"...one of the most engaging jazz recordings, or any type of recording for that matter, that I’ve heard in recent years." - San Diego Troubadour
Danny Green reaches new creative heights on this, his fourth recording as a leader (second for OA2 Records). Recorded over several days at New York's famed Sear Sound with master producer Matt Pierson, Danny brings together his five year-old trio, along with a string quartet, to interpret eleven new highly personal compositions, each shaped by elements of his life’s narrative - feelings of warmth or nostalgia, the experience of a harried moment, or simply the convergence of a time and a place. "The Danny Green Trio continues to show exponential growth and Green is a talent that is as technically gifted as he is artistically brilliant." - Bop-N-Jazz.
Pianist and composer Danny Green has garnered a reputation in the jazz community as an emerging artist whose music sounds simultaneously seasoned and fresh. Showcasing a brilliant blend of jazz, Brazilian, Latin, and classical elements, Green's music engages listeners with evocative melodies and infectious rhythms. According to JazzReview.com, "Danny Green is what evolution in jazz is all about, expressing the traits of those that came before him, with a style and panache that is all his own--an individual who expresses what is inside of him." 

The Danny Green Trio, comprised of Green, Grinnell, and Cantelm, released their album entitled After The Calm on OA2 Records in November 2014. Featuring ten of Green's compositions, the album won the 2015 award for Best Jazz Album at the San Diego Music Awards. 

Green is also highly devoted to music education. In addition to teaching private lessons, he is a faculty member of the annual Jazz 88.3 Summer Jazz Workshop, directs the jazz combo at Coronado School of the Arts, and presents a jazz appreciation workshop at elementary schools as part of the Athenaeum Music and Arts Library's outreach program. Green has also taught piano courses at Grossmont Community College and San Diego City College, and has been an artist in residence at Canyon Crest Academy and at CSU Summer Arts Monterey. - See more at: http://originarts.com/oa2/artists/artist.php?Artist_ID=130#sthash.bmj9xW1B.dpuf
