Danny Fox Trio

The Danny Fox Trio plays exciting 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. The group, which features pianist Danny Fox, bassist Chris van Voorst, and drummer Max Goldman recently released their debut recording “The One Constant” on Songlines Recordings. Can Be purchased on Itunes or by going to Songlines’ website.  The trio’s second record “Wide Eyed” (Hot Cup Records) can be purchased on Vinyl, CD, or digitally by visiting CD Baby.

“…changing the sound and expectation of a jazz piano trio”
John Schaefer WNYC’s New Sounds

“A pianist of diverse accomplishment”
Nate Chinen The New York Times

“accessible yet heady…the dark tones of the album work well in contrast with the energetic playing of the musicians”
-Justin Cober, Lake Pop Matters

“The One Constant is an excellent debut from an American trio with bold, expressive ideas. The Danny Fox Trio might be one of those under-the-radar groups that you better get to know quickly because we may be talking about them for a long time to come.”
-JazzWrap

“The program is filled with moments like that, places in the songs that don’t conform to any formula but the creative ideas of the trio…this is music that feels ‘live’ and ‘alive.”
-Richard Kamins, Step Tempest

“Fox’s music is decidedly cerebral, but that’s not to say it’s without soul..a very engaging listening experience.”
-Jack Walton,South Bend Tribune
