It's Herb Alpert's 85th birthday. Alpert is best-known for playing trumpet and leading Herb Alpert & the Tijuana Brass. He also founded A&M Records with Jerry Moss, and is the only artist to reach No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 as both vocalist and instrumentalist, with 1968's "This Guy's in Love with You" and 1979's "Rise," respectively. We're celebrating with your favorite tracks featuring horn sections.
