Whipped Cream & Other Delights Rewhipped

Rewhipped amounts to a pseudo-addition to the original Herb Alpert & the Tijuana Brass catalog. This album of remixes by late-'90s and 2000-era DJs features new trumpet solos by Herb Alpert on seven tracks. All the cuts here appeared on the original 1965 release, Whipped Cream & Other Delights, though not in the same order. Before rolling your eyes, consider this: the music on this set was regarded not only as hip, but as progressive jazz by many back in the day. Producer Anthony Marinelli supervised all the remixes on the project and contributes six of his own -- including the title track with the aid of the band Ozomatli performing with Alpert.

Rewhipped amounts to a pseudo-addition to the original Herb Alpert & the Tijuana Brass catalog. This album of remixes by late-'90s and 2000-era DJs features new trumpet solos by Herb Alpert on seven tracks. All the cuts here appeared on the original 1965 release, Whipped Cream & Other Delights, though not in the same order. Before rolling your eyes, consider this: the music on this set was regarded not only as hip, but as progressive jazz by many back in the day. Producer Anthony Marinelli supervised all the remixes on the project and contributes six of his own -- including the title track with the aid of the band Ozomatli performing with Alpert. Marinelli is also a composer and keyboard player who has composed soundtracks Man from Elysian Fields, Time Code and done session work with everyone from Michael Jackson and James Brown to Giorgio Moroder, Lionel Richie, and Supertramp. Other remixes were done by Thievery Corporation, Mocean Worker, John King, Medeski, Martin & Wood, Camara Kambon, and DJ Foosh. Whatever trepidations one might have about Alpert participating in the project, some of the best cuts on the set work best because he's on them -- the title cut Marinelli "El Garbanzo" M,M&W, and "Peanuts" Marinelli -- in part because Alpert's gotten a lot funkier in his old age. Other standouts include the ambient dub that is "Lemon Tree" by Thievery Corporation, John King's dub-jazz-exotica redo of "A Taste of Honey" the original album's smash single, and Mocean Worker's fine rework of "Bittersweet Samba" with killer berimbau samples grafted on. The only cut that really doesn't work is "Butterball," Although Alpert's solo is hip-cool, the song's added beats don't leave enough of the original to appreciate it -- this is a drag, since all the other tracks keep the basic cut to achieve historic continuity. It's a small complaint since it's the final selection here. Certainly the music on Rewhipped has a somewhat limited appeal, and it's hard to think of the folks who bought Whipped Cream when it was released being interested in it now, but who knows? Hardcore dance music fans will find this a curiosity piece at best, but that doesn't mean it's without musical merit. In fact, ReWhipped has as much aesthetic appeal as its predecessor because the music Alpert and his band made in '65 has aged so well. Judging by his contribution here, Alpert certainly has, too -- at 71, the cat is still swingin'.

    herb should be ashamed of this

    You have to use your imagination and listen really hard to hear anything on this album that sounds like herb and the tiajuana brass. What it means by rewhipped is total desecration of the original. If I had to catagorize the result I would have to call it a rap/hiphop/psychedelic experiment gone wrong !

    Naughty Naughty

    What a sexy album, right down to the cover reminiscent of the original of 1965 version. For its, the cover was pretty racey. "Whipped Cream: Rewipped" is the type of lounge music you would find in a naughty cabaret, or a european berlesque house. I can just see sexy dames dancing around in their next to nothing outfits. But what's most important are the artists and groups chosen to remix the album. From Medeski,Martin and Wood to Thievery Corporation to Ozomatli. You couldn't ask for a better cast of artists. "Love Potion No. 9" sounds like something Carlos Santana himself would put together. Herb Alpert even stepped back into the studio just to freshened up some of his signature trumpet stylings to pep up some tracks. And keep an eye out for Bree Condon the cover model. Hot!!! Overall this album just sizzles. I wonder if Herb would consider giving the same treatment to the other Tijuana Brass albums, just to complete the circuit. It's something to think about.

    Herb Alpert's Re-Whipped Is Remarkable!

    Herb Alpert is usualy not known to re-visit too many tunes, but this time it's the whole album! Whipped Cream & Other Delights is arguably the best of the Herb Alpert & Tijuana Brass albums, not to mention the "scandalous" by 1965 standards, album cover - a naked woman covered only in whipped cream. They were great songs then, given the Alpert/TJB sound. These several well known re-mix artists have done a fanatastic job interweaving old & new. Herb plays new solos on all tracks, some overdubbed on his original horn tracks and some new jazzy counterpoint, licks and new melody lines. If you're a Herb Alpert fan, then you will definitely want this for your collection. If you're only just hearing about Herb and like jazz, I think that you'll will surely want to give this CD a listen and add it to your collection!
