Herb Alpert And Sergio Mendes Play The Hollywood Bowl

The artists that built A&M Records in the mid-60’s, Herb Alpert and Sergio Mendes, came to the Hollwood Bowl last Wednesday with special guest, Alpert’s wife, Lani Hall.

Alpert and his Tijuana Brass and Mendes with Brasil ’66 brought A&M their initial success, building a label that would be the home of such greats as the Carpenters, Cat Stevens, Supertramp, the Captain and Tennille, Styx, Peter Frampton and Chuck Mangione.

Alpert and Hall opened the Hollywood Bowl show with a mix of newer jazz-based instrumentals, standards sung by Hall and the Tijuana Brass and solo hits that made Alpert famous as an artist.  Mendes followed with a set that relied on his legacy, although reviews say that he has added a rapper to the mix to try and update his sound.

The set lists:

Herb Alpert and Lani Hall
