JAZZ | Joe Policastro Trio


The Joe Policastro Trio has all of the ingredients of a typical jazz trio, with Policastro on bass, Dave Miller on guitar, and Mikel Patrick Avery, drums. But this Chicago-based outfit has a sound all its own. Each musician is a phenomenal player capable of reinventing his instrument and expanding its horizons. Even the repertoire is nicely crazy, with songs no jazz group in its right mind would touch, like the Bee Gees' "More Than a Woman." And they even make that sound great.

Joe Policastro Trio plays Monday, November 27, at Bop Shop Records, 1460 Monroe Avenue. 8 p.m. $15 donation; $10 students. 271-3354;;
