Legendary and resurgent trumpeter Herb Alpert shows no signs of slowing down. His latest album is titled ‘Come Fly With Me’ and finds him on top form with a blend of new Alpert originals and classic American tunes. The first single is the fast flowing ‘Night Ride’ that enjoys a Latin flavor and has all the attributes of classic Alpert and then some.
As Alpert himself explains, “there was a song that I heard that Tito Puente recorded years back that kind of made me move in this Latin direction. The groove came first, then melody. The title came last and that was courtesy of my wife, the singer and author Lani Hall. She threw out various titles and 'Night Ride' just stuck."
