With One Day It Will , the composer and pianist Danny Green continues, successfully, his progressive exploration of new forms of fusion between jazz and classical music incorporating a string quartet to his group.
Examined with the perspective that the years allow, the musical career of Danny Green offers the listener a logical and progressive evolution, in which each piece, each album of the sound puzzle of his career makes sense with respect to the previous ones. With You In My Mind (2009), solo cover letter from the Californian pianist and composer, establishes the basis of a style in which the mix of genres, jazz, classical music and Brazilian and Cuban influences, and the lyric of positive tone and Dreamer attached to the standards, without major transgressions , have been the main keys of his work so far.
From there, and with the same continuity attitude, Green has consolidated his proposal adding troops in a gradual way: in his second album, A Thousand Ways Home (2012), where the fusion of genres is more than patent, it is already accompanied of his future bandmates, Justin Grinnell on double bass and Julien Cantelm on drums; from now on, he formally presents the Danny Green Trio with After The Calm (2014) and Altered Narratives (2016), a work, the latter of great maturity, with which the trio obtains success at the San Diego Jazz Awards and Danny Green It definitely consolidates its presence and name in the international music scene. In this last album it was already, Second Chance and Katabasis by more signs, the germ of its following launching: the annexation of a string quartet to the original trio.
Thus, two years per album, we reach 2018, the Danny Green Trio Plus Strings line-up and its One Day It Will , the natural result of this evolution. Ten tracks, all created by Danny Green, make up the most ambitious compact of the pianist so far. The juxtaposition of groupings and, however, the voices of the most recurrent ensembles of both genres, jazz , with the trio of piano, double bass and percussion, and classical music, with the string quartet, two violins, is not easy. viola and violoncello, not only are they perfectly connected, but they are also capable of offering dialogue of great timbral richness.
