1951/52 - Vol. 5 - First Walk

The superior reissue series on Dragon features Swedish baritonist Lars Gullin in his prime. The fifth CD, First Walk, showcases Gullin in three quartets and with three medium-size groups. Gullin, who was a perfect baritonist for cool jazz, is the star throughout, not only contributing solos but memorable originals in "That's It," "Danny-O," and "First Walk"; the latter has Gullin making a rare appearance on bass clarinet. All 26 selections will be enjoyed by fans of 1950s West Coast-style jazz. Highly recommended.
