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!

My best friend in Las Vegas came to my place last night and we had a dinner of Chicken Tortellini Soup and crackers and enjoyed some flan for dessert. He had brought his classical guitar and played some pieces he wrote; it was the first time I ever heard him play. It was as though a more relaxed, happy man stepped from his soul. ..and I was his lucky audience.

Early in the evening I was playing Billy Joel songs like “She’s Always a Woman”, “New York State of Mind”, “Allentown”, and “Baby Grand”…..one I could relate to we’ll. Music was my first best friend at nine years old, and it has been my best since. Finally after moving my rosewood upright grand from California to Nevada, I can enjoy it.
I know that every time I am with my friend Leo, it is as though time passes so quickly and we always have fun.
He always knows the right thing to say to cheer me up if I need it, and genuinely cares about me. You can’t ask for more than that from a friend, can you…..
I had fun singing some songs I wrote when I was in high school. What I realized was I spend tons of time typing on my phone or computer and not enough time turning the sound off on it and creating a new song or simply playing. I feel like I got ten years younger doing what we did together, and want to play together, create chord charts to my compositions and me play to his.
ALWAYS MAKE TIME FOR WHAT YOU LIVE FOR AND WHAT YOU LOVE.

Have a beautiful day.

Like exposing myself to all styles of music. You should too.
When you do that you expose yourself to all kinds of cultures, all kinds of people, and it widens your perspectives, and broadens your horizons.
What are some of your favorite musical styles and why?
