3-Note Jazz Chord voicings

Using 3-note jazz chord voicings is useful because you have a lot of control and choices available when it comes to the sound you want to get across. The 3-note chords are also easier to play and connect so that you can focus on interacting with the band and making a melodic statement with the top-notes.

Only having three voices to move also helps in building a chord vocabulary of chords and is also a very good place to start if you want to learn the basics you need to start working with more advanced voice-leading like inner-voice movement.
