Anything with John Pisano and Herb Alpert is great! Never had this album in vinyl. Great Recording! Very, very hard to find.
Featured on this borderline jazz/easy listening effort are John Pisano, veteran of Herb Alpert's Tijuana Brass, and Willie Ruff, who primarily plays french horn but also contributes percussion and vocal guitar work. UNDER THE BLANKET was released in 1970 as A&M SP 4276, remaining out of print until A&M/Universal of Japan reissued it on CD in 2002.
The album is a combination of original compositions and cover tunes, mostly performed quietly and at a laid-back pace, with the exception of "Slim" with its scat vocals and "Stop." These tunes, along with "Chris," are catchy and jazz oriented.
Mr. Alpert himself produced, arranged and contributed some uncredited vocals. Brass Veterans include Nick Ceroli on drums and Julius Wechter (who also lead the Baja Marimba Band) on vibes.
Chuck Berghofer, best known for working with Pianist Pete Jolly, is on bass. Other credits include Larry Knechtel (electric piano/bass), Chuck Domanico (Bass), Jose Soares...
