JAZZ | Danny Fox Trio


The more you listen to "Wide Eyed," the new album by the Danny Fox Trio, the more you know this is not your average jazz trio. An excellent pianist, Fox is certainly capable of swinging, but he's more interested in exploring the outer edges of the trio form. So a tune might grow from the rhythm of a pencil tapping on a desk or move from one time signature to another. Fox's keyboard technique ranges from impressionistic to minimal. He is well supported in his exploits by Chris van Voorst van Beest on bass and Max Goldman on drums.

The Danny Fox Trio plays Sunday, May 18, at Bop Shop Records, 1460 Monroe Avenue. 8 p.m. $10. 271-3354;;
