This new release from Herb Alpert Presents is the definitive retrospective on the illustrious career of one of America's most unique musical voices, Herb Alpert! Containing 63 tracks culled from six decades of the trumpeter's classic recordings, Herb Alpert Is... is the perfect companion piece to the new 2020 feature length documentary of the same name.

Herb Alpert turned the Tijuana Brass into gold, earning 15 gold and 14 platinum records, winning nine Grammy Awards between 1966 and 2014, and receiving the National Medal of Arts from President Barack Obama in 2012.

Herb co-founded the indie label A & M Records with his business partner, Jerry Moss, which recorded artists as varied as Carole King, Cat Stevens, The Carpenters, Janet Jackson, Peter Frampton, Joe Cocker, Quincy Jones, Sergio Mendes, and The Police. A&M would go on to become one of the most successful independent labels in history. He has shown his striking work as an abstract painter and sculptor worldwide. And through the Herb Alpert Foundation he has given significant philanthropic support to educational programs in the arts nationwide, from the Harlem School of the Arts and Los Angeles City College to CalArts and UCLA.
