Within our Flashback series, Leipzig trombonist Mathias Hochmuth dedicates himself to Fuller's music and brings his music to the fore.

In May 2021, the US trombonist Curtis Fuller passed away. He "celebrated the soul and warmth of the trombone like no other, playing with ease over fast tempos and rapid chord progressions," Nils Wogram said of one of his musical idols. "Man in the middle" was the headline of the Süddeutsche Zeitung about his obituary, alluding to the fact that the musician, born in Detroit in 1943, had mostly been perceived as an "eternal companion" and that the record that had helped him to greater fame was not one of his own 40 releases, but John Coltrane's 1957 album "Blue Train", released by Blue Note Records. Fuller had arrived in New York in April 1957 as a member of Yusef Lateef's quintet. When Lateef and his band finally returned to Detroit after their recording sessions, Fuller stayed behind on the East Coast and within a month contributed to four albums for Prestige as a sideman, also releasing a first album on Blue Note Records ("The Opener") that same year and after his debut on Prestige ("New Trombone").
