Joe Policastro's POPS! Trio is famed for their standing gig at Chicago's venerable Pops For Champagne club, where their jazz-based, open-minded explorations of rock, old-school funk, Brazilian, and free jazz are legendary.
“Policastro and his trio incorporate all of these elements, creating a jazz sound that is truly their own.”
– Valery Amador (Bass Musician Magazine)
"POPS! is a tribute to Policastro’s favorite musicians from across many styles. This suave and enjoyable album should have wide appeal among both jazz fans and listeners of other genres."
– Hrayr Attarian (ChicagoJazz.com)
