Pianist Danny Fox is a deft composer with a well-seasoned trio which features Max Goldman on drums and Chris van Voorst van Beest on bass.
Born and raised in New York City , Danny became immersed in the jazz scene from an early age. In high school, Danny was selected as a Presidential Scholar in the Arts and went on to attend Harvard University during which time he became active in the Boston music scene. He formed the Danny Fox Trio in 2008 as a vehicle for his original compositions and since then the working group has performed steadily around NYC and the US, releasing the critically acclaimed albums The One Constant (Songlines) and Wide Eyed (Hot Cup).
Called a “pianist of diverse accomplishment” (NY Times), Danny has established himself as a versatile musician active in a wide variety of settings, co-founding the New Orleans rock and roll group Tubby, playing around the fertile Brooklyn roots and bluegrass scene, performing on Broadway, and collaborating with the cutting edge video artist Meghan Allynn Johnson. He has performed with artists as diverse as Bruce Springsteen, Cassandra Wilson, Michael Blake, and Kermit Driscoll.
We agree with the way Ben Ratliff of The New York Times recently described the trio’s music:
"...Cool but not modish....These are prepared and worked-out pieces, episodic and detailed; these band members know one another’s moves, but the songs don’t rely on improvised sound and interplay to get over."
