Herb Alpert is one of music’s most legendary trumpet players, with five #1 hits, nine Grammys, and over 72 million records sold. So working with one of music’s most legendary mastering engineers was a no-brainer.
Alpert’s latest studio album Music Vol. 1 is released today via Herb Alpert Presents and was carefully mastered by none other than Vlado Meller. The album includes a brand new, funk-infused Alpert composition, “Sugarfoot”; a fresh take on “Flamingo,” a song he originally recorded in 1966; the Django Reinhardt-influenced “C’est Si Bon”; as well as covers of classics from The Beatles (“Michelle”) and John Lennon (“Imagine”).
On working with Meller, Alpert said “Vlado has a very musical and sensitive touch as a mastering engineer,” and co-producer/mixer Jochem van der Saag (who has also worked with the likes of Andrea Bocelli and Mary J. Blige) said, “Just right is the only way – thank you Vlado for your awesome magic!”
“It was an honor to work with a music legend of Herb’s stature on a project of such diverse and interesting songs, and it’s rewarding to know how happy he is with the final project,” Meller said.
