Producer – Herb Alpert, Jerry Moss

In an era when elaborate wordplay and adventurous production were the order of the day, Herb Alpert made an impact barely uttering a word or breaking a mold, other than expanding the commercial parameters for pop instrumentalists. Dashing trumpeter Alpert and his Tijuana Brass scored five top-20 hits between 1962 (when "The Lonely Bull" climbed to No. 11 in the U.S.) and 1968 racking up five No. 1 albums over the same period.

Herb Alpert & the Tijuana Brass - A Taste of Honey

Video 1966

Great tune.

Outstanding instrumental and video

"A Taste of Honey," featuring three trumpet lines, is a complex, tempo-shifting piece that is both sensuous and playful. Throughout, Herb Alpert could smoothly integrate his own crystal-clear trumpet with crisp percussion, a distinctive rhythm guitar, a delicate marimba, or a droll, dulcet trombone. His music was one of a kind...
