This is the second live album from this pairing of British trio Decoy with the veteran American improviser Joe McPhee. Despite recording some sporadically brilliant records over the last four decades, it's only recently that McPhee, who unusually plays both saxophones and trumpet, has emerged from relative obscurity. Decoy are also unusual in that their line-up features a Hammond organ. The music has space but soon hums with tension, McPhee sighing out melodies like a weary bugler over icy shimmers from the Hammond and the rhythm section's opening salvos. Eventually Edwards and Noble slip the leash and launch into an irresistible swing, triggering a high-octane workout of boiling intensity. Hawkins steps up to solo, worrying away at a couple of notes then breaking off into blurred, furious runs, like Jimmy Smith channelling Cecil Taylor.

Spontaneous Combustion 1" opens with McPhee's pocket trumpet squeals and stutters, over a pointillist backing which gradually coalesces behind heraldic fanfares. After many years performing in tandem Noble and Edwards prove virtually telepathic in their understanding, moving in and out of tempo at will.
