Colin Vallon Trio : Ailleurs on hatOLOGY 636

Colin Vallon - piano, prepared piano
Pat Moret - double bass
Samuel Rohrer - drums

The members of this trio all share a strong awareness of sound quality and timbre, which sets them apart from other musicians. Three distinct instrumental voices - Colin Vallon's singing piano, Pat Moret's full reverberating bass and Samuel Rohrer's polyvalent drums - blend into a highly complex ensemble sound; here, too, the band has hardly anything in common with the traditional jazz piano trio conventions.

What is nearer to their heart than virtuoso pirouetting is weaving and elaborating concise sketches of moods and atmospheres, feverish emotions or bizarre combinations of sounds into dense textures. Here three artists are at work who are unable to speak with evasion or artifice. In other words: three true jazz musicians. That is, musicians who understand jazz as a living art form, and thus music that is played con amore. Tradition is neither glorified nor denied, instead, it stimulates the musicians to discover and express their own personal identity. - Tom Gsteiger
