AT FESTIVAL OF THE ARTS BOCA: ALPERT, ‘RAIDERS’ WOW BIG CROWDS
By Dale King
Herb Alpert’s still got it.
At age 80 — 81 as of March 31 — Herb Alpert, the legendary master of trumpet, has been a performer, composer, arranger, songwriter, singer, record producer, record executive, record company co-founder, painter and sculptor.
But the audience that took up nearly every seat at the Mizner Park Amphitheater in Boca Raton this past Sunday night wanted to hear tunes from the songbook of the celebrated Tijuana Brass that Alpert fronted during much of the 1960s and 1970s.
