In 1992 Bainbridge Records released Brass Menagerie: Big Band Brass of the Sixties, a selection of tracks from the catalogue of Time Records. Bainbridge re-released a lot of the output of Time, a label that was much favoured by stereophiles in the 1960s.
Brass Menagerie included tracks from the orchestras of Jerry Fielding, Jim Tyler, Hugo Montenegro and Mel Davis. One of the selections from Fielding was the Dixieland warhorse When the Saints Go Marching In, which first appeared on his 1961 Time LP Magnificence in Brass. (To hear a selection from Mel Davis, visit this previous post.)

Fielding's take on Saints is certainly unique, containing elements of big band, Dixieland and exotica. The MP3 is taken from a cassette version of Brass Menagerie, so there's a fair amount of tape hiss.
When the Saints Go Marching In
Magnificence in Brass and Near East Brass, another Fielding LP from the 1960s, are favoured by exotica enthusiasts. Fielding became a sought after soundtrack composer, receiving Oscar nominations for The Wild Bunch (1969), Straw Dogs (1971) and The Outlaw Josey Wales (1976).
Fielding died of a heart attack in 1980 while in Toronto scoring the cheap horror flick Funeral Home. He was 57.
Here's another track from Magnificence in Brass. This is also on the Brass Menagerie CD.
