A true music legend visits Tucson tomorrow night, when Herb Alpert and Lani Hall perform Saturday, September 26th at 7:30 PM the Fox Tucson Theatre.
Alpert was and is the "A" in A&M Records, the leader of the world-famous Tijuana Brass, and a musician, composer, and arranger with nine Grammy Awards.
