Mike Jurkovic's Best Releases of 2017: Pianos Lead the Way

Read "Mike Jurkovic's Best Releases of 2017: Pianos Lead the Way" reviewed by Mike Jurkovic

There are some years when certain artists and their instrument stand tallest among the tall. This year it was piano players. Established names, exciting discoveries. Creation music for repeated listening, relentless invention, insight, humor, new equations. Each with a particular turn, a defining touch, that takes you past the chaos of our harshest days.

Anouar Brahem: Blue Maqams

Read "Blue Maqams" reviewed by Mike Jurkovic

Oud-master Anouar Brahem's instantly intoxicating, Blue Maqams, caps off a truly remarkable year for ECM Records. Just think, the label's release schedule this year included essential recordings by Benedikt Jahnel Trio's The Invariant, Django Bates' breakthrough The Study of Touch, Colin Vallon Trio's Danse, Vijay Iyer Sextet's Far From Over, and Gary Peacock's Tangents, all of ...

Colin Vallon Trio

Featuring the music of Colin Vallon
Duration: 1:37

Much of [Vallon's] music exemplifies tranquility, even in the quirkier numbers, but there is always a restive quality, a tension that holds one's consideration and makes this more than a minimal experience. Danse has moments of unsurpassed beauty, offset by inventive, searching passages that portend the unexpected paths Vallon journeys down. --All About Jazz

Colin Vallon Trio: Le Vent

Read "Le Vent" reviewed by Hrayr Attarian

Swiss pianist Colin Vallon's fourth release as a leader, Le Vent is a truly collaborative effort that eschews individual solos in favor of a haunting, collective sound. The results are atmospheric and exquisitely formalistic. This is not to suggest that, because of its ambient nature, the album is without substance. On the contrary, its structure becomes ...

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

When Bill Evans emerged in the 1950s, he represented a paradigm shift for the jazz piano trio. No longer a lead instrument supported by a rhythm section, Evans' more egalitarian approach to music-making allowed delineated soloists to engage in a more fully conversational context, with any instrument capable of pushing the music in a new direction ...

Colin Vallon Trio: Rruga

Read "Rruga" reviewed by Dan McClenaghan

The piano trio--piano, bass and drums--can seem something of an anachronism in a time when musical artists make use of synthesizers, electronics, laptops and loops to craft their sounds. But scores of pianists still go to the acoustic trio format as one of their primary means of expression. In looking toward jazz veterans, Keith Jarrett and ...

Colin Vallon Trio Rruga ECM Records 2011 As much as many artists have a clear idea of where they are and where they're going, there's no denying the value of a strong producer. Colin Vallon's first two trio discs--2004's Les Ombres, on the small Swiss NotsiNOISY label, and 2007's Ailleurs, ...

Colin Vallon Trio: Rruga

Read "Rruga" reviewed by AAJ Italy Staff

Il debutto ECM del trio del pianista svizzero Colin Vallon è pienamente allineato all'estetica predominante dell'etichetta bavarese. Grande attenzione al suono, naturalmente, atmosfere sospese e minimaliste, eccellenza tecnica dei musicisti e l'inconfondibile Eicher's touch, croce e delizia e fonte di irrisolvibili discussioni tra appassionati e addetti ai lavori. Ciò che intriga in questo lavoro è il ...

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
