This from trombonist Tom Bartlett:

 > Jerry Fuller played extensively with the original Dukes of Dixieland (on
> many of those Audio Fidelity lp's) and later toured with Jack Teagarden.

> He settled in Chicago area in the late 60's and was the main reason for
> the formation of the Illiana Jazz Club (his fans, who followed him to his
> long stint at the Inn Place on the Illinois - Indiana border set up the
> club...hence the name.)
 > He remained a fan favorite for decades before moving to the East
coast...Boston, I think.? He was a barber by trade when the music biz was
slow. He's retired now.? If you want more details, contact Eddy Banjura of
the Illiana Jazz Club....JazzEddy @aol.com.
