Marching band conductor

Let \(f(x)\) be the unique polynomial that satisfies

\[ f(n) = \sum_{i=1}^n i^{101 }, \mbox{ for all positive integers}\ n.\]

The leading coefficient of \(f(n) \) can be expressed as \( \frac{a}{b} \), where \( a\) and \(b\) are positive coprime integers. What is the value of \(a+b\)?
