King Center Presents Herb Alpert & Lani Hall March 3rd

King Center for the Performing Arts

With over 72 million records sold, Herb Alpert’s legendary career includes five decades of unprecedented breakthroughs as an artist, record executive and philanthropist. In the past two years alone, he won his ninth GRAMMY® for 2013’s Steppin’ Out and received the National Medal of Arts from President Obama. As impressive as those accolades are, they may soon be overshadowed. Come Fly With Me, his latest studio album (to be released on September 25 via his own label, Herb Alpert Presents) is some of the best work of Herb Alpert’s career, rivaling his classic Tijuana Brass output. In the past year, Alpert composed seven original songs for the album, drawn from a diversity of musical influences, with inventive arrangements and lush orchestrations. His stirring new material is wonderfully complemented by fresh interpretations of some of the most indelible melodies of the 20th century. Known for her emotional vocal interpretations, Lani Hall helped propel “Sergio Mendes and Brasil ‘66” to international stardom with her distinctive vocals on the infectious Brasilian tune “Mas Que Nada.” Hall has enjoyed a distinguished solo career, having recorded some 14 solo albums. She sang the title song of the James Bond movie, “Never Say Never Again,” and won a Grammy for Best Latin Pop Performance for her album Es Facil Amar. She met Alpert while singing in an audition for A & M Records. They were married in 1973 and since then their lives and musical gifts have mingled.
