Nine-time Grammy winner Herb Alpert talks to MetroFocus host Rafael Pi Roman about his music, art and philanthropy.

This week, MetroFocus begins a new series called “Giving Back.”  We’ll be featuring philanthropists and the programs and works they support, and who better to get us started than the legendary musician Herb Alpert.

In between winning his ninth Grammy award and creating massive sculptures now on display here in New York, the 70-year-old also set up and manages a foundation that underwrites arts, education and music programs and helped save the  Harlem School of the Arts.
