Album Review

As pianist Brad Mehldau mentions in his lengthy and well thought-out liner notes, organist Sam Yahel, tenor saxophonist Joshua Redman and drummer Brian Blade each have the ability to sound like themselves no matter what the setting or the dominant style. Yahel is one of the most original organists of his generation for even when his tone recalls Jimmy Smith, his choice of notes does not. Redman and Blade also have original sounds and the three have played together on numerous occasions, often under the saxophonist's leadership. On Truth and Beauty, they perform six of Yahel's originals and three obscurities including Ornette Coleman's challenging "Check Up" and Paul Simon's relatively lightweight but lyrical "Night Game." Redman and Yahel blend together particularly well, with the ensembles logically leading to the solos and lots of close interaction. While none of the individual originals have memorable themes, the set of complex post-bop has a definite charm that grows

Not Really A Review.......

I just bought this album the other day, and I love it! But, I really am writing this review to pass on somep information concerning this line up. Sam Yahel, Brian Blade, and Joshua Redman are also known as Yaya3. There is a cd available, minus one tune, on iTunes. Same line up, same format, straight-ahead, organ trio. If you like this CD, you'll like that one too. Yaya3, pick it up!

Solid stright ahead jazz

this stuff swings, give it a listen

most under~rated player of his generation

For anyone who has not had a chance to check out Yahel, this album is a great opporunity! the guy is one of the most versatile players around, more importantly though, this album is a beautiful work of art! His compositions have a depth and poignancy to them ~ i have not been able to stop listening to this album for the last month and a half (its in constant rotation in my car) - Josh Redman and Brian Blade as always deliver - 5 stars not enough!!!!!
