Urbie Green's Medical Fund

$25,170 of $35,000 goal

Raised by 375 people in 6 months




If you are a fan of Jazz, you may be well aware of the artistry of my father, Urbie Green. He is a legendary Trombonist and has had a career that can only be compared to those top performers who came before him; a career that has inspired millions and brought joy to so many. 

In his early days, he was a prodigy and went on the road to support his family during the Great Depression. After being scouted and joining Big Bands, he played with the likes of Benny Goodman, Gene Krupa, Count Basie, Ella Fitzgerald, and Frank Sinatra.

It is now, in his senior years where we find ourselves as a family, struggling to support him, as he has fallen on several medical challenges.

 Over the years, it has become increasingly difficult to keep up with medical bills, as Urbie has had several health problems at the age of 91.

 We ask, humbly, as a family striving to support him, to contribute anything you can to assist him in his later years.

 Without going into detail, you can imagine at this age, there are many issues he is facing. Proceeds will help pay for doctor's visits, medical procedures, medication, physical therapy, assisted living, etc.

 We ask, please, that you find it in your heart, to contribute to his well being, and help support the challenge of allowing him to remain comfortable in these golden years.

 Thank you so much for your generosity!

April Update:

I'm traveling home this month and next to continue helping our family in these trying times. Urbie is currently receiving much needed care at a home nearby. All donations to his health fund are greatly appreciated (and are going a long way to help offset costs).

Our family is so grateful for the outpouring of support for our beloved Urbie.

That being said, we are still challenged by the expense and humbly ask for continued donations. Even if you've donated before, if you can contribute again, it can make a difference.

Many thanks!!!

An amazing moment: Urbie records with an all-star band for Frank Sinatra's "L.A. is my Lady" led by producer Quincy Jones, captured on the documentary, "Portrait of an Album"... Enjoy!

Thanks for the continued contributions towards Urbie's fundraiser. Any amount goes a long way!

All the best,
