✨✧ Herb AlpertChristmas Wish ... CD
Herb Alpert, 2017. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A nice little Holiday album from trumpeter Herb Alpert – whose 60s set with the Tijuana Brass might well be one of our favorite Christmas albums of all time! The TJB is long gone, but Herb's still in the lead – working with a larger orchestra directed by Chris Walden – who creates a shimmering array of strings, voices, and keyboards – all in an updated take of the older Herb Alpert sound – meaning that there's some nicely pointed moments that really fit the compressed, punchy horn sound that's always been Herb's calling card. The voices sometimes hit a more familiar Christmas chorus mode, but they're often then offset by Alpert's solo work – and titles include "I'll Be Home For Christmas", "The Christmas Song", "Santa Baby", "Winter Wonderland", "The Christmas Wish", "Merry Christmas Darling", and "What Are You Doing New Years Eve". Herb didn't remake "The Bell That Couldn't Jingle" – but his original 1968 version is maybe too perfect to mess with! (Holiday Music, Now Sound) CD

Herb AlpertSummertime ... LP
A&M, Late 60s. Very Good+ ... $6.99
Late 60s brilliance from the legendary Herb Alpert – one of a few key records that has him reinventing his style for a whole new generation! Herb name-checks Gil Evans, Miles Davis, and Ahmad Jamal in the notes – and he's definitely opening up the style of his arrangements here – to make room for all the wonderful changes in instrumental music that were taking place at the time. There's less of the fake Mexican-style sound of the early records – and more of that sublime blend of Brazilian, jazz, soundtrack, and singer/songwriter touches that marked the other A&M records of the period. The sound still has Herb's trumpet up front – but there's a lot more space in the arrangements – and titles include a great cover of Brian Wilson's "Darlin", plus "Summertime", Martha My Dear", "Catch A Falling Star", "The Nicest Things Happen","If You Could Read My Mind", and "Hurt So Bad". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Herb Alpert & OthersWhipped Cream & Other Delights – Re-Whipped ... CD
A&M/Shout Factory, 1960s/2006. Used ... Out Of Stock
A surprisingly great take on the Tijuana Brass sound of the 60s – one that offers up new remixes of classics, but which is nicely respectful of the original Herb Albert groove! Unlike other remix projects of this type, which sometimes clutter up the tracks with too many extra bits – or abstract the originals past the point of recognition – this one maintains the sense of space, time, and rhythm that Herb first brought to his work in the 60s, while also updating the tunes with a 21st Century aesthetic. Remixers include Medeski Martin & Wood, Mocean Worker, Thievery Corporation, John King (Dust Brothers), and Anthony Marinelli – and titles include "Whipped Cream", "Taste Of Honey", "Green Peppers", "Bittersweet Samba", "Peanuts", "Love Potion #9", and "Butterball".

A&M/Herb Alpert, 1968. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A beautiful Holiday classic from Herb – recorded for A&M during his glory years, and done in the core Tijuana Brass style, but with some added arrangements on voices and strings by Shorty Rogers! The album's worth it alone for Herb's great take on the Bacharach groover "The Bell That Couldn't Jingle" – but it also includes the tasty track "Las Mananitas", plus the holiday favorites "Winter Wonderland", "Jingle Bells", "The Christmas Song", "Sleigh Ride", "Let It Snow, Let It Snow, Let It Snow" and "Jingle Bell Rock". 10 tracks in all, the perfect backdrop for the holiday office party!

Herb Alpert & The Tijuana BrassGoing Places ... LP
A&M, 1965. Near Mint- ... $5.99
Herb Alpert's definitely Going Places by the time of this set – and his trademark Tijuana Brass sound proves itself to be a great fit for just about any sort of number! The album kicks off with the wonderful "Tijuana Taxi", a sublimely jaunty tune that almost takes Herb into Bacharach territory – and which is followed up by the even-greater "Spanish Flea" – an ear-popping anthem that's one of the greatest bits of 60s instrumental pop ever recorded! And over and above those two tunes, the album's still got plenty more to offer too – a wonderful array of tracks all given the Tijuana touch, with titles that include "More & More Amor", "Mae", "Walk Don't Run", "Felicia", and "Cinco De Mayo". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Herb Alpert & The Tijuana BrassLonely Bull ... CD
A&M/Shout Factory, 1962. Used ... Out Of Stock
Herb Alpert's first-ever album – a runaway hit that was the birthplace of so many groovy things – not just the start of the Tijuana Brass sound, also the birth of A&M Records! The album's the first to feature Herb's trademark take on the Mexican band style – done here with a bit more "jaunty" pop stylings than in later years, including a "rocking" electric bass that kicks along nicely at the bottom of some of the more chart-oriented tunes. The first full album on A&M – and the beginning of an empire – with titles that include "The Lonely Bull", "El Lobo", "Desafinado", "Mexico", "Never On Sunday", and "Struttin With Maria". CD

