Title – ‘Christmas in 3D’
Artist – 3D Jazz Trio
For those not in the know, in the spirit of swingin’ holiday classics like A Charlie Brown Christmas (Vince Guaraldi Trio) and Ella Wishes You a Swingin’ Christmas (Ella Fitzgerald), the 3D Jazz Trio is thrilled to share their inspired arrangements of ten holiday favorites.
Selecting, arranging, performing, and recording these 10 songs was a heartfelt, joyful musical adventure, fueled by the warmth and magic of the season and the musicians’ happy holiday memories.
Indeed, the trio was so committed to capturing the holiday spirit that they wore their Christmas pajamas to the recording studio!
The 3D Jazz Trio’s motto is “Fiercely swinging on purpose, with purpose,” and while they uphold their motto with unbridled enthusiasm throughout the recording, listeners will also be treated to moments of calypso, samba, salsa, gospel, and even a little bit of country, all creating sounds of the season for everyone to enjoy year after year!

Opening on the piano tinkling brilliance of ‘Winter Wonderland,’ they back that up seamlessly with the frantic, yet cultured and drum-led ‘Up on the Housetop,’ the foot-tappin’ ‘Greensleeves,’ the joyful Charlie Brown themed ‘O Christmas Tree,’ and then we get the fervent hoedown appeal, and a uniquely different approach to ‘Please Daddy (Don’t Get Drunk This Christmas).
The stand up bass of ‘God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen’ is brought forth next, and that’s followed by the lighter, twinkling ambiance of ‘I Wonder As I Wander,’ the jingle bell enhanced ‘White Christmas,’ coming to a close on a bluesy ‘Silent Night,’ and then the finger-snappin’, slow hipsway of ‘Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas.’
