2018 Best Jazz Artist, San Diego Music Awards
Jazz pianist Danny Green has earned recognition as a bandleader and as a composer with a gift for spinning supple, absorbing narratives. Green’s growing portfolio of vibrant sounds – an 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 received Best Jazz Album and Best Jazz Artist by the San Diego Music Awards.
In an enchanting twist on jazz repertoire, Green partners his seasoned trio with local string ensembles, taking listeners on a journey that is equal parts introspective and exuberant. Debuting in New York City at Shapeshifter Lab, Green’s Trio Plus Strings has performed at the Museum of Making Music, the KSDS Jazz88.3’s Jazz Live series, and was the featured entertainment at TEDxSanDiego at Copley Symphony Hall. Green debuts his Trio Plus Strings in Baltimore at An Die Musik, the first stop on his East Coast tour to celebrate his latest album, One Day It Will.
