If you’re unfamiliar with Danny Green, you’re in for a huge treat. On A Thousand Ways Home (Tapestry), the pianist composed and arranged all of the album’s tracks, and the results are sensational. For example, on the bossa Unwind, his piano’s notes are mirrored by Eva Scow on mandolin. On Quintal da Solidão, Claudia Villela joins with a Portuguese vocal. On Back to Work, another bossa, Tripp Sprague is featured on soprano saxophone. A love letter to Brazilian music written with jazz ink.
