About Herb Alpert
Born and raised in the entertainment epicenter of Los Angeles, California, Herb Alpert would be born into a family of artists that would set him down a musical path from a young age. Herb would choose to spend his early years studying and learning to play the trumpet, a welcome addition to his family lineup of musicians that already included talented players of the mandolin, violin, and percussions. Herb would not beeline straight for a musical career, and instead chose to join the Army in his youth, but would be inexorably drawn towards performance that would see him become a regular performer within the Armed Forces, spending more time with a mic on the stage than in a field with a gun. Herb would leave the Army and return to school, splitting his time between the illustrious University of Southern California while simultaneously trying to break it big in the mainstream entertainment industry as he picked up various gigs acting, singing, performing, and songwriting. Herb would slowly build momentum throughout Hollywood as he scored several small acting roles, and eventually signed onto Keen Records as a songwriter. His time at Keen would see him pen two mega hit singles, "Baby Talk" and "Wonderful World", which were performed and popularized by Jan and Dean and Sam Cooke, respectively.
Alpert's big break on the music scene wouldn't come until 1960, signing a vocalist deal with RCA Records that would be the first label to put his California fusion music style into action. His first single, "The Lonely Bull", would light up music charts across the board, eventually hitting the #6 position on the Billboard Hot 100 and cementing Herb as one of the premier California pop performers of the decade. Herb would form the group Tijuana Brass as the definitive vehicle to deliver his addictive Mexi-cali pop sounds to hungry fans across North America. The band would grow throughout the decade to become the most popular Mexi cali pop group the world over, with Herb losing no momentum into the 70s as he made his way to the Grammys, to pick up his first ever Grammy win. Three decades later, the Herb Alpert music phenomenon is still going strong as he rocks his way through 2015.
Herb Alpert & the Tijuana Brass dropped in 1962, the debut album of Herb's highly anticipated Mexi-cali brass band. The album would be a qualified mega success, with visionary producer Jerry Moss helping to sculpt the album that would garner a near perfect score from the critics at AllMusic. The album's laundry list of hits included the class Brass tracks "The Lonely Bull", "Mexico", and "A Quiet Tear".
Herb Alpert's Tijuana Brass was monumentally successful group, but their name was slightly disingenuous. None of the performing members were from Tijuana, nor were any of the members of remotely Mexican or even Latin heritage.
