After establishing himself as one of the world's foremost organists over the last decade, Sam Yahel showed off a new side in 2009 with a critically acclaimed piano trio recording that highlighted his broad musical interests and the dynamic interplay of his seasoned band. Now in their tenth year, bassist Matt Penman and drummer Jochen Rueckert again join Yahel as he engages with both the Hammond B3 and piano for an inspired album of fresh originals, and classics including "So in Love" and "A Beautiful Friendship."
