Ed Greene est un batteur américain associé à un nombre considérable de productions de funk, de disco et de rock à partir des années 70. On le retrouve aussi bien aux côtés de Marvin Gaye, Barry White, Aretha Franklin, Willie Hutch que de Steeyly Dan, Tim Buckley, The Mamas & the Papas, Michael Franks et même Sylvie Vartan.

Malgré son énorme contribution à l’histoire de la pop music, il bénéficie d’une notoriété personnelle très limitée, comme nombre de musiciens de studio. Les crédits, imprécis, voire insistants le rendent difficile à pister. Son jeu de batterie – groove et time déments / son de caisse claire pneumatique, souvent très au fond du temps – sont pourtant d’un apport considérables dans les tubes auxquels il a participé. Ed Greene, c’est l’archétype du “pocket drummer”.

“A lot of people think Ed’s a black man because he has so much pocket” James Gadson

Jouer “in the pocket” pourrait se définir par une façon de de se concentrer sur le groove, grâce à une pulsation solide et métronomique, en cherchant moins les complications que le feeling sur la durée. Un jeu de batterie simple et funky, qui demande un savoir faire plus grand qu’il n’y parait et surtout beaucoup d’humilité. Ed Greene, quand on lui demande de décrire son jeu répond simplement :

“I just play the simple fill, behind these artists” Ed Greene

Ed Greene, l’homme dont la seule mission sur Terre est de trouver le groove de batterie qui tue et accessoirement de multiplier vos chances de concrétiser en boîte.

 


Sammy Davis Jr. – Now

Le premier tube auquel il participe est le Candy Man de Sammy Davis Jr., sorti en 1972 (reprise de la B.O. de Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory, sorti l’année précédente)

Allez l’écouter sur youtube si vous le souhaitez, mais la chanson est dispensable.

Ed Greene, Barry White, Gene Page et le Love Unlimited Orchestra

Bien qu’il ne soit quasiment jamais crédité sur les pochettes de Barry White, c’est Ed Greene qui a réalisé une grande majorité des tubes du lover Baryton, notamment les productions grand spectacle de Love Unlimited Orchestra. Ed Greene est une pièce essentielle de la sonorité de cet orchestre de 41 musiciens, fait d’un ensemble de cordes chantilly et d’une section rythmique ultra moulante…

Le noyau dur de la rythmique du Love Unlimited Orchestra est composé de Ray Parker Jr., David T. Walker, Don Peake et Wah Wah Watson (guitares), Wilton Fender (basse, Wilton Fender est aussi le bassiste des Crusaders), Ed Greene (batterie) et Gary Coleman (percussions).

Barry White – I’m Gonna Love You Just A Little Bit More, Baby

Gene Page est un autre personnage important de la galaxie Barry White. Véritable bras-droit du chanteur, c’est lui qui a (co-)arrangé un nombre important de tubes du chanteur. C’est avec lui que The Sultan of Bedroom Soul met sur pied en 1973 le Love Unlimited Orchestra. Le Love Unlimited Orchestra contribue à installer Barry White en tête des charts dans les ghettos à partir de I’ve Got So Much to Give, et pour les 5 années qui suivront (I’m Gonna Love Just a little More = N°1 soul, n°3 Pop)
Theme From King Kong (1977) est le dernier tube de Love Unlimited Orchestra, qui existera jusqu’en 1983.

C’est en écoutant Midnight Groove que j’ai cherché à en savoir plus sur ce batteur. Écoutez ce backbeat démentiel.

Est-ce Ed Greene qui joue sur It’s Ecstasy When You Lay Down Next to Me? ça se pourrait bien, mais impossible d’en avoir la certitude avec les moyens dont je dispose.

Gene Page fera régulièrement appel à Ed Greene pour ses propres productions. Hot City est le premier album à son nom chez Atlantic, et son premier album entièrement instrumental. Sorti en 1974, et produit par Barry White, on baigne ici dans une luxure auditive des plus sophistiquées.

Né à Los Angeles, Gene Page est l’arrangeur qui participe à d’innombrables disques d’or. Sa collaboration la plus notable est Barry White, mais il a également travaillé pour la Motown et la crème chantilly de la variété internationale : Johnny Mathis & Deniece Williams, Whitney Houston, Marvin Gaye, Peaches & Herb, Kenny Rogers, the Righteous Brothers, Aretha Franklin, Elton John, the Whispers, Gladys Knight, The Everly Brothers, Barbra Streisand, The Mamas and the Papas, Dionne Warwick, Sylvie Vartan.

Probe ‎- 1C 062-95107, 1973

Quand on veut donner un son californien à un parrain du (Rhythm &) Blues comme Bobby “Blues” Bland, Ed Greene fait partie des musiciens que l’on appelle. C’est ce qu’a fait le producteur Steve Barri pour le bien nommé “His California Album” (1er album chez ABC Records après 2 décennies chez Duke), album perçu par les fans de l’époque comme une tentative d’édulcorer le style du chanteur, mais qui contient néanmoins quelques bijoux, dont le premier titre : This Time I’m Gone For Good.
