    RARE OLDIES SOUNDIES WITH MR CHARLIE BARNET & HIS ORCHESTRA ! Charles Daly Barnet (October 26, 1913 September 4, 1991) was an American jazz saxophonist, composer, and bandleader. His major recordings were Skyliner, Cherokee, The Wrong Idea, Scotch and Soda, and Southland Shuffle. Charlie Barnet was born in New York City. His parents divorced when he was two, and he was raised by his mother and her grandparents. His grandfather was Charles Frederick Daly, a vice-president for the New York Central Railroad, banker, and businessman. Barnet attended various boarding schools, both in the New York and Chicago areas. He learned to play piano and saxophone as a child. He often left school to listen to music and to try to gain work as a musician. Although he began his recording career in October, 1933, Charlie Barnet was at the height of his popularity between 1939 and 1941, a period that began with his hit version of Cherokee, written by Ray Noble and arranged by Billy May. In 1944, Barnet had another big hit with Skyliner. In 1947, he started to switch from swing music to bebop. During his swing period his band included Buddy DeFranco, Roy Eldridge, Neal Hefti, Lena Horne, Barney Kessel, Dodo Marmorosa, Oscar Pettiford, and Art House, while later versions of the band included Maynard Ferguson, Doc Severinsen, and Clark Terry. Trumpeter Billy May was an arranger in the Charlie Barnet Orchestra before he joined Glenn Miller in 1940. He was one of the first bandleaders to integrate his band; the year is variously given as 1935 or 1937. He was an outspoken admirer of Count Basie and Duke Ellington. In 1939, Basie once lent Barnet his charts after Barnet's had been destroyed in a fire at the Palomar Hotel in Los Angeles. Throughout his career he was an opponent of syrupy arrangements. In the song The Wrong Idea, he lampooned the sweet Big Band sound of the era. In 1949 he retired, apparently because he had lost interest in music. He was able to retire when he chose because he was one of the few heirs in a very wealthy family. He occasionally returned from retirement for brief tours but never returned to music full time.

  • 1939 Charlie Barnet - The Wrong Idea

    2:52

    Swing and sweat with Charlie Barnet! While hardly a mainstream ‘hit record’ upon release, this satirical Billy May arrangement which openly ridicules the styles of various popular ‘Mickey Mouse’ or ‘sweet band’ orchestras of the time remains well-known to many long-time record collectors and fans of that musical era.

    As for the title…the Barnet band had previously recorded the instrumentals “The Duke’s Idea” and “The Count’s Idea.” This particular session also yielded “The Right Idea.” Perhaps recorded as a joke not initially meant for public release, “The Wrong Idea” was eventually issued by Bluebird many months later in mid-1940.

    Issued on 78rpm: Bluebird B-10804 - The Wrong Idea (Billy May-Charlie Barnet) by Charlie Barnet & his Orchestra, spoken intro by Barnet, vocal by Billy May, recorded in Hollywood October 9, 1939

  • 1940 Charlie Barnet - The Breeze And I

    2:54

    Billy May arranged this version of the popular 1940 song hit which had been adapted by Toots Camarata from Ernesto’s Lecuona’s “Andalucia Suite.” The top-selling recording was by the Jimmy Dorsey band:

    LP audio, the 78rpm single was issued on Bluebird B-10696 - The Breeze And I (Stillman-Lecuona) by Charlie Barnet & his Orchestra, vocal by Mary Ann McCall, recorded in NYC April 23, 1940

    Check out the unusual label! Newcomer “Charles Barnett” had been recording for only a few months but was about to move up the ladder by signing with Victor’s Bluebird label. In the meantime, his early efforts were being produced by ARC, which distributed each title via several variously-named family labels concurrently.

    This particular track was also pressed on the (pictured) Fox Movietone label and made available for lobby sale in Fox movie theaters. The song “Baby Take A Bow” was performed in the Fox Film “Stand Up And Cheer” by James Dunn and rising young star Shirley Temple.

    From 78rpm Fox Movietone F-112 - Baby, Take A Bow (Brown-Gorney) by Charles Barnett & his Orchestra, vocal by Jackie Martin, recorded in NYC March 29, 1934
