Good Background Music

"This fairly recent CD by Herb Alpert is basically good. The mood is definitely right for those moments alone with that special person. Herb mixes some of this trademark trumpet souns with some captivating flugelhorn solos as well. However, the disc as a whole just does not distinguish iself on a track to track basis. In the background, its very nice music. On a song to song basis nothing really stands out as overly spectacular except for the style. Consistent yes, but not quite at the level of Tijuana Brass releases or his disco flavored Rise CD. Fans will like it but new comers might want to start with the Whipped Cream, The Lonely Bull or A Greatest Hits Compilation."

"It isn't fair to try and compare Passion Dance with Herb's music from the sixties. Passion Dance is an entirely different approach, as if a group of talented musicians got together on a lazy Sunday afternoon and started playing for the sheer joy of making music. What I appreciate about Herb Alpert is his desire to try something new - and it works! The haunting "Until We Meet Again" is tender and soft. Sure, this album would probably not be suited for "cranksters" or those with "ADD" but it offers something that more of us need, music that helps us slow down in a crazy, chaotic world."
EXCELLENT MUSIC! Highest 5 star recommendation!!!

"I play in a band - Oldies, Classic Rock, Blues, R&B and more - at the end of the night when I begin to drive home and my ears are ringing from the "Cream like solos" I play this CD - every time! It brings me back and calms me down. I go from super-guitarist to passive easy listening. This album is one of my all time favorites. It is so passionate. It is sensual. It is instrumental. There are no screaming solos - its pretty, its nice, its in the vein of Herb Alpert but not the Tijuana Brass - its more like mellow grooves. Its happy. I can't explain how great this CD is. Buy it. Listen - you'll listen over and over and over. The musicianship is impeccable. It is THE BEST CD I OWN (of this style)...."
