"Live in Zürich" was recorded at Zürich's Unerhört!-Festival in late 2016, and the album consists of two extended tracks and a closing piece. "Part 1: Analytical Symmetry/Fractal Sketches" reimagines two Ortiz tracks from Hidden Voices. That trio featured Eric Revis on bass and drummer Gerald Cleaver and the new lineup has a fresh perspective on this one-half hour amalgam. Chad Taylor's mbira adds an intriguing African flavor to the opening; the notes manifest in distinctive tones that maintain a purity, then fade almost immediately after each is plucked. Jones bowed bass and Ortiz' percussive low end make for an eerily exotic brew that transitions multiple times from lyrical to thundering.
