At a Glance

With his intoxicating blend of pop, jazz and mariachi trumpets, Herb Alpert & the Tijuana Brass were a phenomenon in the 1960s, at one point selling more records than even The Beatles. This presentation traces the early years of his career, from a struggling musician operating out of his garage to pop music mogul and co-founder of A&M Records. A dramatic career that took off quickly in a matter of a few years.
