Herb Alpert Herb Alpert

Herb Alpert's persistent artistic vision reverberates as one note comprised of three simultaneous chords: curiosity, integrity and excellence. Creator and innovator, musician and producer, artist and entrepreneur, Herb Alpert is one of this generation's true Renaissance Men, a man with a profound passion empowering his every endeavor.

An extraordinary musician, Alpert's trumpet playing earned him five #1 hits, eight Grammy Awards, fifteen Gold albums and fourteen Platinum albums. Herb Alpert and The Tijuana Brass propelled Latino music into the pop music limelight, at one point outselling the Beatles two to one. Through commitment to artists with personal vision, Alpert (along with partner Jerry Moss) guided A&M Records from a humble Hollywood garage operation into the largest independently owned record company in the world. Great performers such as Carole King, Cat Stevens, Styx, Supertramp, The Carpenters, Sting and Janet Jackson are evidence of the consistent quality and diversity of the A&M Records family. One bold, brilliant sound with many different simultaneous chords.

Refusing to limit himself, Herb Alpert has utilized his genius to explore other artistic ventures. During the last two decades, Alpert has emerged as a talented abstract expressionist painter with international exhibitions. His canvasses are characterized by flowing shapes, bold brushstrokes and exploding colors. Alpert has also chosen to involve himself in the world of Broadway theatre. His producing credits include the Tony Award/Pulitzer Prize winning production of Tony Kushner's “Angels in America.” He also co-produced “Jelly's Last Jam,” Arthur Miller's “Broken Glass,” and August Wilson's “Seven Guitars.”

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary step that will help musicians and venues now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the sticky footer ad). Thank you!
