Herb Alpert – ‘What A Wonderful World’

There must be very few people who’ve not at least heard of Herb Alpert. The Grammy award winning trumpeter, singer, and songwriter has had a career of more than 60 years, and has reached the number one spot on the album charts no fewer than five times with his band, the Tijuana Brass. Love, joy and creativity have always been the primary motivators in Alpert’s life, and behind his work as one of the founders of A&M Records, and they’re also pivotal to his mission with the Herb Alpert Foundation.
