But the man-made beats nevertheless accommodate some strange, beautiful melodies that shift between sensual fluency and provocative fragmentation, tumbling and twirling over chords that are alternately warm and glacial. All of which accounts for the prickly beauty of this inspired, spirited session...'not a single moment feels forced or staged, every second exists in relation to the leaders' polyrhythmic tours de force.
