Over the past decade, jazz pianist and Origin Records recording artist Danny Green has earned recognition as a bandleader and as a composer with a gift for spinning supple, absorbing narratives. Green’s growing portfolio of vibrant sounds – an enchanting mix of jazz, classical, and Brazilian rhythms – has captured the attention of critics around the world, including DownBeat Magazine, Jazziz, San Diego Union Tribune, the Boston Globe, and Public Radio International. It’s no small wonder that Green has earned two San Diego Music awards for Best Jazz Album and an additional award for Best Jazz Artist. His long-time trio includes bassist Justin Grinnell and drummer Julien Cantelm, noteworthy musicians in their own right, and together they have developed a nearly psychic connection as they perform Green’s original compositions and jazz standards. Green takes listeners on a journey that is equal parts introspective and exuberant, and always compelling.
Since its formation in 2010, the trio has performed at notable venues, series, and festivals across the county, including the San Jose Jazz Summer Fest, Huntington Arts Summer Fest (Huntington, NY), TEDxSan Diego at Copley Symphony Hall, Rockwood Music Hall (New York City), The Blue Whale (Los Angeles), KSDS Jazz 88.3’s Jazz Live (San Diego), CSU Summer Arts Monterey (residency), the Integrity Jazz (Minot, ND), The Sound Room (Oakland), Tula’s Jazz Club (Seattle), An Die Musik Live! (Baltimore), and Frankie’s Jazz Club (Vancouver).
Edward Gabrielyan will be playing with his friend, musical mentor, and jazz flute icon, Holly Hofmann! Join us for an afternoon of jazz standards in an intimate duo setting.
FREE TO THE PUBLIC
Seating is limited to chairs in room ONLY. Additional parking available at City Hall.
Given four stars by DownBeat Magazine and described by the Examiner as “lustrous in any language – a vocalist who clarifies every note within a hair’s breath,” multi-lingual vocalist Allison Adams Tucker creates a unique musical postcard with jazz-inspired songs that span countries and genres in six languages, from Cole Porter to Tom Jobim, the Beatles to Sting. Allison has come by this concept honestly, having circled the globe multiple times and performing everywhere from Tuscany to Tokyo. Allison began singing at age five in her native San Diego, and traversed everything from country to punk, Elizabethan madrigals to radio jingles, before settling on jazz a decade ago. Allison will be joined by long-time collaborators Danny Green piano, Justin Grinnell bass, and Julien Cantelm drums for an exhilarating and heart-warming concert of music and stories, and a sprinkle of holiday spirit. www.allisonadamstucker.com

For their May 5th, 2019 concert, Robin and Dave will be performing, as a duo, acoustic selections from Joni Mitchell’s earlier albums; Song to a Seagull, Clouds and Ladies of the Canyon.
“Robin and the Mutts don’t just “cover” Mitchell’s music - they inhabit it.” Robert Bush/San Diego Reader
