CD Reviews

My Man Urban | Madera, CA | 09/17/1999
(4 out of 5 stars)

"Urbie Green has been my favorite trombonist since I first heard him on "Huckle-Buck and Robbins' Nest" with the Buck Clayton All-Stars (Columbia CL 548) vintage 12-16-1953.This was the session in "Robbin' Nest" where he and Henderson Chambers when doing "the chase" and Urbie discovered the screaming uppermost D flat, that was to become his signature lead-in.This album has a few arrangements that are a bit too uptempo for my taste, "A" Train for one, but the overall performance is "swinging". For those of you who can get a copy of Ralph Burn's "Porgy and Bess in Modern Jazz" (Decca DL 9215), Urbie on "Bess, Oh Where's my Bess" is one of the most emotional trombone solos I have ever heard.This small group session is a variety of platforms to illustrate his exceptional skills and should be a welcome addition to your Jazz Library."
Great performance- near bootleg quality recording

"This CD contains a 1981 performance by Urbie Green. The performance is great. However, it sounds like somebody recorded the concert on a portable casette tape recorder and put the results out on CD."
