Herb Alpert’s extraordinary, eclectic career has spanned over fifty years in the music business so far.
As trumpeter, arranger and composer, he’s sold over 72 million albums and earned nine Grammy awards. In his role as co-founder of A&M Records, he facilitated the careers of countless other stars, while establishing one of the premier artist-driven labels. His philanthropy touches countless lives as well, including a recent bequest to Los Angeles City College that fully funds tuition and lessons for music majors. After securing yet another Grammy nomination for his new release, Human Nature, he’s on tour with his wife, Grammy-winning vocalist Lani Hall. They’ll perform at the Shedd in Eugene on Friday, January 27th.
