Reviews / San Diego CityBeat – Danny Green Trio Expands Jazz Sound With Strings

By Jeff Terich

‘One Day It Will’ is surprisingly intimate

One of the remarkable things about jazz is how elegant it can sound at its most minimalist. When Duke Ellington, Max Roach and Charles Mingus created the legendary Money Jungle in 1963, they made magic with nothing more than piano, bass and drums. And in 2016, pianist Vijay Iyer and trumpeter Wadada Leo Smith created a sparse yet breathtaking set of music with no percussion or additional instrumentation titled A Cosmic Rhythm With Each Stroke, proving there’s still a lot to be explored within such a presumably limited range of sound.
