Thursday night, March 1, the Joe Policastro Trio comes to Alphabet City for a show to highlight their new release "Screen Sounds" (as heard on WZUM).
Bassist Joe Policastro is a native of Cincinnati, Ohio, but has spent the past 15 years in Chicago. He's a much sought after sideman and arranger and composer, too, including a project highlighting the musical legacy of Gerry Mulligan with the Mulligan Mosaics Big Band.
The Trio is a creative, working unit, in residence 3 nights a week in Chicago at the club Pops for Champagne in Chicago, but touring widely, too.
The Joe Policastro Trio features Policastro on bass; Dave Miller, guitar; Mikel Avery, drums and auxiliary percussion. The show at Alphabet City is free, but visit the web site to RSVP.
