MICHAEL DOHERTY’S MUSIC LOG
3D Jazz Trio: “I Love To See You Smile” – The album opens with a cover of Randy Newman’s “I Love To See You Smile,” which functions as the title track, and it seems like it was chosen to make all of us who are listening smile. There is a groovy bass line, a delightfully light touch on the piano, and a cool drum solo, all of which should help shake your blues and make this strange reality we are caught in more enjoyable. And that’s just the first track. There is also a wonderful and lively rendition of “Bésame Mucho” that begins with some beautiful work on piano, a fun version of “Back At The Chicken Shack” and a fantastic “Recado Bossa Nova.” The album ends with a breezy, exciting take on “L.O.V.E.” The 3D Jazz Trio is made up of Jackie Warren on piano, Amy Shook on bass, and Sherrie Maricle on drums. This album is scheduled to be released on May 22, 2020.
