Info for Bullish (Remastered)



A funky little set from trumpeter Herb Alpert – part of that second chapter move into the soul fusion territory that was taken up by some of the younger generation – and which turned out to be a surprisingly nice fit for Herb! The Tijuana Brass is listed here on the cover, but there's none of the Mexican-styled sounds of before – just some fuller charts that are based on mainstream soul styles of the time, and topped with trumpet solos from the man himself! Lani Hall sings guest vocals on a version of "Maniac" – and all other tracks are instrumental, with titles that include "Bullish", "Make A Wish", "Always Have A Dream", "Passion Play", "Life Is My Song", and "Struttin On Five".

„Yes, Herb Alpert did indeed record an album in 1984 under the name Tijuana Brass for the first time in nine years -- and in fact, he took a Tijuana Brass contingent on tour that year with four of the original bandmembers on hand. But this album has nothing to do with the old TJB, for the music is the same high-tech pop of the 1980s that Alpert had been mostly purveying since "Rise," and with synths galore, a frantic electronic dance beat on many numbers, and none of the original Brass on the sessions. No wonder, for the arranger is John Barnes, who had worked for the Jacksons (Alpert was no fool; the Jacksons' sound was never hotter). About all that remains of the TJB is Alpert's familiar trumpet, which often hearkens back to his '60s manner in this gleaming setting. The best moments are the whomping title track, the hyperactive "Struttin' on Five," and the optimistic "Life Is My Song." But to call this a "Tijuana Brass" album is bordering on consumer fraud for the faithful -- though on its own terms, it is a fairly live slice of '80s pop.“ (Richard S. Ginell, AMG)
