“Richly engaging and utterly brilliant…a musical mind of rare sensitivity and vigor” – CD Hotlist
Southern California jazz pianist Danny Green returns with his trio to the Lilypad, where they packed the house in 2016. Green has earned recognition as a bandleader and as a composer with a gift for spinning supple, absorbing narratives. His enchanting mix of jazz, classical, and Brazilian rhythms has captured the attention of critics around the world, including DownBeat Magazine, Jazziz, the Boston Globe, and Public Radio International.
It’s no wonder that Green, an Origin Records recording artist, has earned two San Diego Music awards for Best Jazz Album. 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 Green’s original tunes and jazz standards. Green takes listeners on a journey that is equal parts introspective and exuberant, and always compelling.
