I was wondering if anyone here knows much about Urbie Green's brother Jack. The reason I am asking is because when I was a kid learning to play in the early to mid 70's, he used to live in my hometown - Spartanburg, SC. I never met the man or heard him play but I do remember people telling me there was a great trombone player in town who was Urbie Green's brother. Unfortunately, I knew nothing about jazz at the time, so I really didn't even know who Urbie was. I do remember being mad when the choir director at the local First Baptist church hired him to play on a recording of his musical instead of me, which in retrospect was probably a good move on his part.

He was one of Urbie's two older trombone playing brothers.  And both he and Urb were on one of my favorite all time sections with Carl Fontana in the 51-52 Third Herd (also known as "The Seldom Herd" because Woody's own label failed pretty badly at that time).  Other than that, I too would like to know more!
