Music / LP And The Vinyl – Heard And Seen

“From tight arrangements to free-wheeling improvisations, this telepathic trio evolves into an equally intercommunicating quartet with Leonard Patton. If there is a group worthy of special attention and reintroduction in Jazz, it is LP and the Vinyl.”
–Travis Rogers, Jr., The Jazz Owl

Along with renowned jazz, blues and gospel singer Leonard Patton, the critically acclaimed San Diego-based Danny Green Trio take on the moniker LP and the Vinyl to explore and reimagine the songs of pop greats, jazz standards and their own originals. Songs like David Bowie’s “Life on Mars,” The Beatles’ “Fool on the Hill,” and Oasis’ “Wonderwall,” take on new life with captivating arrangements and free-flowing improvisation, while “Softly, As In A Morning Sunrise” and “My One And Only Love” receive modern rhythmic updates. Green offers his own “The Lonely Band” – with lyrics by Patton, and “Night Waltz,” contributing the newest works to this collection covering nearly 100 years of American popular song. With Patton’s infectious charisma, the extraordinary interplay between Green, bassist Justin Grinnell, and drummer Julien Cantelm, and the band’s search for new routes through known music, LP and the Vinyl’s riveting appeal makes “Heard and Seen” a compelling and fun listen.
