About: Over the past decade, Danny Green has earned recognition as a bandleader possessing a lyrically charged vision and as a composer with a gift for spinning supple, absorbing narratives. The San Diego pianist’s storytelling goes deeper than ever with his fifth album 'One Day It Will.' Building on his acclaimed 2016 album 'Altered Narratives,' which included several tracks pairing his longtime trio with strings, 'One Day It Will' is a full chamber jazz melding of his working band and a highly responsive string quartet. Green’s growing portfolio of vibrant sounds – a mix of jazz, classical, and Brazilian rhythms – has captured the attention of critics around the world, including DownBeat, Jazziz, Public Radio International, and The Boston Globe. His trio includes bassist Justin Grinnell and drummer Julien Cantelm, noteworthy musicians in their own right, and together they have developed a nearly psychic connection. They have honed their craft as featured artists at the San Jose Jazz Festival, TEDxSanDiego, the Blue Whale, and other prominent venues across the country and internationally.
Winner of the 2018 award for Best Jazz Artist at the San Diego Music Awards, Green celebrates his new release One Day It Will, which All About Jazz describes as "brimming with unabashed grace, elegance and forthright beauty." Green takes listeners on a journey that is equal parts introspective and exuberant, and always compelling.
