1954/56 - Vol. 9 - Summertime
Warning: Last items in stock!
The album encompasses eight songs recorded in June '54 and April '56 by Gullin's septet/octet, four numbers from April 25, 1956 on which he solos with the Gösta Theselius Orchestra, and two others recorded that same day by Gullin's quintet with trombonist Åke Persson sharing the front line. Gullin had his highs and lows (quite literally) in '54, as he was hospitalized from February to May for the recurring drug problems that would hasten his death in 1976 at the relatively young age of 48.
