Charlie Spivak & His Orchestra

b. 17 February 1907, Kiev, Ukraine, d. 1 March 1982, Greenville, North Carolina, USA. Spivak learned to play trumpet as a small child growing up in the USA. In his mid-teens he joined Paul Specht’s orchestra where he remained until 1930, moving on to the Ben Pollack band. Later, he was with the Dorsey Brothers orchestra, artists such as Ray Noble, Raymond Scott, Bob Crosby and Jack Teagarden, and also played in the New York studios. In 1939 he formed his own big band which, after a shaky start, became very successful. Thereafter, with only a short break through illness, he led the band for much of the next four decades. A skilled trumpeter, on the sweeter side of the swing era, Spivak’s musical longevity owes much to his ability to see what the public wanted and then make sure that he delivered. His last residency, in Greenville, South Carolina, began in 1967 and continued until shortly before his death in 1982.

We high school boys sat in the corner room of the dorm at night and played the big bands. Spivak was one of the bands. The corner room' was in the highlands of Kenya..... a missionary kids' boarding school...... circa 1958. We thought Elvis and he Everley Brothers were a bit weird. Glenn Miller was the top band of choice. I admit it, I am a British colonial era freak.

That's why we call it the greatest generation.

My parents sang in the featured vocal Group called The Stardreamers . When my mom Margaret Manning and my dad Chick Gale toured with Spivak it was between 1946-47 and them my dad joined the Skylarks and traveled with them and both Harry James and Jimmy Dorsey Bands until 1948.
