Inspired by Rio de Janeiro, Warm is a drastic change from what we're used to hearing from Herb Alpert. From the opening notes, picked on a solo acoustic guitar, and even to its lush album cover, you knew this album was going to be different. In fact, judging from the different sound and "feel" of this album, it could almost be considered Alpert's first solo album. The first track on the album, "The Sea Is My Soil", is probably one of the favorite tracks of many TJB fans. Penned by Dori Caymmi, its lush strings, Brazilian guitar accents and gorgeous melody make it a standout. While Alpert continues supplying unique arrangements, the mellower instrumental setting places them in a new light. Bobby Troup's "Girl Talk" features Alpert on quadruple-tracked trumpet. Edu Lobo's "Zazueira" features Portugese(?) vocal verses along with the rhythmic arrangement. Orchestrations were penned by Shorty Rogers. The only clinkers, for some listeners, are the two vocal numbers, Harry Nilsson's "Without Her" and the Bacharach/David tune "To Wait For Love". (Ironically, both of these vocal tracks were released as singles.) This is one of the finest albums in the Tijuana Brass catalog, and a listener favorite.
