Danny Green Trio Plus Strings to toast new album with Friday Balboa Park concert
Danny Green is having a banner year.
In March, the resourceful pianist took home Best Jazz Artist honors at the 2018 San Diego Music Awards.
His trio’s current tour includes a Friday evening concert in Balboa Park to celebrate the release of their audacious new chamber-jazz album, “One Day It Will.”
Ten compositions strong, it teams Green, bassist Justin Grinnell and drummer Julien Cantelm with a string quartet that features San Diego Symphony violinists Kate Hatmaker and Igor Pandurski.
How well will the carefully calibrated music on “One Day It Will” translate to the concert stage?
You can find out Friday when Green and his colleagues perform the album live with violinist Isaac Allen, violist Travis Maril and cellist Erika Erenyi.
Danny Green Trio Plus Strings: 8 p.m. Friday. Panama 66 in James S. Copley Auditorium, San Diego Museum of Art, 1450 El Prado, Balboa Park. $15 (general admission), $25 (front row reserved seating). (619) 696-1966. brownpapertickets.com/event/3389519
