In Albanian, rruga means “path,” an apt title for this album given the deceptive simplicity in the routes laid out by this Swiss piano trio. Slow, pulsing chords and simple lines float along atop a wash of cymbals and knotty bass. And while much of the music has the contemplative quality of Brad Mehldau’s forays into folk and pop, there’s obvious technical muscle waiting to emerge in the quickened tempos of “Polygonia.” Still, somehow, this all lulls us into a trance as we follow Vallon’s steep path, from a simple point of departure to an abstract and challenging destination.
