This Fresh Sounds concert will feature Duo ICP (Han Bennink, drums; Mary Oliver, violin/viola), with Mark Dresser on bass. Han Bennink and Mary Oliver met in Amsterdam in 1990 while both were performers at the Bimhuis’ October meeting.
Since 2000 they have been performing together, mostly in the Instant Composers’ Pool Orchestra (ICP). For their performance in San Diego Duo, ICP will be joined by contrabassist Mark Dresser. Together, they will present a musical journey navigating between improvisation and compositions by Misha Mengelberg, Herbie Nichols, Bennink & Oliver, and Mark Dresser.
