The smooth exoticism of Herb Alpert

The face of a thousand used LPs, trumpeter Herb Alpert and the smooth exoticism of his Tijuana Brass ruled the '60s' tame underbelly, racking up eight Grammys and countless kitschy hits. He also co-founded a little label called A&M and gave us — to the delight of every teenage boy on the planet — the immortal album Whipped Cream (and Other Delights). These days Alpert is touring with his wife, Lani Hall, a singer who got her start in Sergio Mendes' Brasil '66. She now writes fiction, and Alpert is a working painter and sculptor, but they'll revisit their first love on Saturday, May 24, and Sunday, May 25, at Yoshi's. Admission is $28-$32; call 655-5600 or visit www.yoshis.com/sf.
