MANHATTAN — The 2022-2023 McCain Performance Series continues a full September slate of shows with Grammy-winning and Rock and Roll Hall of Famer trumpeter Herb Alpert and his wife, Lani Hall, at 7:30 p.m. Wednesday, Sept. 14, in Kansas State University's McCain Auditorium.
"Happy music made by happy people." That's how The New York Times described performances by Alpert and Hall. Alpert boasts 15 gold albums and more than 72 million records sold. Herb Alpert & The Tijuana Brass propelled his sound into the pop music limelight, at one point outselling the Beatles 2 to 1. Alpert also guided A&M Records — with partner Jerry Moss — from a Hollywood garage operation into one of the most successful independent record labels in music history. Stars included Janet Jackson, Quincy Jones, Sergio Mendes & Brasil '66, Stan Getz, Cat Stevens, Supertramp, The Carpenters, Carole King, Sheryl Crow, Peter Frampton, The Police and scores of others.
Hall was the lead singer of Sergio Mendes' group, Brasil '66, and wrote the English lyrics for the band's Brazilian songs. She won a Grammy for producing Alpert's "Steppin' Out" album and another for Best Latin Pop Performance on her "Es Fácil Amar" album. In 1966, A&M Records signed Brasil '66 and Hall met her future husband, music legend Alpert. The couple married in 1973.
