The Joe Policastro Trio is a Chicago-based jazz trio led by bassist Joe Policastro featuring guitarist Dave Miller and drummer Mikel Avery. While firmly rooted in jazz, the band’s open-minded, inclusive nature also brings rock, soul, funk, Brazilian, and free jazz to the surface while keeping the aesthetic of an acoustic jazz trio intact. The band is on a 25+ city tour in support of the release of their third album “Screen Sounds” (JeruJazz Records), an assemblage of movie/TV music re-imagined by the trio. Other releases by the band include 2013’s “West Side Story Suite For Jazz Trio,” and 2016’s “POPS!” (jazz interpretations of pop songs from the ‘60s to the ‘90s), also on JeruJazz Records.
