Creator and innovator, musician and producer, artist, and philanthropist, Herb Alpert is a man with a profound passion.
A legendary trumpet player, Alpert's extraordinary musicianship has earned him five #1 hits, nine GRAMMY® Awards, the latest from his 2014 album, "Steppin' Out," fifteen Gold albums, fourteen Platinum albums and has sold over 72 million records. Herb Alpert & The Tijuana Brass propelled his sound into the pop music limelight, at one point outselling the Beatles two to one. In 1966, they achieved the since-unmatched feat of simultaneously having four albums in the Top 10 -- and five in the Top 20. Herb Alpert also has the distinction of being the only artist who has had a #1 instrumental and vocal single.
Some of Herb Alpert and the Tijuana Brass' fourteen Top 40 singles include; The Lonely Bull, Mexican Shuffle, Spanish Flea and the GRAMMY®-winners "A Taste Of Honey" and "What Now My Love," and the #1 hits "This Guy's In Love With You" and "Rise." Shout! Factory recently released deluxe re-masters of the entire TJB catalogue plus Lost Treasures, a compilation of vintage rarities, and Rewhipped, featuring hot remixes of every track from Whipped Cream & Other Delights. In all, Alpert has recorded over thirty albums and produced for many other artists, including Sergio Mendes & Brasil '66, Stan Getz, Michel Colombier, Gato Barbieri, and Alpert's wife, GRAMMY winning vocalist Lani Hall, to name a few.
Grammy Award-winning vocalist and producer, Lani Hall started her singing career in 1966, as the lead singer of Sergio Mendes's break through group, Brasil '66. She left behind her city roots in Chicago and, for 5 years, performed throughout the world. While Lani's singing career took her on the road, she also focused on her writing -- committing to the page her personal impressions of the world around her. Sergio Mendes further expanded her writing career by asking Lani to write the English lyrics for many of the band's Brazilian songs.
