“In 1979 we recorded the single In Remembrance and in 1980 released our first album Gettin’ It Together. Three members of Third Stream organized and produced Just Friends and Just Friends Again, two 1982 record albums featuring the talents of eight Central Pennsylvania jazz musicians. We released our first CD Black Widow in 1989. Our latest recording is a Christmas CD entitled We Free Kings II which was released in 2004. Selected original Third Stream tunes are currently available for download from Amazon.com and itunes. Subscribers to Rhapsody can also enjoy our music on a monthly subscription plan or as downloadable files. The quartet continues to bring quality music to their audiences through concerts, clinics, parties, wedding receptions and lectures. Third Stream has stood the test of time and is here to stay.”

“Reviewing a Herbie Hancock concert, Lancaster, PA writer Michael Kushner said, "Preceding Herbie Hancock on the bill, Third Stream’s reception by the crowd was just short of fantastic. Hancock praised the Central Pennsylvania group between his first two numbers, drawing cheers from the audience". Writing about another performance, Dick Sassaman, music editor of the Harrisburg Independent Press said, "Third Stream recently played at the first half of the highly successful concert with Brazilian arranger/pianist Eumir Deodato at Penn State University. As far as jazz was concerned, Third Stream scored a clear cut victory."”
