All Music Guide - Richard S. Ginell
Herb Alpert & the Tijuana Brass were rolling right down the middle of the American pop scene like a locomotive in 1966 -- and this album captures them at the peak of their exuberance. By now, there really was a live, touring edition of the Tijuana Brass, and there was an easily identifiable TJB sound, with its strummed Latin American guitars, twin trumpet leads, delicate marimba or vibes played by Julius Wechter of Baja Marimba Band fame in the studio, and strong grooves rooted in Latin music, jazz, and rock.

By now, there really was a live, touring edition of the Tijuana Brass, and there was an easily identifiable TJB sound, with its strummed Latin American guitars, twin trumpet leads, delicate marimba or vibes played by Julius Wechter of Baja Marimba Band fame in the studio, and strong grooves rooted in Latin music, jazz, and rock. Alpert's 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 boss man's trumpet could be joyous, mocking, and melancholy in turns, and his choices of tunes totally unpredictable; who else would dare juxtapose "The Third 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. [A Deluxe Edition was released in 2005.]

    Oldie But Goodie

    TJB was around when I was a kid. I had the LP but could not find the CD. B and N did the research and ordered this for me. It still sounds just as good and brought back all the memories!

    This is Mr. Alpert's fourth recording[?] and features many hits, including Zorba The Greek, which conjures up images of Alan Bates and Anthony Quinn. Fine record.
