This 56-minute CD contains 20 tunes recorded live for radio broadcast during three sessions in New York between 1937-1940. This previously unreleased music is from the brief five-year period where Berigan led a big band. The music consists of popular swing standards and a few original tunes. The personnel is almost totally different on each of these three live sessions. The sound quality is very high, and there is brilliant, explosive trumpet playing throughout by Bunny Berigan, as well as other fine soloists. As can clearly be heard, Berigan was capable of bringing out the best in his musicians.
