João Paulo Esteves da Silva / Mário Franco / Samuel Rohrer: Brightbird

Read "Brightbird" reviewed by Henning Bolte

There is music that gradually unfolds, music that lingers in stasis, music with sparse tonal movement, and, sometimes, music that simply happens, like the symphonies of sound in nature. This trio's music is quite close to this last mode. Just a few tones open up a broad living-space and let sound happen and get enriched by ...

Colin Vallon: Danse

Read "Danse" reviewed by Angelo Leonardi

In questa terza incisione per l'ECM il trio di Colin Vallon prosegue e amplifica quant'aveva evidenziato in Le Vent, inciso nel 2014 con gli stessi partner e caratterizzato da un cambio di direzione rispetto al precedente Rruga (2011), con Samuel Rohrer alla batteria. Se in quest'ultimo lavoro l'interplay improvvisato restava un elemento centrale, combinandosi con tempi ...

Colin Vallon Trio: Le Vent

Read "Le Vent" reviewed by Neri Pollastri

Dopo il debutto con l'apprezzato Rruga, il trio svizzero di Colin Vallon torna a registrare, parzialmente rinnovato nell'organico--Julian Sartorius sostituisce il peraltro ottimo Samuel Rohrer--ma costante nelle atmosfere e nei temi, qui quasi interamente della penna del pianista e leader.

La musica del trio si basa su una narrazione lirica aperta e non ...

Colin Vallon Trio: Le Vent

Read "Le Vent" reviewed by John Kelman
