Now's the Time: The Joe Policastro Trio
Few developments on the Midwestern jazz scene would be more welcome than an ongoing exchange of musicians between Chicago and Kansas City. The appearances of the Chicago based Joe Policastro Trio at Black Dolphin on Friday, May 4, and at the Reserve Restaurant & Lounge at the Ambassador Hotel on Saturday, May 5, are a promising step in that direction. The guitarist’s group interprets the theme song of Akira Kurosawa’s 1961 film in the embedded video. The Kansas City Jazz Calendar lists more than 75 additional gigs this weekend.
