Mike Casey Trio
Mike Casey is a melody architect. The story-telling saxophonist, songwriter, producer, and sonic alchemist is a multi-talented force whose soul stirring saxophone sound and inventive use of phrasing reaches out with love and embraces your musical desires, one note at a time.
A unique group not only in their approach but in instrumentation, the NYC based Mike Casey Trio is one of the hottest rising young bands in jazz today. The absence of guitar/piano allows the band a rare sound: earthy & accessible, yet mature, mysterious, upbeat - full of surprises. On a mission to be a passionate vessel for “jazz” in the 21st century, this band demands the audiences’ attention with its searing, eclectic, powerful sound – whether bringing down the house with funky, adventurous originals or blowing the minds of listeners with genre-bending re-imaginations of songs The Beatles, Soundgarden, Queen, Daniel Caesar, & more.
Garnering nearly 3 million streams worldwide, Mike has been featured by The Huffington Post, Forbes, Music Ally, cover of Spotify’s largest jazz playlist “State of Jazz”, NetEase China, Evernote, Downbeat, Jazz in Europe, Amazon Music, Connecticut Magazine, Entrepeneur Magazine, Live for Live Music, jazz icon Sonny Rollins’s social media (the pioneer of the sax/bass/drums format), & much more.
