“Mr. Fuller was among the dozens of musicians to emerge from the fertile mid-century jazz scene of Detroit, where he learned to play intricate, fast-paced bebop lines on the unwieldy slide trombone. When [he] arrived in New York in the mid-1950s, he immediately became a major figure in the hard-bop movement.” He played with many of the greatest jazz bands of his era, including the Jazztet, Art Blakey’s Jazz Messengers, and the ensembles of Miles David, John Coltrane, Dizzy Gillespie, Count Basie, and Woody Shaw. – The Washington Post
