Danny Green Trio - Biography
Over the past decade, jazz pianist and Origin Records recording artist Danny Green has earned recognition as a bandleader and as a composer with a gift for spinning supple, absorbing narratives. Greens growing portfolio of vibrant sounds an enchanting mix of jazz, classical, and Brazilian rhythms has captured the attention of critics around the world, including DownBeat Magazine, Jazziz, San Diego Union Tribune, the Boston Globe, and Public Radio International. Its no small wonder that Green has earned two San Diego Music awards for Best Jazz Album and an additional award for Best Jazz Artist. His long-time trio includes bassist Justin Grinnell and drummer Julien Cantelm, noteworthy musicians in their own right, and together they have developed a nearly psychic connection as they perform Greens original compositions and jazz standards. Green takes listeners on a journey that is equal parts introspective and exuberant, and always compelling.
Since its formation in 2010, the trio has performed at notable venues, series, and festivals across the county, including the San Jose Jazz Summer Fest, Huntington Arts Summer Fest (Huntington, NY), TEDxSan Diego at Copley Symphony Hall, Rockwood Music Hall (New York City), The Blue Whale (Los Angeles), KSDS Jazz 88.3s Jazz Live (San Diego), CSU Summer Arts Monterey (residency), the Integrity Jazz (Minot, ND), The Sound Room (Oakland), Tulas Jazz Club (Seattle), An Die Musik Live! (Baltimore), and Frankies Jazz Club (Vancouver).
The trio formed the core band on Greens 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 88.3s 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 Greens 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. After The Calm won Best Jazz Album at the 2015 San Diego Music Awards and was nominated for Album of the Year.
The trio recorded their 2016 release, Altered Narratives, at New York Citys famed Sear Sound recording studio with award-winning producer Matt Pierson. Released on Origin/OA2 Records, the album consists of eleven original compositions by Green. The three tunes at the center of the album feature the trio with a string quartet led by violinist Antoine Silverman, a widely admired New York classical and studio player. 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.
The Danny Green Trio Plus Strings released its first full length album, One Day It Will, in 2018. The album features San Diego Symphony violinists Kate Hatmaker and Igor Pandurski, violist Travis Maril, and cellist Erica Erenyi. One Day It Will was featured in DownBeat Magazine, Jazz Weekly (selected as Ringer of the Week), CD Hotlist (selected as Pick of the Month), The New York City Jazz Record, Mercury News, and Long Islander News, among many other press outlets. Jazz da Gama called the album, one to die for. The album remained on the Jazz Week Top 50 charts for five weeks and was featured multiple times on Public Radio Internationals nationally syndicated Jazz After Hours.
Green has brought his Trio Plus Strings to venues throughout the United States. The group debuted in 2016 at New York Citys Shapeshifter Lab, and since then has maintained a steady performance schedule. The Danny Green Trio Plus Strings was selected to perform at the prestigious Western Arts Alliance Juried Showcase in 2017.
