HERB ALPERT: HIS LIFE IN MUSIC CONTINUES
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.
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.
