Danny Fox Trio (jazz)

The NYC-based Danny Fox Trio plays genre-defying original music with dynamic group interplay. Almost a mix between a jazz trio, a chamber ensemble, and a rock group, the trio has developed a unique sound that departs from traditional jazz piano format and uses the roles of the instruments creatively. The music draws from eclectic influences: the quirky rhythms of a Thelonious Monk tune, the dark harmonies of Scriabin, the funkiness of a Motown bassline, or the catchiness of a Beatles tune.
