Herb Alpert & Lani Hall
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 (the latest from his 2014 album Steppin’ Out), 15 Gold albums, 14 Platinum albums, and over 72 million records sold. Herb Alpert & The Tijuana Brass propelled his sound into the pop music limelight, at one point outselling the Beatles two to one.
Two-time Grammy Award-winning vocalist and producer Lani Hall started her singing career in 1966 as the lead singer of Sergio Mendes’s breakthrough group Brasil ’66. Also in 1966, A&M Records signed Brasil ’66, and Lani met her future husband, music legend Herb Alpert. Herb and Lani married in 1973. Lani has the distinction of recording more than 22 albums in three different languages (English, Portuguese, and Spanish), and in 1983 she sang the title song for the James Bond film Never Say Never Again. Since 2006, Hall and Alpert have been touring with their band to sold-out audiences.
