Tijuana Brass

tsunami pyramidIt's been my goal this year to post a blog and a video once a week. It's been going ok, but some weeks I get caught a bit short, like this week. But... working on a song for this week's video, I read about Herb Alpert and the Tijuana Brass. The guy is 86 and one of the most successful musicians of our time. He has sold 72 million records (14 albums went platinum). At one point he had an instrumental and a vocal #1 hit at the same time and outsold the Beatles. And, like the Beatles, what's not to like? Great songs, great band, great shows (alas, I never saw one). So I'm learning a Herb Alpert tune on ukulele. Olé!
