Herb AlpertRise ... LP
A&M, 1979. Near Mint- ... $11.99
A whole new level of genius for Herb Alpert – a record that's light years away from his earlier work with the Tijuana Brass, and which has the trumpeter stepping strongly into the world of smooth jazzy fusion! The title track here went platinum the minute it was released – and became an end-of-the 70s instrumental anthem that seemed to drift out of speakers around the country. The rest of the album's pretty great too – built on the modes explored by Donald Byrd, Freddie Hubbard, and other soulful fusion players of the 70s – but cast out with a bit more drama overall. Titles include the seminal jazz dance classic "Rotation" – plus "Rise", "Street Life", "Aranjuez (Mon Amour)", "1980", "Angelina", and "Love Is". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Herb Alpert & OthersWhipped Cream & Other Delights – Re-Whipped ... CD
A&M/Shout Factory, 1960s/2006. Used ... $9.99
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".

Herb Alpert & The Tijuana BrassBeat Of The Brass ... LP
A&M, 1968. Near Mint- Gatefold ... $7.99
Beautifully compressed pop from Herb Alpert – a session that's still got the traditional Tijuana Brass style, but which also displays a more restrained, more adult approach to instrumental pop! The rhythms are nicely changed out more than before here – stretching out with interwoven exotic touches and sweeter A&M pop – all coming together at a level that's far more sophisticated than you might guess if you've only got a version of Herb that's reduced to simple cliche! Herb also makes a key vocal appearance on the song "This Guy's In Love With You" – the group's first #1 single, and the beginning of a great run of Alpert vocalizations. Other tracks include "The Robin", "Slick", "Panama", "A Beautiful Friend", "She Touched Me", and "Thanks For The Memory". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Herb Alpert & The Tijuana BrassHerb Alpert's Ninth ... LP
A&M, 1967. Near Mint- ... $7.99
Wonderfully jaunty and jagged work from trumpeter Herb Alpert – and a session that has him opening up the Tijuana Brass groove a bit more than usual! There's clearly an influence here of the Brazilian sound that was showing up strongly at A&M Records at the time – heard to greatest effect on the album's version of Chico Buarque's "A Banda", but also in gentler, more subtle ways that seem to emerge in other tunes that trade the group's older sound for one that has more of a bossa sense of subtlety. Also, there's some great A&M pop that's beginning to emerge here too – as in the album's great takes on "The Happening" and "Love So Fine" – both of which really sound beautiful here! Other tracks include "Cowboys & Indians", "Flea Bag", "Love Nest", and "Bud". LP, Vinyl record album
(Brown label stereo pressing. Includes the A&M inner sleeve.)

✨✧ Herb Alpert & The Tijuana BrassLonely Bull ... CD
A&M/Shout Factory, 1962. Used ... Just Sold Out!
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
(Out of print Signature Series edition. Front cover has a crease.)

✨✧ Herb Alpert & The Tijuana BrassLost Treasures – Rare & Unreleased ... CD
A&M/Herb Alpert Presents, 1960s. New Copy ... $12.99 13.98
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 BrassWarm ... LP
A&M, Late 60s. Near Mint- ... $7.99
A fantastic record from the late 60s years of Herb Alpert – a time when the trumpeter was really opening up his sound, and starting to hit some of the same cool styles of his other great acts on the A&M label! Gone are the trademark Cali-Mex arrangements of the early Tijuana Brass records – and in their place are these soaring, soulful styles that draw heavily from the late 60s changes in Brazilian music, American soundtracks, and jazz! Shorty Rogers helped a bit with the charts, and you can definitely hear his cool touches in the mix – and the trumpet solos are nicely changed up from previous records too. Herb does a great job with Nilsson's excellent cut "Without Her", and the band grooves nicely on Brazil cuts "The Sea Is My Soil" and "Zazueira", plus "Pretty World", "To Wait For Love", "Sandbox", "Marjorine", and "The Continental".

