This stonking live recording features Hammond-organ trio Decoy in company with cult US saxophonist McPhee, whose wildly energetic squawks make it hard to believe he's over 70.

While the music is truly made up on the spot, there's no lack of shape, with the three pieces developing structure through constant shifts of pulse and metre. Alexander Hawkins on Hammond is a true heir to Larry Young, while John Edwards on double bass and Steve Noble on drums keep the fire burning.
