Curtis Fuller – New Trombone (1957)

Curtis Fuller – New Trombone
Jazz | FLAC | 1CD | 285 MB

Time: 39:04

This was recorded at the Van Gelder Studio, Hackensack, New Jersey on May 11, 1957.

This album was trombonist Curtis Fuller’s first as a bandleader.

On this date, Fuller is surrounded by fellow expatriates from Detroit, Michigan. Around the time that this record was made, Fuller had just moved to Manhattan from Motor City, and once in New York, he looked up other musicians from his hometown. The result is a keenly like-minded ensemble, including little-known alto saxophonist Sonny Red Kyner and the legendary pianist Hank Jones.

Here, Fuller and company perform mostly original material, with the exception of Mercer and De Paul’s “Namely You” and the Cole Porter standard “What Is This Thing Called Love?”

Other highlights include the angular “Vonce #5” and the up-tempo “Transportation Blues.”


1. Vonce #5 (Curtis Fuller)
2. Transportation Blues (Curtis Fuller)
3. Blue Lawson (Curtis Fuller)
4. Namely You (Mercer-DePaul)
5. What Is This Thing Called Love? (Cole Porter)

Recorded: May 11, 1957
