Fiona's Comments

Not your usual descent into the underworld. Stylish string arranging, pouncy drums, and emotive piano.

About the Album

“Katabasis” is a track off of award-winning San Diego Pianist/Composer Danny Green’s latest album “Altered Narratives.” His second release on OA2 Records, “Altered Narratives” was produced by Matt Pierson, and features his longtime trio of bassist Justin Grinnell and drummer Julien Cantelm. In “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 melodically charged sensibility.
