Herb Alpert may have surprises

COSTA MESA - Legendary trumpet player Herb Alpert will perform a one-night-only concert at the Segerstrom Hall in Costa Mesa on Dec. 5.Alpert will be joined on stage with his wife, vocalist Lani Hall. Alpert and Hall, both Grammy winners, may debut a few songs at the concert. "My love for jazz is rooted in its spontaneity…hopefully creating an exciting and unique musical blend without ever closing the space for spontaneity," Alpert said. Hall added, "These songs have been floating around in our minds over the years. When we added our own personal touch to them, they came to life and now we're all on the road together with a blank canvas before us. Not knowing where this will lead adds to the musical excitement, and for us to share it so intimately with the audience is a dream come true." Tickets to see Alpert and Hall are $25-$74 and are available at www.ocpac.org or by calling (714) 556-2787.
