Alpert was the son of immigrant Jews from Romania and the Ukraine, most of whom already played some sort of instrument.
(To that point the Tijuana Brass had been a loose group of studio musicians, mostly Wrecking Crew members, with Alpert overdubbing his own trumpet.) Fifty years later, he’s still recording and still on the road, including an upcoming two-week stand at Manhattan's Cafe Carlyle, beginning May 31, with his wife, singer Lani Hall. social circles as Alpert, along with Jerry Moss, his eventual partner at A&M, and, maybe most importantly, the label’s eventual art director, Peter Whorf.This page is based on a Wikipedia article written by contributors (read/edit).Text is available under the CC BY-SA 4.0 license; additional terms may apply.Success: Alpert's friend Sol Lake had written an instrumental entitled "Twinkle Star," which the trumpeter began to record in his studio, overdubbing his horn with very slight delay in order to create the illusion of a full brass section.After seeing a mariachi band at a bullfight in nearby Tijuana, Mexico, he revamped the tune to match the style, and dubbed the result "The Lonely Bull." Alpert had already formed his own label, Carnival Records, with partner Jerry Moss, and had released a vocal solo single as Dore Alpert; he used this label, later renamed A&M, to release the new single.
