Mushroom Jazz 3 is very good, but not as good as MJ2 and 4 which are real masterpieces.
In contrary to volume 5, the soul of Mushroom Jazz is there, with this particular "classy urban ambiance". Excellent track selection as always, but there's a track which does not flow with others in my opinion : Herb Alpert - Flirtation. It's raw jazz, it's not "filtered" and "minimalist" like the other jazzy tracks used in Mushroom Jazz (just remember Pepe Bradock - Un Pepe Dans La Dentelle, in Mushroom Jazz 2, or Fat Jon - No, in Mushroom Jazz 4)
The flow of the album is not perfect but it goes in a right and coherent direction (again, not like MJ 5...really disappointed with this one).
And of course, the excellent voice collage through the mix makes it marvellous and unique...

Favourite tracks : 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 8, 12, 18 (but difficult to tell you really because the mixing is so good that this mix is like one big track of 72 minutes)

Buy it people, you won't be disappointed! Mushroom Jazz 3 is a perfect interlude between the two masterpieces MJ2 and MJ4...
