I really love Curtis Fuller. FUNKY!! That is the word I can describe him.
Among few his leader albums, I love this
New Trombone on Prestige
The reason one, FUNKY!!
The reason two, a COOL JACKET DESIGN!! What a cool design!
In addition, the band members are great!
- Red Kyner also known as Sonny Red on alto
- Doug Watkins on bass
- Hank Jones on piano
- Luis Hayes on drums
They just play GREAT!!
But...The original is hard to come by, so, I recommend you to get this reissue, SMJ series of Victor Music Japan in 1979.
Victor Music Japan reissued the same title in the early 90's as VIJJ series, but I prefer SMJ. Because, the pressing quality is far much better than VIJJ series. The sound is stable and solid too!
