Invention Trio

Donal Fox and his Inventions Trio tackle both jazz and baroque repertoire with visionary takes on Scarlatti, Bach, Monk, Coltrane, Coleman and more. Internationally acclaimed as a composer, pianist, and improviser, Fox expertly fuses jazz, Afro-Latin and classical idioms into intricate new works and electrifying performances. Praised by The Boston Globe as "unique and utterly commanding," Fox de- and reconstructs Bach, Piazzolla, Schumann, Monk, Schoenberg and more, adding propulsive grooves and using composed themes as springboards for glorious improvisational flights that blend baroque with bebop, twelve-tone techniques with twelve-bar blues.

Innovations Quartet

"Groundbreaking pianist, composer, and improviser Fox's music uncompromisingly melds Monk, Bach, and Afro-Cuban jazz with the poise of the Modern Jazz Quartet and the power of the John Coltrane Quartet.” (Boston Globe)

Combining deep grooves with sophisticated contrapuntal lines, he and his quartet create a striking musical collage that is at once stirring, visceral, imaginative and intellectually satisfying. Fox mines the rich resources of jazz and classical literature, crafting an expanding repertoire of original compositions seamlessly wedded to the undeniable pulse of Afro-Cuban jazz. His inventive blend marches boldly toward new sounds, effortlessly “confounding the genre police.” (DownBeat)
