Announcing a new online music resource at Mills Music Library: NAXOS Jazz Library. This was recently separated out from the main NAXOS site. It contains music from the entire history of jazz. So, check it out!

New CD: Swingin' & jumpin' : broadcasts 1937-39 (Hep Records).

Mills Music Library is proud to announce the release of a new CD of previously unissued and rare jazz recordings from our Bunny Berigan Collection. These high quality radio transcriptions of live performances by Berigan’s band were discovered in Mills Music Library’s recording collection last year by Berigan fan and biographer Mike Zirpolo. Most have never been heard since their initial broadcast over 80 years ago.

Berigan was one of the great jazz trumpeters of the swing-era. After years playing with various groups led by Paul Whiteman, Benny Goodman, and Tommy Dorsey, Berigan led his own band to national fame in the 1930s. This is an exciting discovery for Berigan fans and jazz trumpet fans alike.

The call number is COMP DISC 24350
