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. ####

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
