in the "Studies of Jazz" Series. This book is the comprehensive and indispensable biography of Roland Bernard "Bunny" Berigan. The author is Michael Zirpolo. Anyone interested in Bunny Berigan, his contemporaries, jazz and big band history will be riveted to this book from the moment that they open it. . Bunny Berigan was the trumpet phenomenon as he blazed his way across New York’ s Depression-wracked music scene. He was the inspiration for three of CBS Radio ’ s popular small groups; the nucleus of innumerable jazz record sessions; the heart and soul of the combo that captivated patrons at the Famous Door.

Dupuis' biography sheds a great deal of light on the background of Berigan, who was one of the first important soloists in jazz history. Armstrong, of course, was the one who developed the idea, but early jazz musicians like Berigan who were influenced by Armstrong's playing were the ones who refined it and fortified it with their own technique. A jazz trumpeter's dream, the long-awaited (for 50 years) biography of the greatest white trumpet-player of the century. What Michigan-based jazz scholar Dupuis lacks in stylishness is more than made up for by his relentless search for the wellsprings of the Berigan horn's Irish gaiety, growls, and tone. How did Bunny Berigan () come up with such a swinging, colossal, fat, velvety sound?Author: Robert Dupuis.

  (1) This review was by Paul Eduard Miller, and it appeared in the November issue of Down Beat, and is cited in the Bozy White Berigan bio-discography at Aug (2) Bunny Berigan Elusive Legend of Jazz, by Robert Dupuis (), (3) Bozy White Berigan bio-discography at August 8, The White materials are also scheduled to lead to a biodiscography--a discography being notably absent from the present volume. Summing Up: Highly recommended. All readers who are students or aficionados of jazz., From now on, everyone writing about the great swing and big band trumpeter Bunny Berigan will have to refer to this book.
