HERB ALPERT FOLLOWS 2014 GRAMMY WIN WITH NEW ALBUM
Trumpet icon with 72 million records sold returns with diverse array of

After winning his ninth Grammy earlier this year and being honored by President Obama with the National Medal of Arts in 2013, “trumpet legend” (Wall Street Journal) Herb Alpert released a new album entitled ‘In The Mood’ on September 30 via Shout! Factory. The new album sees Alpert playing a diverse array of standards and originals, including covers of The Everly Brothers and a reinterpretation of “America The Beautiful.” Accompanying the album release is an extensive American tour with his wife, Grammy® Award–winning singer Lani Hall, who joins Alpert on five songs on the album.
When talking about his recent success, Alpert remains humble. “Making music is a natural thing for me to do,” he says. “I love melodies from old standards and I try to present them in a way that hasn’t been heard quite that way before.” ‘In The Mood’ includes covers of two classic Everly Brothers’ tracks, recorded in response to Phil Everly’s death earlier this year. Alpert even revisits his old Tijuana Brass repertoire on two songs, “Spanish Harlem” and “Let It Be Me,” injecting them with a new adventurous spirit. And on album–closer “America The Beautiful,” Alpert employs percussion from all seven continents to “reflect the melting pot” of the United States.
“Few people can claim to be a Renaissance man in this complex age, but Herb Alpert might be one of them,” says The New York Times. And few can rival Alpert’s staggering resume: as a solo artist and as the leader of the Tijuana Brass, he has sold over 72 million records, and placed 28 albums in the Billboard 200, including five #1s. He has scored 14 platinum and 15 gold albums, and is the only artist ever to reach #1 on the Billboard Hot 100 as both a vocalist and instrumentalist. At one point Alpert and the Tijuana Brass simultaneously had four albums in the Top 10.
Aside from his impressive career as a musician, he is one of the founders of A&M Records where he worked with such varied artists as The Carpenters, Cat Stevens, Janet Jackson, and The Police, and in 2006 was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. He’s also an acclaimed painter and sculptor with works in the permanent collection at the Museum of Contemporary Art in Los Angeles, a Tony Award–winning producer (‘Angels in America’), and a philanthropist who has donated over $130 million towards arts education through his Herb Alpert Foundation.
