The trombone world loses Urbie Green.


On December 31, 2018, the virtuoso jazz trombonist Urbie Green, with 96 years of age, left us.

Urbie Green born on August 8, 1926 is considered one of the best trombonists in the world, not only for his mastery of the instrument, also for its warm and soft tone, its lyrical expression and beautiful solos.

Being very young Urbie started a promising career, in which he collaborated with leading bands. In 1954 he won the Down Beat International Critics Award for “New Star”, which made him one of the most sought-after trombonists to record and work in clubs in New York City, with greats like Benny Goodman and Louis Armstrong.
