The weight of Herb Alpert in contemporary music is outstanding. Along with Jerry Moss he founded A&M Records and, “forgetting” all the music, he is the only recording artist to hit No.1 on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100 pop chart as both a vocalist (with “This Guy’s in Love with You“), and an instrumentalist (with “Rise“).  In 1978, Alpert decided to record his old hit songs in a dance format and recruited his nephew Randy Badazz and his partner Andy Armer to rework them. Which they didn’t. Instead, they gave to Alpert a bunch of new songs not disco but funky: the whole story is a nice reading. Red Hot is a lesser known song that came out from their six hands, here’s presented in his extended version.
