Good Woman's Love
PICK 3 founded in 1995 by Tom Eaton *** REVIEWS OF PICK 3's 'A Good Woman's Love' *** ..An all-around instrumentalist talent. Each of the performers exhibits a convincing ability in a wide variety of styles, sliding easily from one form to another, be it from the lilting and graceful Irish waltz of 'Fanny Power,' to the flowing swing of Fats Waller's 'Honeysuckle Rose,' or from Merle Haggard's country classic 'California Cottonfields' to a string band medley of fiddle tunes. Their work on the bluegrass numbers, which fill half the record, is equally solid. Even without a banjo, the group gets the proper feel. I found Pick 3's arrangements thoughtful and engaging and well-above the average fare. The final things I would praise are the trio's overall relaxed feel and good humor. Those are qualities often lost in the seriousness of the studio but not here, and it makes for better listening. - Bluegrass Unlimited Magazine - March 1998 ----- This bluegrass-inspired trio from the metropolitan New York area exhibits a passion for it's eclectic repertoire. Besides enthusiasm and good taste, the bands adventurous style consistently aims for the tough licks, a trait especially evident in Eaton's guitar playing. - Acoustic Guitar Magazine - September 1998 ----- Tom, your first CD is a first class picking Bluegrass Creation 'aged to perfection'. Best Regards from Brazil and Congratulations to Bob Green, Mark Murphy, and to your Sound Engineer. - Erio Meili President - Sao Paulo Bluegrass Music Association IBMA member - Chair of the South American Bluegrass Network ----- *** WHAT THE DJs SAY About PICK 3's CD *** Thanks for the CD that arrived here today. I have played it once and am over the moon with it! The variety of styles should keep a number of our program presenters asking for it from the station's library. - Tony Nightingale, host of 'Folk's Wagon' Fenland Community Radio, Horncastle, England ----- I must tell you that I like the mix of songs and songwriters you have chosen for this CD. Anyone who can combine Tim O'Brien, Bill Monroe and Bob Wills is all right in my book. - Jim Graves, Host of 'Free Flight' WFSS 91.9 FM Fayetteville, NC ----- Outstanding! Like the vocals, fiddle & picking. Featured Pick 3 on today's program and the response was really good. - Lee Bolton, WOBO Radio Norwood, Ohio ----- What a fine collection of songs; some great music! GREAT! - Dr. David L. Weide, Producer and host of 'Mostly Folk' KUNV FM Las Vegas, Nevada -----.
