  • Joe Turner Lin
  • Danny Fox Trio

New York pianist Danny Fox brings his nimble trio to Chicago for the first time on Sunday, performing at the Hungry Brain. Fox is largely a self-taught musician, and while attending Harvard he earned a degree in psychology. But when he moved back to New York after graduating magna cum laude, he turned his energy back toward music, studying with classical pianist John Kamitsuka as well as with Ethan Iverson of the Bad Plus. Those two musicians figure heavily in the sound Fox forged on his trio’s 2011 album The One Constant (Songlines).
