Their have existed at least two labels called Tempo Records.
The first Tempo Records was a mid-20th century United States based record label, headquartered in Hollywood, California. It was run by Irving B. Fogel . This company worked with the Navy in the early 1960s.
There also existed a Tempo Records in the UK. This label was a jazz subsiduary of British Decca. This label had two periods of activity. In the late 'forties and early 'fifties musicians working in the revivalist idiom recorded for the marque. Recordings of this kind of jazz largely dried up after 1953. From about 1955, modernists such as Jimmy Deuchar, Tubby Hayes and Dizzy Reece were recorded. The last recording session took place in late 1960, and the label was subsequently wound up. The majority of the recordings by modern jazz musicians have been reissued on CD by Jasmine Records.
