Watch: "Skyliner" by Charlie Barnet

Picture of Charlie Barnet

Today's video clip is "Skyliner" by Charlie Barnet and His Orchestra.  This Snader's Telescription was originally recorded in the early 1950's and Charlie delivers a fantastic version of one of his classics.

"Skyliner" is just one of the many Snader's Telescriptions Barnet took part in.  Others include: "Cherokee", "Andy's Boogie", "My Old Flame" and "Caravan". 

Take note of the production quality of this clip.  The majority of Soundies were usually done on a small budget and rushed.  Snader's Telecriptions were usually more thought out and the camera work was much better.  That being said, and as good as this clip is, I still prefer Soundies over Snaders for some reason.
