Herb Alpert & the Tijuana Brass

I just rescued this LP from my mom's attic.  What a great album! Here's some of it.

 I haven't seen this yet - but there's a new documentary about him as well:

I also noticed a bunch of his art work in Palm Springs:

A big fan of Herb Alpert and TJB. As a young trumpet player in the 60's, it was cool to be able to relate to one of the most popular artists at the time.

Thanks for the tip on the doc. Didn't know about that. Alpert has had an amazing life.

As for albums, I kind of lusted after this one for a long time.  confused


Wow. Cool stuff, indeed. 


Anyone who knows my musical tastes (as varied as they are) would laugh their socks off to find out that my number 1 played artist on Spotify this year was Herb Alpert and the Tijuana Brass. This year is completely sideways.


I saw the documentary - they did a good job with it.  I felt dumb not knowing that the A in A & M Records was Alpert.


Big fan since I was a kid.

 You have gone up 100  points in my book.

 And yet, none of his songs are in my top 5 songs.


My mother’s music. She also loved Fausto Papetti, Kenny G, and Floyd Cramer... I gave away all those lp’s a long time ago. 


Herb Albert was the reason I started learning to play the trumpet when I was a kid. My own laziness was the reason I stopped only three years later.


I am currently reading a biography of Sam Cooke. Herb Albert and his buddy Lou Adler worked briefly with Cooke when they were budding young producers and Cooke was hitting his stride as a soul/pop singer. All three went on to become major players in their various efforts of performance, songwriting and production.

 Isn't Alpert one of the tastiest of trumpet players? He has such a light, delicate touch.
