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.


"[Fox's] innovative amalgam of Baroque and bebop (with a little bit of Babalu) is unique and utterly commanding."

The Boston Globe



"His playing on the classics is superb, and on the pianissimo of the Dowland his fingers touch the keys with the delicacy of a butterfly alighting on a flower."

The Boston Examiner


"Art Tatum on the right hand; Johanna Sebastian Bach on the left; Donal Fox in the middle."
