Danny Green says
Award-Winning San Diego Pianist/Composer Danny Green Green and his Trio Team Up with Acclaimed Saxophonist Anton Schwartz

“Admirable cohesion...beautiful touch.” – DownBeat Magazine
“Wittily melds jazz, blues, classical, and Brazilian music.” – Boston Globe

Pianist/composer Danny Green and his trio – featuring bassist Justin Grinnell and drummer Julien Cantelm – join with distinguished tenor saxophonist Anton Schwartz while on tour to promote the trio’s latest album Altered Narratives.

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. An award-winning OA2 recording artist, 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, released March 18, 2016 on OA2 Records, 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.

The intricate sounds of Green’s trio easily incorporate the masterful touch of saxophonist Schwartz, who honed his reputation as a passionate but poised improviser and smart purveyor of well-wrought melodies. The group first performed together in March at Tula’s Restaurant and will join again toward the end of October for concerts in California’s Bay Area. Over the past two decades Schwartz has performed at jazz’s most prestigious clubs and festivals, from the Blue Note in New York City and Yoshi’s in Oakland to Washington D.C.’s Blues Alley and the Monterey Jazz Festival. Recent highlights include two sold-out shows at Jazz at Lincoln Center and a feature as soloist with the Boston Pops in Boston Symphony Hall. His latest album, Flash Mob, surged to the sixth spot on the jazz radio charts and earned a coveted four-star review in DownBeat magazine. Schwartz, who relocated to Seattle in 2010, has forged ties with some of jazz’s heaviest hitters, including pianists Russell Ferrante, Randy Porter, and Josh Nelson; guitarists Peter Bernstein, Bruce Forman, and Julian Lage; and vocalists Ed Reed, Jackie Ryan, Denise Donatelli and Rebecca Kilgore.
