URBIE GREEN

BIG BAND

COMPLETE 1956-1959 RECORDINGS

Description:
2 CD set. Urban Clifford Green known since childhood as Urbie was born in Mobile, Alabama, on August 8, 1926. The 1950s and 1960s were probably Urbie Green's most productive recording period. He moved to New York in 1953, and by the following year he established himself as one of the top trombonists in the nation's most competitive market. It was around this time that he took his first formal music lessons. Urbie worked with Benny Goodman off and on during 1955 57, appeared in the movie The Benny Goodman Story, and played with Count Basie in 1963. After the death of Tommy Dorsey, Urbie Green fronted the Tommy Dorsey ghost band 1966 67. During his long career, Urbie recorded along side some of the greatest figures in jazz, including Louis Armstrong, Charles Mingus, Billie Holiday, Coleman Hawkins and Ella Fitzgerald, Antonio Carlos Jobim, Wes Montgomery, Joe Morello and Jimmy Smith. He remained musically active until the 1980s. This release contains the complete initial recordings of the fabulous Urbie Green Big Band, covering the period from 1956 to 1959. It includes the complete original LPs All About Urbie Green, Let's Face the Music and Dance, Jimmy McHugh in Hi Fi & The Message which appeared many years after it was recorded. The last two albums appear here for the first time ever on CD.
