Album Notes
My dear person. Not only have you purchased a gem of a disc, but you are now a member of a small but elite club. I mean, anyone can become a ( Insert musical group name here ) fan. And where does it get you? Apart from the risk of laryngitis or hearing loss, it's not likely to improve your mind. Whereas this record will certainly get your old brainbox working, ( and marvelling ) overtime. ( What's it mean? Why did they make it?... Is it jazz? )... etc. etc. Give it a chance. Don't just stick it on. Experiment with different volumes, listen to it in different rooms, with different people. If, for instance, you have invited a "special" friend around to hear it, serve a good champange, and play it fairly slowly and very softly, so you both have to be hubbled over the speakers. Bottom line, use your imagination, The Perry Weissman 3 have certainly used theirs. I have to go now, you see, I'm making enchillada sauce. - Shannon Dickey and Terry Thomas 2/7/1998.

Review of the pw3 CD in the December '98 issue of Cadence
Review of the pw3 CD in the December '98 issue of Cadence by Jerome Wilson
"As you can see there is no one named "Perry Weissman" in this group and
it's a five piece, not a trio. That is your first clue we aren't among
straight arrow hardboppers here. This band actually walks the same wacko
jazz-rock fringe as groups like the Lounge Lizards, the NRG Ensemble and
the Jazz Passengers but in a quieter way. This group contrasts a lot of
chunky guitar riffing with broad trombone and comes out sounding like
Roswell Rudd playing with the Ventures. It's an odd combination but
these musicians sound like they know what they are doing. "Soft Rock"
veers close to lounge music with its tightly massed guitars but added
layers of roller rink organ make the piece charmingly oddball. "Light
Bubble" with extended flute and trombone solos comes close to
conventional Jazz but "Hale-Bopp", almost a twist variation on the
"Twilight Zone" theme, takes it back out again. Your can actually notice Thelonious
Monk as an influence on this goofiness. "Wooden Nickel" is a rickety
dance tune based on the chords of "Well you Needn't" and they actually
do "Epistrophy" in a raw and sweaty version with wobbly guitar all over
the place. This ramshackle surf-punk-Dixieland Jazz is actually
something new and a lot
of fun."
