Summary
Oscar "Ozzie" Cadena (September 26, 1924 – April 9, 2008) was an American record producer with Savoy Records and Prestige Records who recorded gospel and jazz music in the 1950s, 1960s and 1970s, and helped popularize jazz music in Los Angeles. Background Cadena was born in Oklahoma City on September 26, 1924, and moved as a child to Newark, New Jersey. As a youth, he would visit African-American churches and travel to Harlem to listen to the music. He enlisted in the United States Marine Corps and served for four years in the South Pacific during World War II. He worked at Newark's Radio Record Shop, whose owner Herman Lubinsky also owned Savoy Records. Cadena became a producer and A&R scout from 1954 to 1959 after his first sessions, in which he recorded trombonists J. J. Johnson and Kai Winding in the first album of a lengthy collaboration; Cadena had first spoken to Johnson about a duo with Bennie Green which led to a duo after all, but with Winding as his partner.
