Hailed by Downbeat for its “deft analysis of choice repertoire,” and by The Chicago Reader for its “diversity of approaches to all kinds of source material,” this Chicago-based alternative jazz trio is led by bassist Joe Policastro and features 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.
The band is touring in support of its fourth album, "Nothing Here Belongs." The new release follows in the wake of "West Side Story Suite" (2013), "POPS!" (2016) and "Screen Sounds" (2017), all of which highlighted the trio’s ability to remake unlikely songs in its own raw, highly idiosyncratic fashion. "Nothing Here Belongs," by contrast, for the first time showcases the trio’s captivating body of original music while also including characteristically bold arrangements of songs by Bruce Springsteen, The Talking Heads and Santo & Johnny.
