4 1/2 STARS ALL MUSIC GUIDE

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.
