The transcriptions in this book provide the note by note trumpet music played by Herb Alpert (or at least near enough that it sure seems like it when I follow along from this book while listening to Herb's recorded music). You won't find the trombone part of a Tijuana Brass song in this book - good luck if that is what you would like. Of the 17 top 40 hits on the Billboard charts as recorded by Joel Whitburn in his book The Billboard Book of Top 40 Hits, for either Herb Alpert (by himself) or with the Tijuana Brass, this collection includes 12 of them. Here is the complete list of songs: Bean Bag, Behind the Rain, Carmen, Casino Royale, For Carlos, Lonely Bull, Mame, Mexican Shuffle, Rise, Spanish Flea, Surfin' Senorita, Taste of Honey, This Guy's In Love WIth You (this song also has the words - one of the rare songs in which Herb sang), Tijuana Taxi, Wade In the Water, What Now My Love, Work Song, Zorba the Greek. If you play trumpet, and you love Herb Alpert's music, you will enjoy this book. I had been looking for Tijuana Brass trumpet sheet music for decades, off and on through the years, and was delighted at this find! The music is a bit too difficult for a beginner trumpet player, in my opinion.
The book is part of a series by Hal Leonard of musical greats (mostly jazz) for trumpet, trombone, saxophone, piano/keyboard, guitar and bass, flute and clarinet. Other notable artists in the Artist Transcriptions series include Miles Davis, Louis Armstrong, John Coltrane, Stan Getz, Bill Evans, Al DiMeola, Thelonious Monk, among others.

Back in the 70's I learned how to play trumpet by trying to sound like Herb Alpert, Al Hirt, and Doc Severinsen. After a 38 year break from the trumpet I picked it up again and Herb's stuff was the first sheet music I looked for. This is a great collection. Many old favorites and a few new ones. I wish there were more Herb Alpert collections.

Was looking for the Herb Alpert Collection that my Brother had from the late 60's with most of the same songs. That was a great collection in keys that the average trumpet player can handle. This Collection requires an advanced player to recall all of the valve combinations he will need to remember based on keys having four or five flats or sharps....difficult for the beginner and even intermediate casual player.

Wow, Hal Leonard lets us down again. They have the amazing ability to, time after time, put out a songbook with a few greats and lots of stinkers...
See website link for complete songlist.
Sounded good at first, but not worth $10.00

The description was not clear. We were looking for trumpet solos with piano accompaniment. This book was trumpet only. The variety of songs was good. It just was not what we were looking for.
