JAZZ | Joe Policastro Trio 

No one bridges the worlds of pop and jazz better than the Joe Policastro Trio. According to Policastro, the band plays music for listeners who are "jazz-curious." Its repertoire couldn't be more eclectic: Prince's "1999," Neil Young's "Harvest Moon," "America," from Leonard Bernstein's "West Side Story," the theme music from "Twin Peaks," and more. The tunes are totally recognizable, but they are also revealed to be prime vehicles for improvisation. The musicians – Policastro on bass; guitarist Dave Miller, and Mikel Patrick Avery on drums – stretch the classic jazz trio into shapes you've never imagined.

Joe Policastro Trio plays Monday, November 12, 8 p.m. at Bop Shop Records, 1460 Monroe Avenue, $10-15. 271-3354. bopshop.com; thejptrio.com.
