One of my favorite trombonists right from the get go when I was first exposed to jazz music over 20 years ago was Curtis Fuller. I guess my first exposure to Fuller came with his work with Blakey and the Jazz Messengers. Also his work on the John Coltrane led Blue Note session Blue Train in which he helps open the track Blue Train. I realise he played on quite a number of Blue Note sessions, yeah Lee Morgan's Tom Cat which I'm listening to right now. So many I hope you might mention a few others? I recently had the good fortune to see Curtis perform with a number of other big named musicians at an area jazz show which proved to be very enjoyable. More later. So how about taking a few moments and share your love for Curtis? At the same time, I presently don't own any Curtis led dates and I would like to hear some thoughts on possible recommendations? I see The Opener has been reissued, a 1957 session recorded for Blue Note. I'd like some input on that particular session as well. Thanks.
