Jazz Jam Sessions continues with the Danny Green Trio making their debut at the California Center for the Arts, Escondido!
A rising force on the jazz scene and an award-winning Origin Records recording artist, pianist and composer Danny Green has distinguished himself with his beautifully articulated touch and melodically charged sensibility.
The Danny Green Trio features the talents of upright and electric bassist Justin Grinnell and drummer Julien Cantelm.
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, Shapeshifter Lab (NYC), The Blue Whale (LA), The Lilypad (Cambridge), and Tula’s Jazz Club (Seattle).
Their work has been featured in DownBeat Magazine, Jazziz, the San Diego Union Tribune, The Boston Globe, NPR, and JazzEd.
Before Jazz Jam Sessions, come visit our newest exhibition in the Center Museum, American Watercolor Society: 151st International Exhibition and Local Color. The American Watercolor Society (AWS) is a nonprofit membership organization that began in 1866 to promote the art of water media. Each year the AWS holds a juried exhibition that draws thousands of entries from artists throughout the world. The top selections are included in a traveling exhibition, touring museums and galleries nationwide. This exhibition includes portraiture, landscape, still life, abstract imagery and more.
Exhibiting concurrently is Local Color. Escondido artist and curator, Linda Doll, has brought together ten of our local signature member level artists from the American Watercolor Society and National Watercolor Society. Each watercolorist, working within their own style and theme, were asked to create new works for display and sale in this exciting exhibition.
The Museum is open to the public and free from 5 to 7pm prior to Food Truck Fridays, Jazz Jam Sessions, and most other center–presented performances.
