    Pamela Hines has been a prolific and consistent presence in American jazz as a pianist and composer. She has received national and international critical acclaim for edgy instrumental compositions that contribute to the jazz history and art of the trio, quartet and quintet and for jazz originals for vocalists that are more at home in the American Songbook. Hines has played or recorded with many of today's jazz greats including Jerry Bergonzi, Jeff Galindo, Darren Barrett, Grace Kelly, John Lockwood, Bob Moses, Jaque Swarz- Bart and Bob Gullotti. She has been on numerous recordings with vocalists, both for her own nationally acclaimed originals and for standards.
    New release! "3.2.1." features a trio of Hines, Dave Clark (b) and Yoron Israel (d). The trio gets right into high energy percussive interaction with "34 Skidoo" by Bill Evans. The set continues into exciting trio and duo tunes then ends with a solo ballad.
    Dan McClenaghan says in All About Jazz, February, 2013," Pianist Pamela Hines has been busy on the jazz scene for fifteen years, producing many excellent CDs featuring her quartets and quintets, as well as pairings with several top-notch vocalists. A first-rate composer of engaging and memorable tunes who put out one of the coolest Christmas albums, New Christmas...3.2.1, a superb, mostly trio affair...Most of Hines' recordings, including New Christmas, have relied heavily on her own compositions. 3.2.1. takes a different tack, leaning on standards with an emphasis on material by pianist Bill Evans, starting right off with his "34 Skiddoo." Here, however, Hines and trio mates David Clark(bass) and Yoron Israel (drums) sound feistier—happier, even—than the normally introspective Evans.
    On "B Minor Waltz," the trio cools things off a bit, showcasing Hines' exquisite touch and Israel's supple brush work, but the bounce in the trio's step is still there, riding Clark's warm heartbeat. The classic "East of the Sun" takes things out on the edge, an up-tempo high-wire roll, with Hines sounding particularly caffeinated."