✨✧ Herb Alpert & The Tijuana BrassWhipped Cream & Other Delights (with bonus tracks) ... CD
A&M/Shout Factory, 1965. Used ... Just Sold Out!
Trumpety magic from Herb Alpert & The Tijuana Brass – a record that's known not only for its classic cover of a model dipped in whipped cream, but also for it's tremendously groovy groove! The Tijuana sound is very firmly in place by the time of this set – Mexican-inspired, but compressed down into a sweet little LA groove in that magical A&M way – never too over the top, done in a way that takes a previously-hokey brassy sound, and smoothes it out for the Now Sound generation! Titles include the hit single "Whipped Cream", plus "Taste Of Honey", "Green Peppers", "Bittersweet Samba", "Lemon Tree", "Ladyfingers", and "Butterball". Includes the bonus tracks "Rosemary" and "Blueberry Park". CD

A&M, 1965. Very Good+ ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
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".

✨✧ Herb Alpert & The Tijuana BrassSounds Like Herb Alpert & The Tijuana Brass ... LP
A&M, 1967. Near Mint- ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
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".

✨✧ Herb Alpert & The Tijuana BrassSouth Of The Border ... LP
A&M, 1963. Very Good+ ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Herb Alpert's going South Of The Border again in another marvelous set of modern mariachi tunes – taking that wonderful Tijuana Brass sound, and turning it towards a number of familiar hits of the day! There's equal parts 60s instrumental pop and Latin groove in the mix – and the punctuated yet compressed Alpert production really hits some sublime moments. Herb's really finding his own sound here – not just the one that would be used on other Tijuana Brass albums, but also on the genius to come from A&M! Titles include "Girl From Ipanema", "Up Cherry Street", "Mexican Shuffle", "El Presidente", "All My Loving", and "Numero Cinco". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Herb Alpert & The TJBYou Smile – The Song Begins ... LP
A&M, 1974. Near Mint- ... Out Of Stock
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.

✨✧ Pete JollyHerb Alpert Presents Pete Jolly ... LP
A&M, Late 60s. Near Mint- ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
One of the finest A&M records of the sixties, and one of the finest records that Pete Jolly ever cut – a fantastic little session that blends his sprightly piano with fuller backings by Marty Paich – jazzy, but also sweepingly wonderful – and presented here with a great balance between spaciousness and fullness! Pete's work on the acoustic piano has never been better – and the album features a sublime version of "Windows of the World", plus loads of other great tunes that "Serenata", "Dindi", "Love So Fine", and "For Carl". A record that never fails to delight us! LP, Vinyl record album
(Original brown label pressing – in great shape!)

A surprisingly nice album for A&M, and one in which Letta's funky African soul style gets a bit more of an LA studio sound. The record features backing by a lot of well-known funky studio players, and Herb Alpert produced the record with a nice sound that still keeps Letta's rich voice in front. Titles include "Tristeza", "Sacred Drum", "Maru A Pula", "Feelings", and "Rainy Day Music". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Merry ClaytonBeautiful Scars ... LP
Motown/Ode, 2021. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A really strong return to form for the legendary Merry Clayton – an album recorded in the wake of an accident that nearly took her life, and seemed to unlock a whole new level of spirituality in her music – presented here on an album that's the first we've seen in Motown's gospel series in quite a long time! That placement is fitting, though, as the presentation here is very classic – maybe not 70s styled, but more in the 90s blend of gospel and soul used by a few key artists who had huge crossover success – spearheaded here by Lou Adler and Terry Young in the studio, the latter of whom plays organ on the record – amidst other instrumental work that includes a trumpet solo from Herb Alpert, two tenor solos from Gerald Albright, and an unusual posthumous solo from 1971 from Curtis Amy. Merry's clearly the star of the show, though – soaring out with her legendary vocal charms – on titles that include "Room At The Altar", "He Made A Way", "A Song For You", "Beautiful Scars", "Love Is A Mighty River", and the "Ooh Child Medley".
