“Casey and his trio showcase everything that’s great about jazz music today with zany bass lines and a towering sax marching along the tracks narrative.”— Josh Mason, Somewhere Soul (UK)
A unique jazz group not only in their musical approach but in instrumentation as well, The Mike Casey Trio features Mike on saxophones, Matt Dwonszyk on acoustic bass, and Corey Garcia on drums – three of the brightest young rising stars in jazz. The absence of guitar or piano, which is typically found in a jazz group, gives the band a very distinctive sound: earthy and accessible, yet mature, refined, exciting, upbeat – and full of surprises. Mike’s recent self-released debut “The Sound of Surprise” has surpassed 500,000 stre...ams worldwide in the first year since its February 2017 release – unheard for a jazz debut without record label backing. Performing modern original music and creative re-imaginations of jazz classics and popular songs from Kanye, Soundgarden, The Beatles, Queen, Daniel Caesar & more with power, passion, and purpose, the Mike Casey Trio appeals to both jazz aficionados and casual music fans.
Recently featured by Spotify as the cover image for its official ‘State of Jazz’ playlist after Brian Blade and before Dr. Lonnie Smith & Chick Corea, Casey and his trio are poised to claim their stake as a household name in jazz and beyond.
Join Mike & trio as they celebrate the release of their second album «Stay Surprising», recorded the same night as «The Sound of Surprise»! The first single «West End» was recently premiered on Downbeat.com and already passed 50,000 streams in less than a month.
