Herb Alpert Artist Snapshot:

A fine trumpet player, hit-making bandleader, and co-founder of A&M records and later Almo Sounds (both with Jerry Moss), Herb Alpert found his greatest success as an artist during the 1960s. With his band the Tijuana Brass, Alpert created a unique easy-listening style (dubbed "Amerachi") that mixed elements of rock, swing, cool jazz, and pop, all with a distinctive Mexican/Mariachi tinge. His records sold millions of copies and were extremely influential to the '90s lounge revival.

Product Notes

In an era when elaborate wordplay and adventurous production were the order of the day, Herb Alpert made an impact barely uttering a word or breaking a mold, other than expanding the commercial parameters for pop instrumentalists. Dashing trumpeter Alpert and his Tijuana Brass scored five top-20 hits between 1962 (when "The Lonely Bull" climbed to No. 11 in the U.S.) and 1968 (when the vocal-driven "This Guy''s in Love with You" cracked the top 10), racking up five No. 1 albums over the same period. The group''s patented "Ameriachi" sound made up in south-of-the-border sprightliness what it lacked in innovation; the likes of "Spanish Flea" and "Casino Royale" possessed the kind of unshakable hooks that fit perfectly on top-40 radio sandwiched between Nancy Sinatra and the Mamas & the Papas. This 20-track overview serves up 13 selections from the Tijuana Brass''s heyday and is rounded up with seven Alpert solo selections, including comeback hits from 1979 ("Rise") and ''87 ("Diamonds"). --Steven Stolder
