...richly engaging and utterly brilliant...
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.
