Lani Hall Featuring Herb Alpert: Seasons of Love

Read "Seasons of Love" reviewed by Nicholas F. Mondello


Vocalist and author Lani Hall has not released an album of her own in 20 years. That is our loss, for sure. Her last effort--not counting her work with husband Herb Alpert on his tours and on a number of his fine Grammy-winning sessions--was in 1998. With Seasons of Love Hall's stepping out in front shows nothing has changed. She still has an outstanding voice with plenty of walloping emotional impact. She “returns" with this effort, delivering ten fine songs—most ...

Read "Herb Alpert: In the Mood for Excellence" reviewed by Nicholas F. Mondello


While he has been bestowed endless awards--nine Grammys, a presidential Medal of the Arts, enshrined in the Rock Hall of Fame--and has sold over 72 million records, Herb Alpert is a trumpet player at heart and an artist in his soul.

While Latin rhythms had already gotten their ...
