In an era when elaborate wordplay and adventurous production were the
order of the day, Herb Alpert made an impact barely uttering a word or
breaking a mold, other than expanding the commercial parameters for pop
instrumentalists. Dashing trumpeter Alpert and his Tijuana Brass scored
five top-20 hits between 1962 (when "The Lonely Bull" climbed to No. 11
in the U.S.) and 1968 (when the vocal-driven "This Guy's in Love with
You" cracked the top 10), racking up five No. 1 albums over the same
period. The group's patented "Ameriachi" sound made up in
south-of-the-border sprightliness what it lacked in innovation; the
likes of "Spanish Flea" and "Casino Royale" possessed the kind of
unshakable hooks that fit perfectly on top-40 radio sandwiched between Nancy Sinatra and the Mamas & The Papas.
This 20-track overview serves up 13 selections from the Tijuana Brass's
heyday and is rounded up with seven Alpert solo selections
