Creator and innovator, musician and producer, artist, and philanthropist, Herb Alpert is a man with a profound passion. A legendary trumpet player, Alpert’s extraordinary musicianship has earned him five #1 hits, nine GRAMMY® Awards, 15 Gold albums, and 14 Platinum albums. People have bought more than 72 million of his records.

Herb Alpert & The Tijuana Brass propelled his sound into the pop music limelight, at one point outselling the Beatles two to one. In 1966, they achieved the since-unmatched feat of simultaneously having four albums in the Top 10 and five in the Top 20. Herb Alpert also has the distinction of being the only artist who has had a #1 instrumental and vocal single.

Lani Hall, a Grammy Award-winning vocalist and producer, started her singing career in 1966 as the lead singer of Sergio Mendes’s group, Brasil ’66. She left behind her city roots in Chicago and for five years performed throughout the world.

While Hall’s singing career took her on the road, she also focused on writing about her personal impressions of the world around her. Sergio Mendes further expanded her writing career by asking Hall to write the English lyrics for many of the band’s Brazilian songs.
