2007 TEC Awards Hall of Fame Inductee Ed Greene

The TEC Awards Hall of Fame was created in 1988 to recognize those individuals, living or deceased, whose careers have best exemplified the spirit of creative and technical excellence in professional audio.

Broadcast Mixer Ed Greene will be inducted into the TEC Awards Hall of Fame at the 23rd Annual Technical Excellence & Creativity Awards, to be held Saturday, October 6, at the New York Marriott Marquis. Presented by the Mix Foundation for Excellence in Audio, the TEC Awards recognizes outstanding achievement in professional audio production and product design.

Greene has worked in the professional sound industry for more than 50 years. He has won 19 primetime Emmy Awards. Earlier this year he received the Cinema Audio Society’s Career Achievement Award and had been nominated for four other CAS Awards, winning once. He has also been nominated for 14 TEC Awards and won nine. His live productions include: 25-plus years on The Grammy Awards®, more than 20 years on The Tony Awards and 11 years working on The Academy Awards. He did live telecasts of the 1996 Summer Olympics and the 2002 Winter Olympics (opening and closing ceremonies), the Live from Lincoln Center specials, and Carnegie Hall, Live at 100. He mixed all 29 years of “The Kennedy Center Honors” as well as numerous AFI events.

Born and raised in New York City, Greene attended Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute. He began his professional audio career with a summer job in 1954 at Allegro Studios in New York doing voice and piano demos for music publishers. Within two years the studio was doing full orchestra recording sessions. Greene was drafted in 1956 and served as recording engineer for the U.S. Army Band and Chorus in Washington, D.C. Upon discharge he co-founded Edgewood Studios in Washington. Some of his recordings are legendary and include Charlie Byrd and Stan Getz's “Jazz Samba", and Ramsey Lewis's "The In Crowd.”

Coming to California in 1970, Greene served as chief engineer for MGM records and worked with Sammy Davis Jr., the Osmonds and Lou Rawls, among others. When many of these artists started doing television projects, he was asked to participate. Seeing a need for music engineers that also understood production, he gradually made the transition to television. Since then, Greene has mixed some of the most highly regarded music, award and dramatic programs. These include specials with Frank Sinatra, Barbra Streisand, Neil Diamond, and Bette Midler. He has earned the well-deserved reputation of being the "go-to" guy when it comes to doing live events for television like ER, Fail Safe and West Wing Live.
