Based in New York City, the Danny Fox Trio plays original, eclectic compositions with dynamic group interplay and interaction. Almost a mix between a jazz trio, a chamber ensemble, and a rock group, this trio has developed a unique sound that departs from traditional jazz piano format and uses the roles of the instruments creatively. Fox’s music draws from wide influences: the quirky rhythms of a Monk tune, the dark harmonies of Scriabin or ethereal chords of Messiaen, the funkiness of a Motown bassline, or the catchiness of a Beatles tune. Through regular rehearsals and performances, the band has forged a strong musical identity that continues to evolve. They have performed around the New York City area at venues such as Smalls Jazz Club, Iridium, and Rockwood Music Hall, and have held weekly residencies at both the 92nd Street Y Tribeca and Caffe Vivaldi. Their recently completed debut recording will be released in the Fall of 2010.
