ICP Orchestra: Happy Dreams @ LITTLEFIELD Tonight

When the play “Criss Cross,” everything get criss-crossed. And when they play “Caravan,” the camels collide. The Dutch cut-ups are one of jazz’s treasures, and for over four decades they’ve placed whimsy and spontaneity on the same shelf as composition and craft. With sober  Misha Mengelberg and silly Han Bennink in front, a yin-yang vibe is always in the air. But check what other members bring to the party (Michael Moore, Wolter Weirbos, Tristan Honsinger, Ab Baars) and you’ll realize that they’re collectivists who share the creative responsibilities with mucho aplomb. Misha isn’t on this swing through the States, but his spirit always guides the group. 

 Littlefield, 622 Degraw Street, Brooklyn
9 pm 718-855-3388 $18.
