"Jazz Jackhammers at UCSD," by Robert Bush, NBC San Diego (June 2014)
Two very different trios graced the stage at UC San Diego's Loft on June 4 [2014] ... The Danny Green Trio opened the show with intricate and highly arranged original music ... on the opening tune, "6:00 A.M.," the precise interplay between Justin Grinnell's percolating electric bass lines and Julien Cantelm's soft percussion dovetailed tightly with the leader's melodically driven improvisations.
