In support of their newest recording, Screen Sounds, the Joe Policastro Trio is performing a multimedia show at Studio 5 Performing Arts Center, 1934 Dempster St. at 8 p.m. on Friday, Oct. 6.
Their third album features the singular approach of the Chicago-based jazz trio on a unique assemblage of music from movies and TV. For this performance, the group is presenting the music in a mutlimedia format with an experimental film and original lighting design.
In addition to Policastro on bass, the trio includes Dave Miller on guitar and Mikel Patrick Avery on drums.
“Screen Sounds” is both a musical tapestry and personal soundtrack featuring muisc from the silver screen to the small screen (The Godfather, The Young and The Restless, Cool Hand Luke, Taxi, Midnight Cowboy, The Kids In The Hall, etc.). 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.
