Colin Vallon Trio – Le vent (2014) High-Fidelity FLAC Stereo 24bit/96kHz

Artist: Colin Vallon Trio
Title: Le vent
Genre: Jazz
Release Date: 2014
Duration: 01:00:08
Quality: High-Fidelity FLAC Stereo 24bit/96kHz
Label: ECM

This is the second ECM album from the Colin Vallon Trio. Like the wind celebrated in its title track, the group has a subtle, insinuating power. Emerging from a still and silent place, its music can breathe gently, or steadily build pressure until attaining an eruptive forcefulness. This combining of poetic compression and quiet relentlessness was evident on the ECM debut Rruga three years ago, but with leader Vallon now writing almost all of the repertoire (although opening tune “Juuichi” is by Patrice Moret), and new drummer Julian Sartorius detailing its floating rhythms, the Swiss trio has entered a brave new space where touch and inflection are decisively more important than soloistic gesture. Melodies, unfolding slowly, are shared between Moret’s bass and Vallon’s piano. A fresh group language is being developed here, extended in the group improvisations which close the set.

Also like the ABQ, these performances are described as being recorded ‘in concert’, but applause has been edited out and indeed there’s nothing to suggest live performance.
