"Danny Green Trio: After the Calm" by Paul Hormick, San Diego Troubadour (Apr 2015)
The Danny Green Trio ... CD, After the Calm ... is one of the most engaging jazz recordings, or any type of recording for that matter, that Iíve heard in recent years. ... I was absolutely drawn in by this dynamic and fresh music by these three talented musicians. The trio is Danny Green on piano ó he also composed all ten of the tunes on the disk ó Justin Grinnell on bass and Julien Cantelm on drums. From the ease and confidence of their interplay, it is obvious that these three young men have performed together for some time. ... Grinnell is both solid and lively, a difficult but essential dual function that bassists need to fill when they play in jazz trio configurations. ... His lines are inventive and original ... This new disk gets my vote as one of the best local jazz recordings to come out in this last year. A great big two thumbs up for After the Calm.

"Top SD Jazz Records of 2014" by Robert Bush, NBC San Diego (Jan 2015)
San Diego jazz musicians made some excellent recordings in 2014 ... "After the Calm," by the Danny Green Trio: When it comes to straight-up, balls-out virtuosity, the Green Trio is hard to beat. This album is a must for folks who dig supertight interplay. Bassist Justin Grinnell and drummer Julien Cantelm are a monster rhythm section.
