Power Salad Smells Like Herb Alpert 
featuring Chuck Rickard
It had to happen. Somebody had to do it. The Nirvana grunge classic arranged & performed in the style of Herb Alpert & The Tijuana Brass. A "Dementstrumental"! Inestimable assistance by and featuring Cleveland's foremost Alpertologist, Chuck Rickard on trumpet AND trombone, no less! The rest of the mess arranged & performed by Chris Mezzolesta [acoustic & electric guitars, bass, whistle, maracas, VST drums/mallets/trombone melody].
Here, have a video too!

This song is now available on the following CDs:

Fantastic!! I grew up in the 60s listening to Herp Alpert & The Tijuana Brass albums on our console stereo! And I played trumpet in the school band ... so you can imagine how much I love this!!!

Whoops! In my previous comment, I meant Herb, not Herp. Unlike Facebook, I can't edit my comments here. 8^)

In this case, Herp is appropriate, I guess ^_^

Excellent as always, sirs!

Well, this was a bunch of pretty alright. I kept playing it on repeat while I did dishes. I don't think it's going to replace "smells like Karen Carpenter" in my heart, but it's pretty great.
