Movie Reviews

Herb Alpert "Live" At Last!
W. J. Bernardi | Austin, Tx USA | 04/14/2006
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Finally, a glimpse of what Herb Alpert sounds like in a concert setting. This was recorded at the Montreux Jazz Festival in July of 1996, the 30th Anniversary of the Jazz Fest. Joined by keyboardist Jeff Lorber, trumpeter Alpert displays his funk-jazz side and holds his own quite well. This is not the Tijuana Brass by any means, so the TJB fans may not get into this, even though the band goes through a funky version of "Lonely Bull" and a jazz version of "Taste of Honey". One of the big highlights is sax/flute/keyboard man Gary Meek, who is a perfect foil for Alpert's trumpet. Herb even encourages Meek to engage in a few cat-and-mouse riffs. It's my guess most people have never heard Herb Alpert in this kind of setting, so be prepared to be shocked. While the majority of this set is in a funky setting, the DVD closes with a gorgeous version of "This Guy's In Love With You", done with Herb and guitarist Tony Maiden (of Rufus fame). There are some humorous moments throughout as well. A definite keeper!

Incidentally, this sounds even better with the DTS Surround sound. Great sound and picture!

"Very positive to find JUST ONE Herb Alpert's DVD, but I think maybe could be possible to produce more Herb Alpert videos, no hope finding it for the TJB era, so those "modern" videos who I remember saw it years ago in the earlies 80's, specially for the "Fandango" promotional videos (Fandango and Route 101 for example), also some cutting edges about the "Bullish" album (Where are all of there??? Only God knows).

For the rest, Bravo Maestro, you are giving a magnificent gift to all of your loyal fans, but we deserve some more of your better times and great music."
