Herb Alpert & Lani Hall Live: Anything Goes

Read "Anything Goes" reviewed by Edward Blanco

Though trumpet legend Herb Alpert and wife Lani Hall have been together for more than three decades, it's hard to believe that Anything Goes is their very first album together. A musician and entrepreneur, Alpert is best known for his work in the 1960s with his Tijuana Brass, five number one hits, eight Grammy Awards and ...

Herb Alpert / Lani Hall: Anything Goes

Read "Anything Goes" reviewed by Nicholas F. Mondello

There is a very unique characteristic that permeates this CD from beat one throughout its entirety. And, given that this effort was recorded across a series of live performances, it makes trumpeter/vocalist Herb Alpert and vocalist Lani Hall's Anything Goes all the more special. That characteristic is intimate, and the result of that intimacy is joyous ...

Capitol Quartet: Anything Goes

Read "Anything Goes" reviewed by Jim Santella

As a foursome interpreting “Night and Day” or “Begin the Beguine,” the Capitol Quartet presents itself as a talented, classically trained unit that enjoys making good music. Most of their crossover session features the quartet alone, in a program that reaches from classical music to Dixieland. Crisp, clear, and with a decade-long comradeship, the four saxophonists ...

Capitol Quartet: Anything Goes

Read "Anything Goes" reviewed by Todd S. Jenkins

Jazz saxophone quartets seem to be divided firmly into two camps. The first camp, exemplified by ROVA, the 29th St. SQ and the World SQ, specializes in original avant-garde material that explores the fringes of jazz and the myriad capabilities of the horns. The second, the realm of the Nuclear Whales and the present Capitol Quartet, ...
