Colin Vallon Trio - Willisau 2008

Sorry for being slow with the promised dime shows... the first one's stored in my RS account now, but here's one more that I upped quite a while ago and never came around sharing!

Subject of this post is a great young piano trio, headed by Swiss pianist Colin Vallon. Vallon is a talent to watch, a great lyrical yet powerful player! There'll be a second show of his trio up here later, and if you want to hear more, his hatOLOGY release "Ailleurs" comes highly recommended!
The members of his trio are bassist Patrice Moret, who has a great natural sound, and non-conformist drummer Samuel Rohrer, whom I firmly believe is one of the very best drummers currently active in jazz! You'll have to witness him live to see his impressive flow of ideas and feel his playful swinging and joyful poly-rhythms, but I think some of it you can hear on this recording, too... hope you'll dig!

Give these three guys a chance, they absolutely deserve to be heard!
