Program Notes

Here is a marvelous throw-back to the campy yet delightful music of the '60s, courtesy of Herb Alpert and his south-of-the-border hit makers. Although primarily a feature for the trumpet section, the woodwinds have their fair share of feature spots as well. Who doesn't remember songs like: Spanish Flea, Whipped Cream, The Lonely Bull and Tijuana Taxi?
