EdgeMediaNetwork - Herb Alpert: His Life In Music Continues

Alpert spoke with EDGE about his astonishing career, which continues with a two-week run at The Café Carlyle alongside his wife, Grammy-winning vocalist Lani Hall, and band, from March 10-21.

Edgenewyork.com | By Kevin Scott Hall - March 6, 2015 - There are few American legends who can claim the scope of a career like Herb Alpert. Over his fifty-plus year career, he has amassed nine Grammy Awards, induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame (with co-founder of A&M Records, Jerry Moss), a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, and countless platinum and gold records.

Perhaps most famous for his string of hits in the '60s with the Tijuana Brass, Alpert also scored number one hits in 1968 ("This Guy's in Love With You") and 1979 ("Rise"), as well as a top ten hit with Janet Jackson ("Diamonds") in 1987. He has also been a successful composer (most notably, Sam Cooke's "Wonderful World"), record producer, Broadway producer, and noted philanthropist.

Afropop Worldwide - Interview - Going Places With Herb Alpert

afropop.org | By Banning Eyre - February 17, 2015 - Not long ago, I was walking down a street in Brooklyn and noticed a local resident had set out a few items on the curb. Front and center was a vinyl LP with a cover that instantly returned me to my childhood. It was Herb Alpert and the Tijuana Brass, Going Places, released in 1965 when I was 9 years old and nearing the height of my first full-blown musical infatuation. Ever since my mother first popped the Tijuana Brass’s debut LP The Lonely Bull onto the family Victrola, I’d been hooked. Going Places was a high point, not only because the song “Tijuana Taxi” seemed to crystallize the band’s sound as nothing before, but also because the album’s title captured the essence of the whole Tijuana Brass experience—music as a means to travel through time and space.

Mondello - February 4, 2015 - While he has been bestowed endless awards—nine Grammys, a presidential Medal of the Arts, enshrined in the Rock Hall of Fame—and has sold over 72 million records, Herb Alpert is a trumpet player at heart and an artist in his soul.

Huffingtonpost - Lani Hall's Audio Book, EMOTIONAL MEMOIRS, is Worth a Listen!

"When I read her EMOTIONAL MEMOIRS & Short Stories I was so emotionally blown away by the exceptional writing and storytelling"

Huffington Post January 26,  2015 | By Jay Weston - I have never before listened to an audio book. How Luddite is that of me? I am just old-fashioned enough to think that I needed to have the heft of a hardcover book in my hands to read it. To be honest I have never even read an e-book on my computer or iPad. And then I received the audio copy of a book which I had read and raved about last year....and in a reckless moment I put the disc into my car cd-player. Oh, my God, I was hooked!
