2/4. Richard Carpenter explores the prolific career of trumpeter, composer and producer Herb Alpert , who co-founded A&M
Records and had seismic success both as frontman for instrumental septet the Tijuana Brass and as a solo singer (This Guy's in Love with You). This edition shifts forward to the mid-60s, when the band's Latin-flavoured, breezy and decorative sound resulted in phenomenal album sales. Contributors include Herb Alpert , A&M partner
Jerry Moss , songwriter Burt Bacharach , Sergio Mendes and, from the Tijuana Brass, drummer
Bob Findlay , guitarist John Pisano and bassist Pat Senatore.
Martin Yates conducts the BBC Concert Orchestra, with actor Edward Baker-Duly , cabaret duo Kit and the Widow and the Froncysyllte Male Voice Choir, live from the Watford Coliseum. Presented by Aled Jones.

understanding that it reflects the attitudes and standards of its time
- not those of today.
