"Slow Down" is the latest single from Herb Alpert's new album, Wish Upon A Star. The track was written and produced by Herb and his longtime collaborator, fellow Smooth Jazz artist and keyboardist Jeff Lorber.
The upbeat, funky groove is grounded in Lorber's syncopated comping while Herb's trumpet melodies soar high above. Lorber interjects with soulful interludes on both organ and piano. The sound is filled out with Mitchell Long's skillful guitar and Gary Novak's locked-in drums.
Wish Upon A Star is the 88-year-old Alpert's 49th studio album and includes covers of iconic tunes like Jerry Reed's "East Bound And Down", Elvis Presley's "(Marie's The Name) His Latest Flame", The Beatles' "And I Love Her", and Cat Stevens' "Father And Son".
