The Danny Fox Trio has been hailed for reinventing the classic piano trio format with genre-defying, uniquely personal original music. Whether holed up in a Brooklyn basement rehearsing or touring around the country crammed into a sedan, the trio has spent countless hours developing a rapport that's immediately palpable in their music. Described as "cool but not modish" (New York Times), the band mixes tight ensemble playing with highly interactive, attuned improvisation. Drawing on influences as varied as Ellington, Bartok, and The Meters, the music can switch gears at any moment yet remains cohesive thanks to strong motivic development and rigorous arrangements that challenge the traditional roles of the piano trio instruments. The trio has received critical acclaim for their albums "The One Constant" and "Wide Eyed", and has recently their third album "The Great Nostalgist".
