Salvador Tutti Camarata started working for Walt Disney's record operation in 1956. He was the Musical Director and Artists and Repertoire Chief. He also assembled and conducted an orchestra for recording purposes. A 1958 album entitled Hi-Ho highlighted the singing talents of Mary Martin, accompanied by Camarata's orchestra.
