ICP Orchestra
On first hearing this CD may sound to you like an ill-programmed mess, with the improvisations up front and the catchy numbers buried deep. But with ICP, over the long haul or short, the more you hear it, the more apparent its trajec tory becomes, the more orderly and less chaotic it sounds. Or, the more you hear ICP's improvised “instant compositions" and their instant demolitions of Misha's highly whistleable tunes, the less clear it becomes what's order and what's chaos to begin with. They rewrite the book on accepted mu sical practices, just as they rewrite their own book, every precious evening they're on the bandstand. —Kevin Whitehead

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
