The “trombonist’s trombonist” Urbie Green(4)

June 24.2017

Urbie Green became one of the most sought-after trombonists for recording and club work in New York City.

He also collaborated on a series of albums with jazz producer Enoch Light.

Urbie Green recorded his late masterpieces with  Enoch Light.

Then he guested on recordings by Wes Montgomery, Jimmy Smith, Antonio Carlos Jobim, Astrud Gilberto and Cal Tjader.

I guess the producer Creed Taylor evaluated his musical sense.

In the 1970s, Green moved to a farm in Pennsylvania, but continued to do session recording.

He is still alive.

Urbie Greenはニューヨークにおいて、スタジオ録音やジャズクラブ演奏で最も人気の高いトロンボーン奏者の一人になりました
又、プロデューサーEnoch Lightと共に音響的に優れたアルバムを制作しています。

Urbie Greenは後期代表作をレコーディングしました。
その後、Wes Montgomery, Jimmy Smith, Antonio Carlos Jobim,Astrud Gilberto等のスタジオレコーデイングに名前を連ねています。
これら諸作のプロデューサーCreed TaylorがUrbie Greenの音楽的センスを評価した結果であると思います。
1970年代以降はペンシルベニア州の農場で悠々自適の生活を暮らしながら気に入った時には音楽活動を行なっています。
