SINGER/DRUMMER BIG JOE MAHER FRONTS THE BIG 3 JAZZ TRIO .

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The Big 3 Jazz Trio plays Straight-Ahead Jazz through its program of originals and standards. Theirs is a session of piano trio delights containing much rhythmic pride. The Blues runs through everything that they interpret. Drummer Big Joe Maher sings and propels with a loose demeanor. His Dead Presidents tune recalls the great times that Joe Williams gave us with Count Basie. As the trio takes I Got Rhythm for a ride, Mahers crisp snare drum breaks into stride with power. His Blues for Mr. Crab provides an interesting journey that drives with a Poinciana rhythmic undercurrent. Theres no doubt that The Big Three Trio remains grounded in tradition. Dr. Jazz explores an earlier era, while Ooh Shoo Bee Doo Bee borrows from Dizzy Gillespie. 


The Trios history lesson comes with spontaneity and grit. Each selection finds the three artists inspired. Pianist John Cocuzzi wrote Marielle, a timeless Blues vocal that endears the listener intuitively. He interprets Do Nothing Till You Hear from Me at the electric piano with the songs original sentiment, unleashing its Blues overtones. Aint the Gravy Good? puts both vocalists to work in a humorous escapade, while God Bless the Child is rendered with heartfelt passion. With a recommended program of standards and similar musical state-ments, The Big Three Trio makes a lasting impression through its timeless interpretations.    Jim Santella
