Herb Alpert was on quite a roll, artistically at least, in the early '80s, a roll that continued with this 1983 album "Blow Your Own Horn". Looking at the album's credits give the impression that this is very much an 'odds & ends' collection of tracks left over from previous projects. Three tracks were produced by Herb Alpert and Jose Quintana--the same production team of Herb's previous album, 1982's "Fandango". Randy Badazz & Andy Armer, the composers of Herb's classic #1 hit "Rise, lend their production & arranging work to a couple tracks, & two tracks are actually produced by Herb Alpert and Holland-Dozier-Holland (of Motown fame). Also, apart from two tracks written by Juan Carlos Calderon, each track features a different songwriting battery. Don't be fooled though into thinking this an album loaded with second-rate material. The album opens with a remixed version of "Red Hot" which originally appeared on Herb's 1980 album "Beyond"--it's not DRASTICALLY different, making it rather redundant, but it's still a great groove tune. John Barnes, who contributed heavily to Herb's following two albums, arranged "True Confessions"--it has a rather boring, repetitive synth riff, but apart from that it's an engagingly tuneful minor-keyed track. In typical fashion, Herb delivers a pile of terrific groove tunes on here--the title track has an irresistible 'late night' vibe as well as some hilariously corny vocal asides; Armer & Badazz's "The Midnight Tango" is very similar in feel to the title track, & it's incredibly catchy in its own right, as are both the more uptempo Calderon-penned "Latin Lady", & the feel-good "Garden Party".Read more ›

Of all Herb Alperts work, this is my favorite. I realize the TJB music is what was, and remains, most popular, but I enjoy his later work the most. I bought the LP when I was stationed in Okinawa, Japan, with the U.S.Air Force. It's unforgettable stuff. Herb dedicated the album to his late friend, Karen Carpenter. She had a beautiful voice. Herb knew talent, because he's got plenty of his own; Blow Your Own Horn is proof of that. I only hope Herb thinks it worth re-issuing on CD - I do!
