Herb Albert is probably one of the first artists I was crazy about with the Tijuana Brass.

I remember dancing over and over to “Taste of Honey”, which broke records as the number one song on Billboard more than once.  If I am in a “blah mood”, all I have to is turn on the remastered CD of  Herb’s “Whipped Cream” album on my ipod.  You just can’t listen to Herb Alpert and feel bad it’s just impossible.

My dad had everything he ever recorded up to the late 70’s anyhow….. on a 33 rpm and then CD.

“Whipped Cream”, “Tijuana Taxi”, “This Guy’s in Love “, and “Peanuts ” are to name just a few my favorites.

I never knew that Herb Alpert was a bronze sculptor for over 30 years and his works were showcased in Los Angeles. …close to where I used to live on Orange County.

I also didn’t know Herb Alpert had a foundation to help young children and promote the arts….until today when I searched him on Twitter and found his real page…and I began updating my knowledge with his latest albums and reading about the huge stars he discovered.

To Herb Alpert:
“Mr. Alpert, I hope you read this because I think someone as multi- talented as you is born once every millenium. You have added countless hours of Joy to my Life and you are still adding it as we speak.

It is just now I am a professional writer, photographer, and marketer. I used to teach piano over twenty years – and I began writing music when I was nine-years-old.

People in “Vegas” just don’t pay for piano lessons. They just show up with their kids and expect you to teach him for free!
