Casey has been busy over the last year, not only working on producing the album (crowd-funded) but teaching, playing with the Trio and working with other ensembles. I like the fact that his debut is a live album, the Trio did not try for perfection in the studio, opting instead to illustrate how a "live" show gives a truer representation of a working group.
The Mike Casey Trio hits the stage at 8:30 p.m. For tickets to the show and more, go to thesidedoorjazz.com. To learn more about Mr. Casey and get links to purchase the album, go to www.mikecaseyjazz.com.
