Bunny Berigan To Play At Engineers' Annual Slide Rule Ball

The unusual swing rhythms which
characterize the music of Bunny
Berigan will thrill couples attending
the annual Slide Rule Ball March 27,
when that "Miracle Man of Music"
brings his trumpet and his .orches-
tra to the Union Ballroom.

even greater than Bix Beiderbecke,
the immortal cornet man-Bunny

recting the orchestra at the same
time and setting a terrific pace for
the boys swinging along right beside
None other than Louis Armstrong,
hailed by many as the greatest trum-
peter of all times, has stated, "I've
always admired Bunny Berigan for
his tone, soul, technique, his sense
of phrasing and all. To me Bunny
can do no wrong in music."
Good Trumpet Player
Bunny maintains that a good
trumpet player can gain by contrast
in breaking into a sweet, harmonious
number, indicating that patrons of
sweet music will be well served at
the Ball.
Among the phenomenal accom-
plishments of the great trumpeter
is a range of four octaves on his
trumpet, as he can reach an F ovrt2
high C without difficulty.
Credits Rivals With Success
Crediting two of his rivals for his
radio success, Bunny has declared
that "I'd still be puffin' hot licks on
an old bent trumpet if it weren't for
Benny Goodman and Tommy Dor-
sey." They helped him get started.
Included in a long list of impres-
sive engagements played by Berigan
and his orchestra are appearances
at such places as the Pennsylvania
Hotel in New York, the College Inn
in Chicago and the Paramount and
Loew State Theatre in New York.
Has Two Ambitions
Indicative of the maestro's musical
ideas are his two ambitions: to hide
himself somewhere in the New York
Philharmonic Symphony Orchestra
some day when Toscanini is conduct-
ing Debussy's "Afternoon of a Faun,"
and suddenly stand up and "get hot."
A second ambition is to swing out
at West Point on "Reveille" and
