A rising creative force on the Southern California jazz scene, San Diego pianist/composer Danny Green
has distinguished himself with his beautifully articulated touch and deep affinity for combining elements of jazz, Brazilian, and classical music. Green’s stellar trio, which includes bassist Justin Grinnell and drummer Julien Cantelm, performs Green’s original compositions, jazz standards, and Brazilian classics. Green’s group has twice received “Best Jazz Album” at the San Diego Music Awards and nominated Album of the Year. Their latest album, Altered Narratives, remained on the Jazz Week Top 50 chart for 15 weeks and was selected as one of the “Top 30 New Releases” by Pubic Radio International’s “Jazz After Hours” program.
Green’s music engages listeners around the world with evocative melodies and infectious rhythms. According to AllAboutJazz.com, Danny Green is “a writer of gorgeous and engaging tunes, and a first rate pianist leading a distinctively interactive trio.”
The trio formed the core band on Green’s highly acclaimed 2012 release, A Thousand Ways Home. Joined by world class jazz artists including Chico Pinheiro, Claudia Villela and Peter Sprague, the album received numerous rave reviews nationwide, rose to #17 on the Jazz Week Charts, and was voted into KSDS Jazz 88.3’s “Top Ten Jazz Releases of 2012.” In 2014, the Danny Green Trio released the highly-acclaimed album After The Calm on OA2 Records. Featuring ten of Green’s compositions, the album received much praise from the press and nationwide radio play. JazzWax described the album as “A highly impressive album that will knock you out,” and the San Diego Troubadour called it, “Unconditionally recommended to anyone who appreciates good jazz, instrumental music or soundtracks.”
