Product Description

Product Description

AVID Jazz here presents five classic Urbie Green albums including original LP liner notes on a finely re-mastered and low priced double CD. 'All About Urbie Green'; 'Blues & Other Shades of Green'; 'Urbie Green & His Band'; 'Urbie Green Septet' and 'Urbie: East Coast Jazz'. Born in Mobile, Alabama in 1926, Urbie Green began studying the piano at age seven before following his brother Jack and taking up the trombone in 1938. Following stints in a number of New York bands Green joined the Woody Herman Herd and remained there for three years forging a reputation as a great band and session trombonist. Recorded in 1956 'All About Urbie' gives Urbie 'a chance to utilise his horn in every conceivable way'…….blowing straight melody, jazz, section lead and even a line above the entire band. 'Blues & Other Shades of Green' recorded in 1955 features a great line up including Jimmy Raney on guitar, Dave McKenna on piano, Percy Heath on bass and Kenny Clarke on drums. The tempo is comfortable, the tunes relaxed and well balanced as is the division of musical duties. 'Urbie Green Septet' recorded in 1953 finds Urbie on the way up in the jazz hierarchy and features sideman of the calibre of Jimmy Lyon on piano, Doug Mettome on trumpet, Sam Staff on baritone sax and John Murtaugh on trumpet with Jimmy Campbell sitting behind on drums. 'East Coast Jazz' is another session from 1955 and Urbie's trombone is displaying the influence of Lester Young and Vic Dickenson and a line up that includes Oscar Pettiford on bass, Ike Horowitz on tenor and Jimmy Lyon on piano and with arrangements by Marion Evans also from Alabama! All five albums plus have been digitally re-mastered

5.0 out of 5 stars AN URBANE TROMBONIST 10 Feb 2013
By Barry McCanna TOP 100 REVIEWER
Format:Audio CD
This compilation features five albums in random order, chronologically speaking. "Urbie Green Septet" dates from December 1953 and "Urbie Green & his Band" was recorded in August 1954, and offered four extended numbers. To judge from their playing time, both were 10" LPs. "East Coast Jazz" dates from January 1955, "Blues and Other Shades of Green" followed in October 1955, and finally "All about Urbie Green & his Big Band" dates from mid-1956.

Urbie Green brought a wealth of experience to these sessions, having worked with Gene Krupa in the late 40s, then with Woody Herman's Third Herd. He was a much respected trombonist with a beautiful full tone which commanded attention, and this compilation presents him in both big band and small group settings, playing a wide range of compositions. His various studio groups included Ruby Braff, Doc Severinson, Al Cohn, Lou McGarity, Oscar Pettiford, Dave McKenna, Freddie Green, Jimmy Raney, Percy Heath and Kenny Clarke. Another winner from Avid.

5.0 out of 5 stars Urbie Green: Never to be Forgotten 2 Feb 2014
By ACB (swansea) TOP 50 REVIEWER
Format:Audio CD
These recordings are momentous and sound wonderful in their transference to CD audio format. The albums are: 'All About Urbie Green and his Big Band', 'Blues and other Shapes of Green', 'Urbie Green and his Band', 'Urbie Green Septet' and 'Urbie: East Coast Jazz'. There is a delightfulness about these numbers, from the titled 'Blues and Other Shades' through to 'Melody in B flat'. There is a simplicity and unsophisticated musicianship that belies the efficiency of playing both from the leader and his bandsmen. There is an enormous amount of activity within this simplistic sound. Listen to the lyrical solos of Dave McKenna and the trombone piano duet, the contributions Jimmy Raney makes on guitar with swing and harmonic openings for the soloists. Urbie had an attractive trombone tone. His solos were neat and to the point. The nom-de-plume 'Ike Horrowitz' is non-other than Al Cohn. Green later went on to record with Creed Taylor. All in all, an attractive and value for money musical set worthy of anyone's collection.

5.0 out of 5 stars Superb trombone and band work 14 Nov 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I had one of the vinyl albums featured on this two CD compilation when I was a teenager (late 50s) and played it extensively at that time. Urbie Green's trombone playing is superb, as is the band work and also the other soloists. The arrangements of some great standards are delightful, not just as I remembered them on my old vinyl album, but on all of the tracks on both CDs, not heard until now. Full marks to Avid Jazz for this compilation of five albums.
My music teacher plays trombone in a big band, so I bought an extra copy for her to enjoy and aspire to.
