Bill Watrous

Urbie Green is the greatest trombone player I have ever heard.

Hip-Bone Music is proud to feature the legendary Bill Watrous as our bone2pick artist of the month for July. Bill graciously sits down with Michael to candidly discuss everything from his times with Kai Winding & Woody Herman, recording the seminal albums Manhattan Wildlife Refuge & Tiger of San Pedro for Columbia Records, his iconic Fourth Floor Walk Up cadenza, his good buddies Carl Fontana, Urbie Green & Frank Rosolino and the rise and fall of the New York and LA studio scenes. An enjoyable and honest discussion with a true trombone legend.
