Dan Rodricks: Vanished faces of a West Virginia boom town

Colin Vallon Trio, "Rruga"

Maybe the only jazz recording released in 2011 to draw musical cues from Turkish folk and Thom Yorke, this album from the young, Swiss-born pianist advances a longtime legacy of European jazz with empathetic ensemble playing and a rich variety of textured, evocative twists that sidestep convention.
