The album received extensive airplay around the globe, rose to #18 on the Jazz Week Charts, and won Best Jazz Album at the 2009 San Diego Music Awards. In 2012, Green teamed up with Tapestry Records to release A Thousand Ways Home, featuring Justin Grinnell on bass, Julien Cantelm on drums, and Tripp Sprague on sax, as well as a talented cast of guest artists inducing guitarists Chico Pinheiro, Peter Sprague, and Dusty Brough, Brazilian vocalist Claudia Villela, and mandolinist Eva Scow.

All About Jazz critic Dan McClenaghan commented, Theres nothing that adds a touch of elegance to a jazz set more than an adeptly-done string arrangement, and these are superb; violins, viola and cello in a sinuous, sometimes whispering embrace with a vibrant, top-notch piano trio, delving into Danny Greens distinguished compositions. The album remained on the Jazz Week Top 50 chart for fourteen weeks and earned high praise from critics worldwide.
