G. Greene | 05/29/2000
(5 out of 5 stars)

"In the 30s (and maybe even today), Louie Armstrong was considered the greatest trumpet player of all time. Someone once asked Louie who the best trumpeter was after him, to which he replied, "Well, there's Bunny." Berigan's low notes resonate of late nights and whisky-soaked, smoke-filled clubs, and his high notes soar to a firmament unreachable by mere mortals. This is the best of the Bunny Berigan compilations, containing both versions of "I Can't Get Started," which was one of the first ten songs inducted into the Jazz Hall of Fame. Not only does this have the best of Bunny's various bands, it also includes his great work with Dorsey, Miller, Holliday, and others. If you like 30s jazz, this is a must have!"
A Sad Hero of Swing

"Absolutely wonderful. Bunny could do it all. He helped put swing on the map for the general public when he appeared with Benny Goodman, Tommy Dorsey, others and then on his own. His classic rendition of "I can't get started with you" (two versions on this disc) will live forever as a trumpet classic. He died tragically from complications of his fight against alcoholism at the age 34."
