Roland Bernard "Bunny" Berigan (November
2, 1908 – June 2, 1942) was an American
jazz trumpeter who rose to fame during the
swing era, but whose career and influence
were shortened by a losing battle with
alcoholism that ended with his early death at
age 33 from cirrhosis. Although he
composed some jazz instrumentals like
"Chicken and Waffles" and "Blues", Berigan
was best known for his virtuoso jazz
trumpeting. His 1937 classic recording "I
Can't Get Started" was inducted into the
Grammy Hall of Fame in 1975.
