In the early 1960's, Herb Alpert hit the charts with The Tijuana Brass. His career included number one hits & many albums that charted on Billboard. They also won 8 Grammy's and sold 70 million albums around the world.
Alpert is also the only artist to hit # 1 with an instrumental "Rise" in 1979 and as a vocalist with “This guy's in love with you" in 1968.
Not bad for a guy whose first hit was "The lonely bull"!
