Sale Price $252.00
Inscribed and signed photo, wearing a tux
Photograph inscribed and signed: "To Chares Silvia /Best Wishes/Charlie Barnet". B/w, 8x10. Captioned in lower margin. Jazz saxophonist, composer and band leader Charlie Barnet (1913-1991) began recording in 1933, and peaked in popularity in the years following release of his composition "Cherokee" (1939). Other Barnet hits included "Skyliner" and "Scotch and Soda." Barnet led a swing band, switching to a bebop style after 1947. An admirer of Basie and Ellington, Barnet was the first major band leader to integrate. He openly ridiculed the "sweet band" sound of some rival bands. Some band leaders like Glenn Miller imposed strict discipline, but Barnet's was known as a party band. He retired - wealthy - in 1949. Lightly creased at corners. Pencil note (unknown hand) on verso with minor show-through at upper right margin. Otherwise, fine condition.
