An amazing document of this legendary improvising collective – material recorded over the span of many years – from 1967 to 2009 – and featuring some of the most important free jazz players on the planet! CDs include albums ICP 001 through ICP 050, and the set also features two DVDs as well – with performances by Han Bennink
, Misha Mengelberg
, Willem Breuker, John Tchicai, Maarten Altena, Theo Loevendie, Manfred Schoof, Derek Bailey, Steve Lacy, Steve Beresford, Ab Baars, Peter Brotzmann, Dudu Pukwana
, and many others – all working in a variety of interesting combinations. The set comes with a huge booklet of notes, too – an amazing testament to the long-running project that is the Instant Composers Pool!
(Hand-numbered limited edition pressing! Includes a few stuck/stamped-on items, too – plus book, poster, and insert! NOTE: Inside of box is slightly damaged – a poor design – a corner has a very light ding, and this is reflected in the pricing.)
