Herb alpert the dating game

Sol Lake — who provided Alpert “The Lonely Bull” and “Mexican Shuffle” returns, and this time he has custom-made the upbeat and, above all, catchy trio of “Green Peppers,” “Bittersweet Samba,” and “El Garbanzo.” Allen Toussaint‘s title composition “Whipped Cream” garnered significant attention, but not as a chart hit.Rather, it could be heard as bachelorettes were being introduced on ABC-TV’s The Dating Game.Pisano, who debuted as a composer on Going Places, comes up with a memorably whistleable song, “So What’s New,” and the rest of Alpert‘s songwriting brigade (Ervan Coleman, Julius Wechter, and Sol Lake) chime in with some lively, catchy tunes.

Herb Alpert also has the distinction of being the only artist who has had a #1 instrumental and vocal single.Creator and innovator, musician and producer, artist, and philanthropist, Herb Alpert is a man with a profound passion.Born in Los Angeles, the future trumpeter came of age in a house filled with music.Alpert‘s family of sidemen and composers were busy generating their own catchy hits, like Wechter‘s deadly, infectious “Spanish Flea,” and the tragically short-lived Ervan Coleman‘s wonderfully goofy “Tijuana Taxi.” The bossman’s trumpet could be joyous, mocking, and melancholy in turns, and his choices of tunes totally unpredictable; who else would dare juxtapose “The 3rd Man Theme,” “Walk, Don’t Run,” “I’m Getting Sentimental Over You,” and “Zorba the Greek” on one record?No other TJB record has as much unbuttoned fun and humor as this one — and not surprisingly, it spent six weeks at number one in 1966.
