The Mikey Smith trio blends jazz styles with contemporary classical, rock, and electronic aesthetics. Their repertoire includes pieces by composers as varied as Thelonius Monk, Phillip Glass, the Beatles, and the White Stripes, in addition to their exciting original material. The trio places great importance upon engaging their audiences, and their performances are always highly energetic, yet sensitive and dynamic, incorporating group improvisation, extended techniques, and trancey minimal jams. Listeners often report finding a new-found appreciation for the jazz art form after experiencing a Mikey Smith Trio performance.http://dazzlejazz.ticketfly.com/event/1523520/
