CURTIS FULLER (b. 1934). Possibly the greatest trombonist-composer since J.J. Johnson, Curtis is one of the many great Detroit bop players, including Tommy Flanagan, Paul Chambers, and Hank Jones, all of whom he recorded with. After stints with Cannonball Adderley, Kenny Burrell and Miles Davis, he joined the Golson-Farmer Jazztet ('59-60) and was with Art Blakey's Jazz Messengers ('62-65) in a group that included Wayne Shorter, Freddie Hubbard and Cedar Walton. Except for tours with Dizzy Gillespie ('68) and Count Basie ('75-78), Curtis has freelanced since the mid '60s and has played on scores of albums as both a leader and a sideman, frequently with his fellow Jazztet and Messenger alums. Curtis was influenced by his friend, John Coltrane, and can be heard on the classic "Blue Train" album.
