Title: Herb Alpert Documentary
Post by: Admin on October 01, 2020, 09:55:46 PM
Jan & Dean fans . . . Donít miss the new film titled ďHerb Alpert Is,Ē an incredible documentary on one of the most important musicians of the twentieth century. In partnership with Lou Adler, Herb Alpert produced Jan & Deanís first records between 1959 and 1961. While a lot of the parts on the early Jan & Dean records were done by Jan, Herb Alpert oversaw the arrangements in those early days, and he was one of Janís early influences. The film includes a brief Jan & Dean segment, with footage of ďBaby Talk,Ē but I encourage you to watch the whole thing. The hits with the Tijuana Brass, A&M Records, the man himself. Itís a tremendous presentation of Alpert as a producer, singer, virtuoso trumpet player, record company owner, painter, and sculptor. He is still writing, performing, and recording in his mid-eighties. What a life.

Really interesting. I will deliberately repeat a point I have made before about the limited videos / photos of the time. Nowadays rock / media stars (including Z listers) photograph everything.
Will your new biography be illustrated Mark?
