas jo įkvėpėjų – legendinis būgnininkas Hanas Benninkas, šiemet minintis 75-metį. O ICPO šį sezoną švenčia kūrybinės veiklos 50-metį!

Šlovingąjį olandų kolektyvą kartu su H.Benninku įkūrė šiemet miręs garsus džiazo pianistas ir kompozitorius Misha Mengelbergas, apsėstas “Fluxus“ idėjų. Prie tandemo buvo prisijungęs ir didis džiazo anarchistas Willemas Breukeris, vėliau įkūręs olandų džiazo flagmanu tapusį „Willem Breuker Kollektief“, kuris drebino ir „Vilnius Jazz“.

Šiandien ICPO groja kelių kartų talentingiausi Olandijos improvizuotojai. Tai yra pusiau džiazo grupė, pusiau kamerinis orkestras su įsiterpusiais į jį styginių trio bei pučiamųjų kvintetu. Žodžiu, fantastiškas darinys, kurio muzika, anot kritikų, – su niekuo nepalyginama! Jos užrašytus epizodus keičia spontaniškos improvizacijos, stulbinančios netikėtais minties posūkiais ir energijos proveržiais. Kompozicijų temas kuria visi orkestro muzikantai.

Bergen (NL), Museum Kranenburgh: Han Bennink Exposition/Opening/Book Presentation

Han Bennink (Zaandam, 1942) is een begenadigd drummer en begaafd beeldend kunstenaar. Het multitalent verbindt disciplines en stelt creatieve vrijheid en experiment voorop, waarmee hij een voorbeeld is voor veel jonge kunstenaars. Kranenburgh viert zijn 75e verjaardag met een totaalkunstwerk dat muziek, ritme, ordening en kunst verenigt. Tekeningen, foto’s, assemblages, installaties en collages komen samen in een tentoonstellingsontwerp van Irma Boom.

Jazz en humor
De drummer Bennink is autodidact en een fenomeen in de internationale jazzwereld, bekend om de manier waarop hij jazz en absurdistische humor combineert. Hij is medeoprichter van het orkest Instant Composers Pool (ICP) dat dit jaar 50 jaar bestaat en nog steeds internationaal furore maakt.

Beeldende kunst en inspiratie
De beeldend kunstenaar Bennink is opgeleid aan de Gerrit Rietveld Academie in Amsterdam. Sterk beïnvloed door de anti-kunst van Dada relativeert ook hij kunst met een grote K. Uit wat hij noemt ‘een soort betrokkenheid met de dingen’ hergebruikt Bennink ogenschijnlijk waardeloze objecten uit zijn directe omgeving, zoals kapotte trommelvellen en stokken. In zijn sculpturen en installaties krijgen ze een tweede leven. Voor zijn tekeningen en collages put Bennink uit zijn persoonlijke herinneringen en intuïtie. Vogels en vliegtuigen keren hierin vaak terug, symbolen van dezelfde vrijheid die hij verpersoonlijkt tijdens zijn optredens. 

Uitstallingen
Irma Boom creëerde een aantal plateaus waarop Bennink zijn werken heeft uitgespreid. Via deze uitstallingen kijken we mee in zijn hoofd, waar muziek en beeldende kunst onlosmakelijk met elkaar zijn verbonden en waar we zijn spontane, vaak absurdistische associaties kunnen volgen. 

Irma Boom is een internationaal gerenommeerd ontwerper die vele prijzen ontving, onder meer voor haar boekontwerpen. Voor Bennink ontwierp ze de monografie HAN BENnInK die dit najaar tijdens de tentoonstelling verschijnt.

Ben Herman altsax
Peter Beets piano
Ruud Jacobs contrabas
Han Bennink drums

Het zal weinigen ontgaan zijn dat Han Bennink dit jaar 75 is geworden. Hij speelt op de ZJFT met de Dutch Impro Academy en met dit superkwartet. Op zijn 22ste drumde hij in het Pim Jacobs Trio. Er is een prachtig youtube filmpje met gitarist Wes Montgomery, die geamuseerd omkijkt naar de zich in het zweet werkende jonge Han. Tegenwoordig speelt Bennink weer met de inmiddels 79-jarige bassist Ruud Jacobs in het trio van pianist Peter Beets. Voeg daar altsaxofonist Benjamin Herman aan toe en je krijgt een hard swingend gezelschap.

Han, nog de felicitaties van ons allemaal!

London (UK), Cafe OTO: Han Bennink/Spring Heel Jack (trio) + Han Bennink/Steve Beresford (duo) + special guest Terrie Ex

Han Bennink is an international treasure, a towering catalyst bringing sparkle, humour and character to an art form that too often is dull.” – London Jazz News

In the fields of experimental and outsider music, the word "legendary" can be applied far too liberally, but for Han Bennink no other word will do. Celebrating a three-quarter century this year, the Dutch drummer and percussionist has had a colossal impact and influence in the fields of free jazz and improvised music, from his seminal and varied work with the likes of John Tchicai, Peter Brötzmann and Derek Bailey in the 60s and 70s, to a still restlessly inventive collaborative output with artists as wide-ranging as The Ex, Pat Thomas and Eugene Chadbourne in more recent years.

Cafe OTO has had the priviledge of playing host to many of the greats of improvised music since its inception in 2008, but one artist who never seems to have performed here enough is Han Bennink. This residency – his first shows here since 2013 – aims to go some way in redressing that balance, with a packed line-up of duo and trio performances alongside collaborators old and new.

Combining equal parts virtuosity and anarchic irreverence, Bennink has never rested on his laurels, and this should be an enthralling and thrillingly unpredictable three days

“What ultimately makes Bennink special is his manifest love for the music, a love that inclines him to tear down the cardboard walls that too often separate different schools of jazz. At his best, with colleagues who share his all-encompassing stylistic embrace, Bennink plays the continuum of jazz as an instrument unto itself.” – Drummerworld
