Danny Fox Trio at Chez Hanny
Formed in 2008, the NYC-based Danny Fox Trio is a true working band, hailed for reinventing the classic piano trio format with genre-defying, uniquely personal original music. Whether holed up in a Queens 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 a modern Ahmad Jamal Trio, 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.
