I Bought "Tutti's Trumpets" LP


Last week, we went to Brooklyn that there was a store on Court St. it's between 3rd and 4th Place, there was a thrift store that doesn't have signs. I came in and I found an LP called "Tutti's Trumpets" by Tutti Camarata. I bought it for $1.00. It was on the Time label, not Disneyland and Buena Vista. As you may know, the LP was released in 1957 on the Disneyland label long before Time Records re-released that album. Here is that pic.



Here is what the original LP cover looked like:



The LP has ten songs:

1. "Boy Meets Horn"
2. "I Can't Get Started"
3. "What's New"
4. "Trumpet Tango"
5. "Trumpet Soliloquy"
6. "Bugle Blues"
7. "Tenderly"
8. "Louis"
9. "Trumpeter's Prayer"
10. "Southland"

Those are the same exact songs from the original 1957 Disneyland release, Disney's second label, Buena Vista released again in the early 1960's features the same songs from the Disneyland LP. In the late 60's, it was also re-released on Time Records. This is what had happen, Time stole its original material from both Disneyland and Buena Vista and ended up releasing "Tutti's Trumpets". That was kinda dumb where Time copied the Disney LP's under the name. I have this pic of the label.



I hope that this original LP cover for "Tutti Trumpets" and others reissues will be part of the upcoming book "Mouse Tracks" which will be coming out in bookstores in April. If I can get it, I should take a look.
 
There were at least two other Buena Vista reissue covers for TUTTI'S TRUMPETS, which was a landmark recording in both Disney and jazz history. We don't have the covers pictured in MOUSE TRACKS, but we do provide an extended history of the LP, along with its sequel TUTTI'S TROMBONES.

The Time Records version may be legitimate, because Tutti Camarata apparently controlled the master recordings for TRUMPETS and he may have leased them to Time, which was a budget label that nonetheless issued several interesting albums with music by the great Billy May and Rankin/Bass musical director Maury Laws.

TUTTI'S TRUMPETS and TROMBONES was also reissued on CD on the Bainbridge label, and has again been reissued on an Avid UK CD that is available on amazon:

I know, I have the Time version but not the Buena Vsta version. In the mid to late 60's, Time Records released dozens of LP's of beautiful music under the name "Series 2000". I don't really know what Time Records exist?
 
I don't know a whole lot about Time Records except what I mentioned above, as far as a catalog list or anything, but I know they released several albums of movie themes, the score of the Broadway show DO-RE-MI, and something my Dad used to have called VIVA MEXICO!.

My guess is that it had some connection to Bainbridge or London Records, and was perhaps their budget label. At any rate, they're always popping up at thrift stores.
