A legendary trumpet player, Alpert’s extraordinary musicianship has earned him five #1 hits, nine Grammy Awards (the latest from his 2014 album Steppin’ Out), 15 gold albums, 14 platinum albums, and has sold over 72 million records.  In 1986, Lani Hall won a Grammy Award for Best Latin Pop Performance for her album, Es Fácil Amar.
