AllMusic Review by

This LP features trumpeter Bunny Berigan with his orchestra, a small group from his big band and The CBS House Band on radio airchecks from 1938 and two from 1939. Bunny is in generally fine form during these appearances even if he was technically declining due to his alcoholism. There is enough hot swing on this LP to make it a true collector's item.
