Default Herb Alpert

Neither Herb Alpert or The Tijuana Brass are Mexican. Herb "Dore" Alpert is a yid from a Hasidic Los Angeles neighborhood. He is also a recording industry executive - the "A" of A&M records. Kinda ruins these otherwise incredible videos.

Saw the Glenn Miller Orchestra last night; a fifteen man brass section (each armed with a horn, sax, and clarinet); profusely creative, timeless, and singularly Aryan.

Woodpecker ... and then there's "Chuck Mangione"



Quote:
Chuck Mangione has had a recurring voice-acting role on the animated television series King of the Hill. In it he portrays himself as a celebrity spokesman for Mega Lo Mart, although his animated form appears much younger than his current age, more closely resembling how he looked in the late 1970s. The first episode of King of the Hill featuring Mangione originally aired on February 16, 1997. The episode featured an original score specifically recorded for the occasion. He continued to appear in episodes, a total of ten more up until 2003.[8] In the context of the series, Chuck chafes under an oppressive spokesperson contract with Mega Lo Mart and eventually goes into hiding inside one of their own stores. After a long hiatus, the character of Chuck Mangione returned in a later episode entitled "Lucky's Wedding Suit", in May of 2007. A recurring joke is that whatever tune he plays on his flugelhorn inevitably shifts into "Feels So Good" after a few bars. The series finale in 2009 included Chuck Mangione one last time, playing the National Anthem which of course segued into "Feels So Good".
