Jazz trombonist Urbie Green has forged a veritable career as a studio musician, appearing on more than 250 recordings during a professional career that commenced in 1941. He has also toured extensively, working with the likes of Woody Herman, Gene Krupa and Frankie Carle. You could be forgiven, therefore, for imagining that Urbie Green would be a household name. And so he is, among other musicians, but his preference for remaining in the background resulted in a somewhat limited recording career under his own name. On the evidence of East Coast Jazz this is something of a loss. His early recordings showed plenty of promise, and the mix of some strong compositions and an equally strong line-up of accompanying musicians, including Danny bank, Doug Mettome, Jimmy Lyon, Oscar Pettiford, Osie Johnson and Al Cohn make this a well balanced album.
