Legendary trumpet player and Rock and Roll Hall-of-Fame inductee Herb Alpert is a platinum-selling musician, songwriter, record executive, fine artist, and philanthropist. After early success composing "Wonderful World" for Sam Cooke, Alpert went on to co-found A&M Records in 1962, a label which grew from his garage in West Hollywood into the largest independent record label in history. His band, The Tijuana Brass, was wildly popular throughout the sixties, with Alpert becoming the top-selling recording artist of 1966. Though Alpert's claim to fame was his trumpet work on albums like The Lonely Bull and Whipped Cream and Other Delights, he left his mark as a record producer as well, launching the careers of major artists including Sergio Mendes, Burt Bacharach, The Carpenters, Janet Jackson, and The Police. Most recently, Mr. Alpert won the 2014 Best Pop Instrumental Grammy for his album Steppin' Out (2013). He lives in Southern California with his wife, Grammy Award-winning vocalist Lani Hall.

Two-time Grammy Award-winner, Lani Hall Alpert, started her singing career in 1966. While still just a teenager, Lani was discovered by Sergio Mendes at a local Chicago nightclub where he asked her to be the lead singer for the new group he was putting together called, Brasil '66. Lani was whisked off to Los Angeles, where, just 5 months later, Brasil '66 was signed to A&M Records by the co-founder of the label (and Lani's future husband), music legend Herb Alpert. Lani has the distinction of recording more than 22 albums in three different languages (English, Portuguese and Spanish), 4 alongside her husband since 1973, music legend Herb Alpert, and in 1983, she sang the title song for the James Bond film, Never Say Never Again. In 1986, Hall Alpert won her first Grammy Award for Best Latin Pop Performance for her album, Es Facil Amar.