✨✧ Herb Alpert & The Tijuana BrassLost Treasures – Rare & Unreleased ... CD
A&M/Herb Alpert Presents, 1960s. New Copy ... Just Sold Out!
Genius, pure genius – a wonderful collection of 22 rare numbers by Herb Alpert & The Tijuana Brass – all recorded during the group's years at A&M Records, and including a number of previously unreleased tunes! The sound here is completely sublime – way more than just the simple themes that you might expect from the TJB at the time, especially since there's a fair bit of numbers from Herb's late 60s years, when he was really opening into a wider range of modes explored by A&M Records on their Bacharach, Brazilian, soundtrack, and singer-songwriter releases. The whole thing's a key treasure in our 60s collection of instrumental pop – one that fills in a space we didn't even know we had! Titles include "Alone Again (Naturally)", "Julius & Me", "Happy Hour", "Promises Promises", "Whistlestar", "Killing Me Softy", "Chris", "Popcorn", "Flowers On The Wall", and "Up Cherry Street". CD

Herb Alpert & The Tijuana BrassSounds Like Herb Alpert & The Tijuana Brass ... LP
A&M, 1967. Near Mint- ... $6.99
Sounds like Herb Alpert, but it grooves in ways that we hardly expected – playful, creative, and filled with so many more rhythms than just the Tijuana groove we might have thought! There's a real deepening sense of instrumental pop going on here – as Herb explores some of the darker strains brought into the market by younger groups and artists on the scene, and through some of the cross-cultural recordings that were opening up as the global music market expanded in the mid 60s. The Brass still get in plenty of their jaunty licks in the set, but there's also more of a sense of Herb as a standout man of his own – a mature, all-adult sound that's got some great brooding emotion from time to time. Titles include the great sample cut "Treasure Of San Miguel", "Casino Royale", "Wade In The Water", "Shades Of Blue", "Bo Bo", "Lady Godiva", "Town Without Pity", "Gotta Lot Of Livin To Do", and "The Charmer". LP, Vinyl record album
(Tan label stereo pressing. Includes the Herb Alpert inner sleeve. Cover has clear tape inside the opening, in fantastic shape otherwise.)

✨✧ Herb Alpert & The Tijuana BrassSRO ... LP
A&M, 1966. Very Good+ ... $5.99
A standing room ovation in the A&M Studios – certainly the kind of reception we'd imagine Herb would get during these glory years of his career! The set's one of the most no-nonsense Tijuana Brass sessions of the 60s – a tightly crafted album that has a bit more jazz than usual sneaking in on some of the tunes, but still enough of that snapping, punchy rhythmic approach that makes Herb and the group so great! As usual, the fluidity here is the strongest point – as the A&M touch takes a sound that should be hokey, and flips it into something really really groovy through warm use of compression in the studio. Titles include "Blue Sunday", "Bean Bag", "Work Song", "Our Day Will Come", "Mexican Road Race", and "Freight Train Joe". LP, Vinyl record album

Herb Alpert & The TJBYou Smile – The Song Begins ... LP
A&M, 1974. Near Mint- ... $7.99
Nice one from Herb Alpert & The Tijuana Brass – working with arranger Quincy Jones! You Smile – The Song Begins comes at a pretty interesting point in which Herb was still working in the Spanish-inflected, jazzy instrumental groove of earlier years – but in a fresh way after a few quiet years. He's also starting to bring in the tighter, soul-based rhythmic sensibility he would more fully explore in the years to come! Bright, wonderful work – with a Bacharach arrangement on "I Might Frighten Her Away", Lani Hall vocals on "Save The Sunlight", and loads of great tunes including "Fox Hunt", "Legend Of The One Eyed Sailor", "Promises, Promises", "Last Tango In Paris", "Alone Again (Naturally)", "Dida" and more.

Julius Wechter & The Baja Marimba BandThose Were The Days ... LP
A&M, 1969. Near Mint- ... $9.99
A set that may well be the grooviest album ever cut by Julius Wechter & The Baja Marimba Band – and a set that goes way past their initial style, into a range of sweet late 60s A&M modes! There's definitely a lot of Sunshine Pop in the mix here – right from the vocal harmonies on the start of the album, arranged nicely by the great Nick DeCaro – whose presence on the record is felt throughout, in a range of groovy late 60s touches! Wechter still brings in some of his trademark marimba – his faux-Mexican approach that was similar to Herb Alpert's trumpet – but like Herb at this point, he's going way past the usual – on tunes that include "Flyin High", "Those Were The Days", "Peru 68", "Elenore", "Happening To Me", and "Knowing When To Leave". LP, Vinyl record album
(Stereo pressing.)
