3rd Force is a smooth jazz band consisting of William Aura, Craig Dobbin, and Alain Eskinasi.[1]

The band's eponymous first album was released in 1994.[2] It was followed by others with "Force" in the title.[2] "3rd Force is considerably more eclectic than most artists who fit into smooth jazz radio formats; in fact, their work often straddles the line between smooth jazz and dance-heavy, electronic-tinged acid jazz, sometimes incorporating ethnic influences as well."[2]
