--5:00pm and 7:00pm-- Joe Policastro Trio
Start Date/Time: Friday, December 14, 2018 4:30 PM
Description:
    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, pop, old-school funk, soul, Brazilian, and free improvisation to the surface while still keeping the aesthetic of an acoustic trio intact.

Known for its eclectic taste and approach, the Joe Policastro Trio “makes the case that such musical hybridity is worth celebrating.”  “Policastro…is a melody-minded bassist who prioritizes group cohesion over individual displays of virtuosity.”  (Brian Zimmerman, Downbeat)

True bands are a rarity in jazz these days, especially ones who hone their craft as consistently as this one does.  Beyond Chicago, the band has been extensively playing together throughout the US and Canada having even performed for President Barack Obama in October of 2016.  As sidemen, Joe Policastro (Phil Woods, Howard Alden, Pat and Debby Boone, Jeff Hamilton, Diane Schuur), Dave Miller (Clarice Assad, Patricia Barber, Algernon), and Mikel Avery (Joshua Abrams, Theaster Gates, Rob Mazurek) have performed and recorded with a wide array of musicians but dedicate collectively to this trio.

Showtimes:  5pm-6:30pm & 7pm-8:30pm
