 Notes & Reviews
 
The exciting original compositions on Come Fly With Me were inspired by everything from a Tito Puente rhythm Alpert fell in love with (the propulsive 'Night Ride') to jamming with his world class band in between shows on tour (the fun, reggae-infused 'Cheeky' was born of these sessions). On 'Walkin' Tall', another track with a punchy reggae beat, Alpert's trumpet melody slinks and slides. Herb's take on one of Frank Sinatra's most famous recordings, 'Come Fly With Me,' is set to a groovy bossa nova beat with the surprising addition of a steel drum. His sparse take on George Harrison's 'Something' includes the use of an electronic instrument known as an EVI, to play the signature guitar lick from the original recording.
