  About Seamus Blake, Ari Hoenig, Mike Moreno, and Sam Yahel Returning anew to the original record, it’s fascinating to re-discover how provocative Pink Floyd’s classic remains, and to hear how well this quartet’s collective interplay served that music.  And how beautifully Sam Yahel’s organ-while not the dominant voice, surely a prominent presence-sets the aesthetic […]
