If you know the songs “A Taste Of Honey,” “Spanish Flea” or “This Guy’s In Love With You,” then you know Herb Alpert. 50-some odd years later and the jazz musician is still going strong, with new albums and a tour. 

And his art isn’t confined to just music – Alpert is also a visual artist, creating sculptures and abstract expressionist paintings that have shown in museums around the world. Over the next couple of months both his music and his art will come to Wyoming, with an exhibition at a gallery in Jackson, and performances in Jackson and Sheridan. He joined Wyoming Public Radio’s Caroline Ballard.

An opening reception for the show “Herb Alpert: A Visual Melody” will take place in Jackson at Heather James Fine Art on Tuesday, August 21. Herb Alpert and his wife Lani Hall will be live in concert Wednesday the 22 at the Center for the Arts in Jackson, and he will be playing a show in Sheridan Wyoming at the Wyoming Theater September 22.
