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.

Please refer to Wikipedia.Go here

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。

Johnny Pate had recorded as a bassist with his own trio on the Federal, King, Gig, Salem, and MGM labels.

In 1958 he played bass was James Moody’s album “Last Train from Overbrook.” at Argo Records.

This album was one of his last works as a bassist.

His music career had gradually changed as a producer and an arranger from playing a musical instrument.

In the 1960s he produced or arranged some famous albums.

He produced “B.B. King Live at the Regal” in 1964.

This recording is considered by many to be one of the definitive blues albums.

In 1964 he received a significant work from Creed Taylor.

What is Quadraphonic sound?

January 26.2016

Last week, I was reading a past article of JazzWax.

Creed Taylor said ‘I loved quadraphonic sound’.

I will post the memories about the ‘quadraphonic sound’.
qs-1

When I began to listen to jazz, there was a live recording program in FM radio.

The program was named ‘4 channel golden stage’ ,sponcerd by ‘Sansui’.
If you had ‘QS4 system by Sansui’ and two rear speakers,
you could hear live concert as same atmosphere.
Unfortunately, I did not have ‘QS4 system by Sansui’.
qs-1(1)
From reading this article, I imagine that Creed Taylor had find the possibility of music to ‘quadraphonic sound’.
Sansui was bankrupt, CTI as well.

However, currently,’ surround sound is standard with home theaters.

“Quad is an early 4.0 sound mix, or early surround sound that needed special equipment, this was basically the precursor to surround sound as we know it.”
