Lars Gullin: Portrait Of The Legendary Baritone Saxophonist - Complete 1956-1960 Studio Recordings (CD: Fresh Sound, 4 CDs)
Lars Gullin (1928-1976) was not only the greatest of the golden generation of jazz musicians who first put Sweden on the global jazz scene in the 1950s, but also one of the best baritone saxophonists the music has ever seen. Lyrical, imaginative, remarkably creative as a player and prolific composer, he forged a uniquely personal and instantly recognisable style out of the rapidly absorbed influences of Gerry Mulligan and Lee Konitz and the folk and classical music of his own country. International recognition was swift. In 1954 he was the first non-American to win a Down Beat poll when he was voted New Baritone Sax Star. With Mulligan and Serge Chaloff he helped to establish the baritone firmly as a front-rank solo instrument in jazz.

Despite a life occasionally beset by personal problems, throughout his career he produced music that was consistently good and sometimes sublime. And during 1956-1960, the period covered in this collection, he was at his peak. Surrounded by outstanding members of that Scandinavian golden generation, including Rolf Billberg, Åke Persson, Arne Domnérus, Jan Allan, Rune Öfwermann and Bengt-Arne Wallin, he made a series of recordings that stand as testimony to his multiple gifts as a player, composer and arranger.

4 CD Box Set including a 36-page booklet with comprehensive essay written by Ray Comiskey, session details, photos, original art & liner notes. (Absolute Distribution)
