Who was Lars Gullin?
Lars Gullin was born in Sanda, Gotland and lived his last 10 years in the areas around Emmaboda (near Mundekulla). He is considered one of Sweden's foremost jazz musicians of all time, and arrived just when jazz was of highest interest in Sweden, during the 50s and early 60s. He also attracted international attention and his greatness lay on several levels, first and foremost, his brilliant way to handle the baritone saxophone. His tone so soft but still bearing the sharpness, his tune marked as a flowing story and his improvisations with total presence and never with a tone that had nothing to say. He was also a great composer and arranger with high standards of music, himself and his fellow musicians and always with an open mind to new influences. In the outwardly successful and cheeky jazz musician lived a very sensitive soul. It was not easy to survive unscathed in the tough reality of a really quite shy man from Gotland as he called himself. When he finally began to find new stability in life with his wife Mailis Gullin in Småland, he died from disease May 17, 1976, 48 years old. After him he left a priceless treasure of the compositions and recordings of lessons and inspiration for generations of musicians to come. (Read more about Lars Gullin on www.gullin.net)
