This is not a catalog. This is a discographical tool for researchers. I have no idea how to obtain these records.

TP-18 is credited to “George Jenkins & His All Stars With Plas Johnson” but features only the name and picture of Johnson on the front cover.
The Oscar Moore Trio (TP-22) was apparently issued as Skylark 19, the cover of which is reproduced on the V.S.O.P. facsimile.
TP-34 was apparently issued as Dig J101, Tanganyika, the cover of which is reproduced on the V.S.O.P. facsimile.
The facsimile of LP-11 also lists “Tampa 25” as a catalog number and a different cover exists (on the CD issue).

SA-100 is called on the back cover “Double Sampler” (Hi-Fi and Jazz) and is identical to TP-11.
This is a most peculiar label. Titles vary from front cover to back cover to spine to label. Sometimes leaders are named, sometimes not. The distinction between the TP and LP series is important, although the V.S.O.P. reissuers seem to ignore this on occasion.
I have held original Tampa Lp issues of bold numbers. I have held V.S.O.P. facsimile Lps of italic numbers. Other entries are supplied by contributors.
Confirmation and input needed on virtually all of these issues.

Art Pepper Tampa RS 1001 is the same as Tampa TP 20. Exactly the same cover and contents. Some dealers have claimed that 1001 is the earlier issue thought I don’t believe it. I think TP 20 is the original. In general the original Tampa issues come in two editions. The first edition has red vinyl and a black label. The 2nd edition has regular black vinyl and a pink label. (Red-vinyl black-label editions sell for much higher prices).

Tampa 13, 14, 17, 23, 26 appear to have alternate titles used in other printings of the same LPs.
At least for 23 I have seen both covers: Jazz For Relaxation has a naked girl, whereas the Hot Piano Feat. M. Paich version has a cartoon-like drawing instead.
– François Ziegler
The V.S.O.P. CD used the Jazz For Relaxation title and cover while the V.S.O.P. Lp used the “Hot Piano” title and cover.
