Album Review

Baritonist Lars Gullin was one of the biggest stars of Swedish jazz of the 1950s, starting with his first dates as a leader in 1951. His light tone, slightly reminiscent of Gerry Mulligan's although actually quite distinctive, and hard-swinging style made him a major force for 15 years. This CD has a variety of rarities (and a few common selections) that feature Gullin as a sideman during 1949-1952 when he was first starting to emerge. He is not only heard on baritone but making his only appearances ever on clarinet (being featured on "Swedish Pastry" in 1949) in addition to playing credible tenor, alto, and bass clarinet. Half of the 26 selections are from radio broadcasts and 11 of these were issued for the first time on this CD. Gullin is featured taking solos with groups led by bassist Arthur Osterwall, tenor saxophonist Zoot Sims ("Yellow Duck"), pop singers Charles Judah and Brita Borg, alto and tenor man James Moody, Stan Getz (including a famous version of "Don't Get Scared"), Leonard Feather (a beautiful ballad feature on "A Handful of Stars"), singer Alice Babs, clarinetist Putte Wickman, and altoist Arne Domnérus. In addition, the last four numbers have Gullin featured as one four of tenor saxophonists. Collectors of bop, cool jazz, and Lars Gullin can consider this set (along with the five previous volumes) essential.

Early on he learned to play bugle, clarinet, and piano, and was actually a professional altoist until switching to baritone when he was 21. Sounding somewhere between Gerry Mulligan and Serge Chaloff, Gullin played in local big bands in the late '40s and was in Arne Domnerus' sextet (1951-1953),...
