Lars Gullin: Baritone Sax/Lars Gullin Swings

Baritone Sax/Lars Gullin Swings arrive by way of a rather unlikely source. Released by Collectables Records, a company famous for its 7-inch singles and rock ‘n’ roll reissues, this single CD compiles all of the tracks, save one, from two terrific sessions. Both albums, Baritone Sax (Atlantic, 1956) and Lars Gullin Swings (East-West, 1958), feature Swedish baritone master Lars Gullin improvising with an all-star cast of jazz compatriots. Whether he is performing in a quartet, quintet, sextet, octet or big band setting, the Mulligan-influenced Gullin wails throughout. Gullin’s tone on the “big horn” is light and agile; his solos flow with a wealth of unending invention. These albums are extremely rare and if you were lucky enough to find them, would carry a very hefty price tag on the collector's market. Thankfully, you can purchase this gem for approximately US $20.00 (Canadian $25) by visiting the Collectables Web site at www.oldies.com . A marvelous, swingin’ treasure from a little-known legend. ####
