Joe Policastro Trio (Chicago) at Brothers Drake Meadery & Bar
This Chicago-based jazz trio is currently on a 25+ city tour in support of their new album, "Screen Sounds", the third release by the Joe Policastro Trio. It features the singular approach of the band on a unique assemblage of music from movies and TV. The album features music from films such as Yojimbo, The Godfather, Blade Runner, Midnight Cowboy, and TV shows such as Taxi, The Young and the Restless, and Twin Peaks. Both a musical tapestry and personal soundtrack, the trio has re-purposed these selections blending each member's unique voice into a unified sound while shedding new light on these musical touchstones.
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.
Brothers Drake Meadery & Bar, 26 E 5 Ave
