I can almost feel my self in a TIJUANA TAXI as I listen to the song, how about you?
Some of my all time favorite music comes from Herb Alpert and the Tijuana Brass. It brings back memories of my parents when they were still around, still married, and I was just a little guy who didn’t realize that this incredible music would bring so many wonderful memories later on.
Now whenever I think of Herb and his crew, I wonder how @Luke and his wife play his songs. I bet they can rock them!
Does she cover any of their songs on the trumpet @Luke?
Following are a few more of 5heir hits with links:
what memories do you bring up?! Oddly enough, I couldn’t remember his name. But after just three notes I can hum along to all the songs shown.
Even in my childhood and youth they were played up and down on the radio . Whether at home or in the restaurant, in the car! No wonder we’re both the same age, even if we’re miles apart.
Herbst Albert is a great trumpeter! The trumpet is a great instrument, I would have liked to have learned it earlier. Unfortunately born at the wrong time in relation to this .
Listening to Herb and his crew always brings a smile to my face since it makes me think of my parents.
Even though I was just a little guy at the time, as is the case with you, as soon as I hear the first few notes, the rest of the song seems to follow in my mind. Perhaps it is this which makes them so fun to play on the harp!
The melodies are timeless and the memories are priceless
Same here. I remember my mum dancing to them. My dad bought the LPs. They were see through clear plastic in luminous orange yellow and lime green. Did you have those? I don’t know what happened to them. Probably collectors items now. I remember something like A Spanish Flea? Was that a tune?
@HarpinBobbyMcB First song you posted filled my heart with joy, even tho I’ve no memories associated with. Wifey and I do Girl from Ipanaema. We do a lot of Brazilian songs, and she sings them beautifully in portugeese, which she learned phonetically.
