Bozeman Daily Chronicle - Herb Alpert's Music Feels Both Classic and Fresh

β€œThe trumpet was making noise for me,” Alpert said. β€œIt was speaking for me.”

Bozeman Daily Chronicle |  By Rachel Hergett - November 14, 2014 - Trumpeter Herb Alpert’s latest album, “In the Mood,” may seem to have some very modern instrumentation that is incongruous to the musical legend’s well-known style. The take on “Chattanooga Choo Choo,” for example, starts with electronic beats and synthesizers before adding in a big band melody. But for Alpert, the music has always been evolving.

Chattanooga Choo Choo - (official video)

"The original well-known recording of ‘Chattanooga Choo-Choo’ was by the Glenn Miller Orchestra and was a No. 1 record for nine weeks in 1941," Alpert tells Billboard. "This song has a melody that I have always loved and often, out of nowhere, find myself whistling. My co-producer (Randy Badazz Alpert) and I wanted to create something very different, very cool and unique-sounding for our version of this classic song. We chose to mix electronic sounds and rhythms with orchestral strings. When I discovered that people were really liking this new record, I thought about maybe doing a video."

Billboard Magazine | By Chuck Dauphin - November 4, 2014 - The song enjoys as colorful of a history as Alpert -- a legendary instrumentalist-singer-record executive -- himself.

Chicagoland Concert & Event Review | By Matt Medlen - October 17, 2014 -  Northshore Center for the Performing Arts of Skokie was the scene for the evening’s sold-out concert with Herb Alpert and Lani Hall. This theater local is quietly set in among a hotel and other business. The Center theater is a wonderfully intimate space with 850+ seat between the main floor, balcony and 6 boxes. The highest seat in the house is a mere 88 feet from the stage. There is plenty of room, yet you still feel close to the action. The staff at the Northshore are first rate. They are eager to make your visit the best possible.
