About the track

Sam Yahel steps boldly back on to the scene with "Hometown." Listeners are now invited to sit back and enjoy the ride as Yahel bravely embarks on a career changing course, with the release of his first piano trio date on Posi-Tone, which also features the solid harmonic foundation of bassist Matt Penman and the explosive metrics of drummer Jochen Ruckert. Many jazz fans may already be familiar with Sam Yahel and his earlier work on the Hammond B-3, playing with the many of the brightest stars of today, such as Joshua Redman, Jim Rotondi, Ryan Kisor or Norah Jones, but now it's all hands on deck and full speed ahead as the piano trio navigates steadily away from the known and familiar to move swiftly out beyond the landmarks of the past into the uncharted depths and dangerous currents of modern collective improvisation. "Hometown" is the sincere exploration of an artist seeking to redefine his craft by utilizing a new instrument and a challengingly different modality of musical expression to uncover his new voice while ultimately remaining true to himself and relevant to that which is swingingly straight ahead, and as such is sure to bring a smile to serious listeners everywhere.
