Audio Interview
Donal Fox on WGBH | The Calllie Crossley Show

Donal Fox is an acclaimed, innovative composer and pianist, and an MLK Visiting Scholar and Assistant Professor in MIT's School of Humanities, Arts, and Social Sciences.  Inspired by Bach, Monk, Schumann, Piazzolla, Scarlatti, Coltrane and others, Fox has forged a unique amalgam of jazz, Latin American, and classical music.  His virtuosic, swinging style is at once poetic and hip, and of his music, Jazz Hot has written, "Fox's music is unlike that of anyone else, while at the same time it evokes McCoy Tyner, Art Tatum, the intensity of Coltrane and of the blues, shades of Bach and Cuban music.”
