Born on March 17, 1979 in Camden, NJ, Rodney Green is a "natural drummer”. His father being a minister and an organist, he learned to play drums at the church, where he spent most of his time during his childhood. As a self-taught drummer, he forged his own style far from music schools and university programs, listening to records and then completing his training at 15 on stage with some of the best musicians of Philadelphia. Shortly after that, Bobby Watson hired him for a tour in Italy. At 17, while he was still in high school, Rodney Green had regularly gigs in New York and abroad. After his graduation, he moved to New York and soon played and recorded with Greg Osby, Christian McBride, Eric Reed, Joe Henderson, Benny Green, Tom Harrell and Mulgrew Miller. At 19, on Ben Wolfe’s recommendation, the drummer joined Diana Krall’s band and stayed for two years. Today, at 35, with a 20-years’ experience and a lot of records as a sideman, Rodney Green has played with some of the most important jazz musicians: Charlie Haden, Terell Stafford, Wycliffe Gordon, Betty Carter, Abbey Lincoln, Dianne Reeves, Wynton Marsalis, etc.
We met Rodney Green while he was playing in Paris with the Benny Green Trio, featuring also David Wong (b).
