Sherrie Maricle - drums

Amy Shook - acoustic bass
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.
Both of 3D’s 2020 recordings, I Love To See You Smile (released in April 2020) and Christmas in 3D (released October 2020) were recorded at Red Rock Recording Studio in Saylorsburg, PA.

“Jackie Warren is a powerfully grooving pianist; Meanwhile Amy Shook and Sherrie Maricle set up a beat so strong it could drive a fleet of eighteen-wheelers." - Jerome Wilson, All About Jazz
