Charlie was born in New Haven in 1906. He played with Paul Specht's orchestra in the late 1920s and later played with others such as Ben Pollack, Ray Noble, Tommy Dorsey. He married his girl singer, Irene Daye. With his muted trumpet style he was introduced as the "Sweetest Trumpet of Charlie Spivak" and was often compared with Harry James as to who played the best horn.
