THE JAZZ PAGE
I Love To See You Smile is the outstanding latest release by the 3D Jazz Trio. The unit, featuring Jackie Warren on piano, Amy Shook on bass and Sherrie Maricle on drums, performs under a few different banners, but always at the core of the various settings. The trio is as together as a band gets, performing at the top of their games with the ease of a group of players who have worked with each other as long as these three players have. The nice renditions of works by Jimmy Smith, Randy Newman, Irving Mills and Matt Dennis, among others, is enhanced by the wonderful arrangements of the material. Some truly great swing and top-notch musicianship is at the heart of this one. Fantastic work, as always!
