Irving Bush

Irving Bush started his career playing with many top-name big bands, including ones led by Harry James and Nelson Riddle. He also worked in the studio orchestras at 20th Century Fox, MGM, Columbia, Paramount and Warner Bros., and he played on recordings by Frank Sinatra, Ella Fitzgerald, George Shearing, Sarah Vaughan and Nat King Cole. For several years, according to his family, he was the trumpet player Cole would call on first for a recording or engagement.

But in the early 1960s, Bush branched out into classical music and auditioned for the Los Angeles Philharmonic, joining the orchestra for the 1962-63 season and playing for 19 years, then staying on as personnel manager from 1982 until his retirement in 1995.

He recorded with the Columbia Broadcasting Symphony under the baton of Igor Stravinsky and participated in recordings for the Philharmonic with Zubin Mehta, Carlo Maria Giulini, Andre Previn and Michael Tilson Thomas conducting.

    Mike Claiborne

    Trumpet and Drums contains flawless interpretations by the late Irving Bush of some of our nation’s most beloved patriotic songs and folk classics. Originally recorded in 1976 to commemorate America’s Bicentennial, Mr. Bush delivers his warm tone via trumpet, flugelhorn, and piccolo trumpet. The passion that Irving Bush had for his instrument is evident in this project, as well as from the long and fruitful career that he enjoyed as one of L.A.’s premier brass men. It is fitting that SoundScapes would reissue such a project with the same care. After all, there is a family connection between Irving Bush and SoundScapes with a very interesting history as described in the liner notes. I was a youth when our nation celebrated its 200th and, for me Trumpet and Drum rekindles the memories of that exciting time.
