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.

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
