Curtis Fuller - Five Spot After Dark

“When I was in middle school, I happened to buy a jazz record called Blues-ette at a used recordstore. An old LP. I can’t remember why I bought it at the time. I had never heard any jazz before. But anyway, the first tune on side A was ‘Five Spot After Dark,’ and it was great. A guy named Curtis Fuller played the trombone on it. The first time I heard it, I felt the scales fall from my eyes. That’s it, I thought. That’s the instrument for me. The trombone and me: it was a meeting arranged by destiny.”

— Haruki Murakami - After Dark
