The Joe Policastro Trio will visit Buffalo’s landmark urban resort from the windy city of Chicago while on tour. The trio is led by bassist Joe Policastro (sideman for Phil Woods, Diane Schuur, and Jeff Hamilton) 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, and Brazilian jazz to the surface while keeping the aesthetic of an acoustic jazz trio intact. Their third album, Screen Sounds (JeruJazz Records, August 11, 2017), is an assemblage of movie/TV music reimagined by the trio. Previous uniquely arranged album concepts included Pops!, a collection of arranged pop hits, and West Side Story, an intricately produced album of jazz arrangements scored to this iconic Broadway musical. The band takes aim at uniquely arranging familiar tunes into artistic jazz arrangements and hits the mark to the rave review of critics.
