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. Touring in support of their new release Screen Sounds (JeruJazz Records), the album features unique interpretations of music from the silver screen to the small screen. Other releases by the band include 2013’s West Side Story Suite For Jazz Trio, and 2016’s POPS! (jazz interpretations of pop tunes from the 60s-90s), also on JeruJazz Records.
