REVIEW from O's Place Jazz Newsletter
Naperville, IL — February 2006
O's Place Review of the Big Three Trio

Performance Ratings:
5 = You can easily listen to all of the selections and over 75% are notable.
4 = You can easily listen to most of the selections and over half are of merit.

The Big Three Trio — "We Got Rhythm"
Performance: 4 / Sound: 5

O's Notes: These three guys, Previti, Cocuzzi, and Maher, are focused on giving us a naturally engaging jazz blues performance. Yes, it is just piano, bass and drums, with some gutsy lyrics thrown in and an insatiable sense of swing. No gimmicks, just a spirit that pulls you in. Among the best: "Ohh Shoo Bee Doo Bee," "Dead Presidents," and "God Bless The Child."
