Soundie: Skylark by Sonny Dunham

Picture of Sonny Dunham

Today's Soundie features Sonny Dunham and His Orchestra performing their version of "Skylark".  This was released to Panoram in June of 1942 and is just one of eight Soundies put out by this respected trumpeter.  The vocal are handled by the beautiful Harriett Clark, who seems to be quite relaxed while performing her singing duties.  Look for the superimposed caption that identifies Sonny Dunham during his solo.


Watch: Sonny Dunham and His Orchestra perform "Skylark" from 1942.
