Liner Note Author: Anatol Schenker.
Recording information: New York, NY (12/13/1935-08/27/1936).
Bunny Berigan began his prime stretch of solo recordings with this collection of songs cut between 1935-1936. Berigan still worked as a sideman for the likes of Benny Goodman during this period, and he even did some session and film work, but it is his own material which has solidified his reputation as a top figure of the big band era. And while later sides from 1937-1939 would trump some of the ones included here, this collection still brims over with exciting and tight material from a variety of Berigan contingents. In addition to his first stab at "I Can't Get Started" (somewhat inferior to the classic version from 1937), Berigan is featured on a bevy of small group and a large ensemble highlights, like "Chicken and Waffles" and "Blues." There's also a clutch of songs cut under pianist and Goodman-alum Frank Froeba's leadership, which spotlight the pleasant-enough vocal talents of Midge Williams and Chris Bullock. Also on hand, jazz royalty like Artie Shaw, Cozy Cole, Eddie Condon, and Bud Freeman. A fine mix from Berigan's early heyday. ~ Stephen Cook
