Robert Glasper on piano, Alan Hampton on bass and Chris Dave on drums opened their substantial single set with No Worries. Well, there was one: the piano went from very low in the mix to feeding back before settling into the right balance by the end of the song.
The band was playing music from Glasper's two impressive Blue Note albums, as well as taking spontaneous turns down fresh and unexpected paths.
At the end of G & B, for example, Glasper started to work a riff in among Dave's tricky percussion explosions that was close to stride, or even boogie-woogie.
The closer was a new piece that took its mood and melodic vocabulary from country music, an acknowledgement of the band's Texan roots.
There was also an interlacing of Herbie Hancock's Maiden Voyage and Radiohead's Everything in its Right Place.
But neither the melodic nor the harmonic content of this music is quite as important as the rhythmic. At times it's like listening to three percussionists, overlaying cross-rhythms, speeding and slowing, slipping and sliding against each other like musical tectonic plates.
While each played impressive solos, each working and worrying minimal riffs into complex extended improvisations, it was as an interacting trio, and especially at high speed, that the band was at its best.
There was a certain sameness of mood, and when the band was flying it was usually in the same manner and in the same direction. If Glasper might sometimes seem a one-trick pony, it's still a pretty great trick.
