A gem from the tortured soul of the great Berigan.He had a very short life,passing away when he was just 33 years of age.His fierce,fiery playing was influenced by Armstrong.Although in heavy demand for recording and playing,he proved to be naive in his finances,so much so that people cheated him out of his money and Berigan spent the last years desperate to rid himself of all his business debts.His problems were exacerbated by his reliance on alcohol.Eventually he contracted cirrhosis of the liver.Doctors advised him to stop drinking and have a rest from playing.He did neither and soon after he suffered a massive brain hemorrhage and died.A brilliant,yet tragic individual,who left us a number of excellent records.One of my favourite white trumpet players
