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.

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!"

Since its inception the trio has played at many of the country’s most prestigious venues including:
Dizzy’s Club Coca-Cola (NYC,) Mezzrow (NYC,) New World Stages (NYC,) Lincoln Center Out-of-Doors (NYC,) National Sculpture Gardens (D.C.,) Washington Women in Jazz Festival (D.C.,) the Cleveland Playhouse (Clvd, Oh) Tri-C Jazz Festival (Clvd, Oh,) Blu Jazz (Akron, Oh) The Bop-Stop (Clvd, Oh) Nighttown (Clvd, Oh.,)The Delaware Theater Company (Wilmington, DE,) True Blue Jazz Festival (Rehoboth Beach, DE.,) World Café Live (Phila, PA) Maple City Jazz Festival (Honesdale, PA,) The Deer Head Inn (DWG, PA,) COTA Jazz Festival (DWG, PA,) South (Phila, PA) and The Penn’s Landing Playhouse (Phila. PA.) They were featured on The Kate TV’s “live” music series with Maurice Hines (PBS) and twice on WVIA radio’s Homegrown Music Series.

Jackie, Amy and Sherrie are also dedicated 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 high schools, colleges and universities throughout the country. This summer they will serve as artists-in-residence at Maryland Summer Jazz in Rockville, MD.

The 3D Jazz Trio’s most prestigious honor to date was being invited to perform at legendary music icon Nancy Wilson’s 80th Birthday Party. It was held on February 20, 2017 at the Taglyan Complex in Los Angeles California. We performed at the request of Ms. Wilson herself.

The band’s self-entitled CD was released in 2016 and recorded “live” at WVIA Radio in Pittston, PA.
