Have yet to replace them...... but now that I see this cover memories have come back and I just might go on a Herb Alpert album buying spreee............... Kind of like my wife does with shoes :thumbsup:

    Best album cover EVER!!!. But "the Lonely Bull" was the first song I learned off a record. I learned it when it first came out. Then I took "Strangers on the Shore" off the record. :thumbsup:

    There is a recording of me playing "The Lonely Bull" from 6th or 7th grade that my family will trot out to embarrass me from time to time. The Herb Alpert songbook was the very first book of solos my dad bought me. That and his old copy of Arban from college were my practice material for most of the first 2-3 years I played. Then in 9th grade he bought me two books of transcribed solos -The Wynton Marsalis "Carnival" collection and a book of Dizzy Gillespie bebop solos- and I discovered that I had a loooooong way to go...

    I love Wynton's baroque work, but I think the quintessential trumpet album of his is "Carnival of Venice"

    It was my first exposure to virtuoso trumpet playing, and to many important pieces in the repertoire.

    Way too many to pick from in jazz -my head hurts thinking about it.

    Hey, did the Whipped Cream girl became his wife? Seems like I heard that. I learned to play by that album -and like Mendez, had my own Jr high TJB band. THose were the days. And I NEVER worried about hitting a note (range).

    As far as albums -I agree with you guys that said Live at Jimmys is a topper. Can't remember the chart, but the last note on one of them has about the highest note I have ever heard. It kicks in after the rest of the band is holding the last note. My dog come running every time I play it. :)
