Award-winning pianist/composer Danny Green and his trio – featuring bassist Justin Grinnell and drummer Julien Cantelm – return to the Bay Area to promote the trio’s latest album Altered Narratives. This the third time the Trio will perform at the Red Poppy Art House - get there early because this band packs every one of the venue's 50 seats.
A rising force on the jazz scene, Southern California pianist and composer Green has distinguished himself with his beautifully articulated touch and melodically charged sensibility. Green’s growing portfolio of vibrant sounds has captured the attention of critics and audiences from coast to coast. His talents have taken him from the Blue Note in New York City to the Blue Whale in Los Angeles, and his work has been featured in the San Diego Union Tribune, the Boston Globe, DownBeat Magazine, and Jazziz, to name a few. On his fourth album Altered Narratives, Green’s stellar trio explores a panoply of moods and grooves, sublimating Brazilian influences in favor of blues, swing and European classical influences. It’s the work of a manifestly gifted composer who has honed a bespoke group sound ideally suited for his complex and invigorating melodies.
