    I was aware that he was into abstract painting, but not that he was also a sculptor. He is quite the man.

    Probably every musician out there has by necessity multiple other outlets for creativity

    Likely. I studied for a while at the Honolulu Academy of the Arts.

    Sorry for degrading the original idea, I have a lot of respect for someone in any endeavor with such a long and sparkling career. Herb Alpert has been a household name all of my life and he is still achieving. Bravo! Best wishes.

    Herb had some of his art work hanging from the backstage curtains when I saw him in Hartford, Ct. a few years ago.
    Herb also was a co writer of the Sam Cooke hit, What A Wonderful World. He also has an uncredited appearance in the Jimmy Stewart film Mr. Hobbs Takes A Vacation. He's part of a band that's playing in a nightclub or restaurant in one scene of the film.
    Herb is a stand up guy. Donates tons of money to music and art programs.
    He and Lani Hall put on a first rate show. She's amazing and absolutely gorgeous in person.
