Herb Alpert and Lani Hall in concert
A legendary trumpet player, Alpert's extraordinary musicianship has earned him five No. 1 hits, nine Grammy Awards, 15 Gold albums, 14 Platinum albums and has sold over 72 million 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. He continues to perform and tour across the country with his wife, Grammy-winning singer, Lani Hall.
Hall started her singing career in 1966, as the lead singer of Sergio Mendes's breakthrough group, Brasil '66. She left behind her city roots in Chicago and, for five years, performed throughout the world and wrote the English lyrics for many of the band's Brazilian songs. She has the distinction of recording more than 22 albums in three different languages.
