From All About Jazz:

Despite a cold and damp Sunday night in January, a packed house came to hear a stellar group of musicians from the Netherlands for a performance at the FringeArts Center in the Old City section of town. This collective of seasoned and versatile musicians call themselves the ICP or Instant Composers Pool, and they embody guitarist Jim Hall’s broad definition of jazz as (virtually any) improvised music as opposed to adherence to the particular genre or structure of traditional jazz. Some would call it free or avante garde jazz, but these labels don’t quite fit what ICP is all about.
