San Francisco String Trio
The Jazz at the Athenaeum series series presents Bay Area-based artists Mimi Fox on guitar, Jeff Denson on bass and vocals, and Mads Tolling on violin. Denson is familiar to Athenaeum audiences from his past appearances with Parisian guitarist Romain Pilon and Brian Blade, with Lee Konitz, and with the multinational Minsarah Trio. He is joined in the San Francisco String trio by two-time Grammy winner Tolling and six-time DownBeat International Critics Poll winner Fox, who come together to create an eclectic, riveting mixture of beautiful and passionate music. Crossing every genre from tango to funk, gorgeous ballads to sizzling up-tempo originals, the San Francisco String Trio provides its audiences with a special musical experience that is both poignant and compelling.
