After Fats Navarro left Billy Eckstine band ,Fats and Kenny Dorham joined small-group session under the leadership of Kenny Clarke.

Then Fats Navarro and Kenny Dorham recorded a historical performance on September 5 1946 on Victor label.

They were named Kenny Clarke and his 52nd Street Boys.

Next day(September 6) they recorded on Savoy label as The Be Bop Boys.

Also The Be Bop Boys was named Gil Fuller’s Modernists.

Common members of two days were Kenny Dorham, Fats Navarro, Sonny Stitt, Bud Powell, Kenny Clarke.

Noteworthy, Gil Fuller was included as arranger on both sessions.

Also Savoy label instructed a long recording time.

Four tunes cut a greater length than an usual recording.

Because these were recorded at double length for release over two sides of a 78 rpm disc.

In 1949 Gil Fuller recorded his leader recordings on Discovery label.

Unfortunately after that, he has not produced his own album until 1965.

Kenny Clarkeはレコーディンググループを結成するためにBilly Eckstine楽団を脱退したFats NavarroとKenny Dorham を参加させました。
Kenny Clarke and his 52nd Street Boys と名付けられたグループは1946年9月5日にビクター社に歴史的な演奏を録音しました。
翌日(9月6日)、Kenny ClarkeはSavoy社にThe Be Bop Boysと名付けられたグループ名で録音しています。別名 Gil Fuller’s Modernistsと名付けられました。
二日間に共通しているのはKenny Dorham, Fats Navarro, Sonny Stitt, Bud Powell という錚々たるメンバーでした。
注目すべきはGil Fullerが両日のレコーディングで編曲者として参加していたことです。
この日Savoy社は一曲の録音時間を長くするよう指示しました。
その結果、録音された4曲は通常の時間よりも長めにレコーディングされています。
何故なら78rpm(3分仕様)の両面で1曲として発売する意図で2倍の時間でレコーディングされたからです。
1949年、Gil FullerはDiscovery社からリーダーアルバムをレコーディングしています。
残念なことにその後1965年まで自分のアルバムを制作していません。
