Trombone player Urbie Green never was a household name but his two albums on the famous CTI label are excellent all-star jazz events featuring a host of guests like Eric Gale, Joe Farrell, Jeremy Steig, Mike Abene, Andy Newmark, Toots Thielemans, Jimmy Madison, Anthony Jackson and Mike Mainieri among others, delivering another slice of great CTI jazz. This session was produced by Creed Taylor and released 1976.

A fine jazz player with a beautiful tone who has spent most of his career in the studios, Urbie Green is highly respected by his fellow trombonists. He started playing when he was 12; was with the big bands of Tommy Reynolds, Bob Strong, and Frankie Carle as a teenager; and worked with Gene Krupa during 1947-1950. Green had a stint with Woody Herman’s Third Herd, appeared on some of the famous Buck Clayton jam sessions (1953-1954), and was with Benny Goodman off and on during 1955-1957. He played with Count Basie in 1963, and spent a period in the 1960s fronting the Tommy Dorsey ghost band (1966-1967), but has mostly stuck to studio work. Urbie Green recorded frequently as a leader in the 1950s up to 1963 (for Blue Note, Vanguard, Bethlehem, ABC-Paramount, and dance band-oriented records for RCA and Command). He has appeared much less often in jazz settings since then, but did make two albums for CTI in 1976-1977. –Artist Biography by Scott Yanow
