I love the Trombone in Jazz, the sound attracts my ear and it sounds delightful!! I have collected all the Greats, J.J.Johnson, Bob Brookmeyer, Slide Hampton, Frank Rosolino, Curtis Fuller, Bennie Green, Kai Winding, Urbie Green, Conrad Herwig to name a few. I recently heard Steve Turre on Bob Parlocha’s Jazz Radio show and he was great!! Check out this nice video which highlights his talent and his latest album.
Urban Clifford “Urbie” Green was born on August 8, 1926, a professional jazz trombonist who toured with Woody Herman, Gene Krupa, Jan Savitt, and Frankie Carle. Urbie is one of my favorite trombonist and I have quite a few as for some reason I’m drawn to the sound of this instrument. Mr. Green has a soft and pleasing melodic tone. Here are a few samplings of his style and sound. Discover and enjoy!!
