The album marked a triumphant comeback for Alpert, its sophisticated, upscale production blending his signature trumpet flourishes with contemporary touches such as massed synthesizers, disco beats, and orchestral backing. "Rise" was the first Herb Alpert single to appear on the Billboard Hot 100 in over five years. After 17 instrumental chart entries with the Tijuana Brass, he recorded "This Guy's in Love With You", a vocal effort that went to number one in 1968. His singing career was purposefully short, and he continued to chart with the Tijuana Brass until 1974. When he returned to the pop chart, he had a family member and television's most popular daytime drama to thank.

Beyond is a fine successor to Rise and would be the prototype for many of Alperts following albums Beside the driving title track another Top 100 hit the rest of the tracks are easygoing and pleasant competently played by a virtual whos who of studio musicians Labelmate Peter Frampton contributes a tasty solo to the mechanical The Factory The Continental is not a new version of the tune featured on the Tijuana Brass album Warm it is instead a mild uptempo number penned by Armer and Badazz Alpert also covers the Earth Wind & Fire anthem "Thats The Way of The World".

With 1992's "Midnight Sun", released on his own label, Herb Alpert indulges himself with vintage standards. A strong jazz feel imbues the relaxed atmosphere. The soloist's treatments of "All the Things You Are" create a cool and mellow version of the Hammerstein-Kern classic. Alpert reprises his 1965 hit, "A Taste of Honey", with a blue jazz feeling. After pop concerns dominating his work for the previous 30 years, it's refreshing to hear this album of timeless songs. „Midnight Sun“ is not so much concerned with finding a hit through today's trends but rediscovering an appreciation of the great music that's been forgotten.

The high-flying confidence of "Rise" and the experimental bent of "Beyond" began to wear off by 1981, giving way to the more relaxed but musically weaker ministrations of "Magic Man". With Michael Stokes, then A&M's director of Black Product/A&R, co-producing, Alpert came up with a pleasant collection of mostly forgettable, mild-mannered R&B/pop-slanted tunes, plus a fairly uneventful rendition-at-length of 'Besame Mucho' and a redundant cha-cha/disco remake of his own 'You Smile, The Song Begins.' Alpert's haunting trumpet still reflects his post-'Rise' sense of command, but he doesn't have much to say this time; the material holds him back.

Herb Alpert's early successes revealed a man with a keen sense of popular music trends and melodies. With "North On South Street", the master of trumpet-pop has once again updated his sound, this time taking on the hip-hop rhythms and dance grooves of the 1990s.

This album is typical of Herb Alpert's '80s style, with his familiar horn sound grafted to contemporary dance and R&B rhythm tracks. He even got the old Motown team of Holland-Dozier-Holland to write and co-produce a couple of tunes. Although there is nothing here to rival Alpert's 1979 comeback "Rise," he had multi-format success with the album, which charted pop, R&B, and jazz and threw off two chart singles, "Garden Party" and "Red Hot.
