On his previous ECM releases, Swiss pianist Nik Bartsch and his "Zen funk" band Ronin have served up hypnotic interlocking funk grooves that draw upon minimalism, techno and glitchy electronica, sheathed in an deceptively icy veneer. Live, a new two-disc concert set, demonstrates just how much heat is generated through Bartsch's slow-burn approach.
