Central Pennsylvania Friends of Jazz The 3D Jazz Trio Thursday, April 8, 7:30 pm

Fiercely swinging on purpose, with purpose, this powerhouse trio plays original, traditional and contemporary standards from all genres of music. Their unique style and innovative arrangements are always super-charged by their boundless musical joy and gratitude.

Sherrie, Amy, and Jackie met in May of 2014 at the Cleveland Playhouse while playing in The DIVA Jazz Orchestra as part of Maurice Hines' award-winning show Tappin' Thru Life. From their first shared downbeat, they became kindred-swinging spirits and the resulting musical synergy was fast and fierce...or as the New York Times said…"Blistering Hot!" The show received the 2016 Audelco Awards' Musical Production of the Year.

Since its inception, 3D has performed at many of the world's most prestigious venues and festivals, including: The Blue Note (NYC) Dizzy's Club (NYC), Mezzrow (NYC), Lincoln Center Out-of-Doors (NYC), The Jazz Kitchen (Indianapolis, IN), Blues Alley (D.C.), Tri-C Jazz Festival (Clvd, OH), and The Deer Head Inn (DWG, PA), and are scheduled to play at the Rochester International Jazz Festival (Rochester, NY), The Gilmore International Keyboard Festival (Kalamazoo, MI), and the Festival Internacional de Música La Guarapachanga (Pinar del Rio, Cuba). They were featured on The Kate TV's "live" music series with Maurice Hines (PBS) and three times on WVIA radio's Homegrown Music Series.

Jackie, Amy and Sherrie are also experienced and enthusiastic educators. In 2019 the group received a rousing standing ovation as they headlined the opening performance at Jazz Educator's Network Conference in Reno, NV. They were recently guest soloists with the Binghamton University Jazz ensemble (NY); and they've presented workshops and clinics at numerous universities, colleges, and high schools throughout the country. In summer 2020 they will serve as artists-in-residence for the second time at Maryland Summer Jazz in Rockville, MD.

3D's most recent recording, I Love To See You Smile, was recorded in January 2020 at Red Rock Recording Studio. The band's self-entitled CD was released in 2016 and recorded "live" at WVIA Radio. Look for their upcoming release, Holiday in 3D, in November 2020.
