Celebrating New album “Stay Surprising” & one of Mike’s last tour dates before he leaves! “BRB USA Tour”

“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 streams 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 pop songs like Norwegian Wood and We Are The Champions 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.”
