"2 Pilgrims" by Sam Yahel
From the album
I keep getting lost in this song. I'm so used to Yahel's sound, it throws me off hearing the piano; I keep expecting the organ to cut in. And then it's that the song is so pretty, skittering along at a pleasant pace, Yahel's artistic flourishes on the keys instigating some moments of introspection while simultaneously keeping my foot tapping. Nothing here not to like.
About the Album
After establishing himself as one of the world's foremost organists, 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.
