Volume 2 is the second album by Herb Alpert & the Tijuana Brass, known in this recording as "Herb Alpert's Tijuana Brass". It was released in 1963 on A&M Records, and sold poorly upon initial release. After the Tijuana Brass became massively popular with hits from their later albums, Volume 2 was reissued in 1966 and eventually reached #17 on the Billboard album chart. A CD version of the album was issued by A&M Records in 1990 but is now out of print. Some LP copies of the album have a spoken introduction by Herb Alpert at the beginning of "The Great Manolete (La Virgen de la Macarena)".

Volume 2 is available as a download from such online stores as Amazon.com and iTunes. It was made available in February 2007 at the same time as the reissues of the 1969 albums Warm and The Brass Are Comin'. No CD reissue of Volume 2 has been announced. Alpert reportedly felt that the album was of inferior technical quality.

As with The Lonely Bull, the album features some songs with a very Mexican flavor, but with more cover versions of pop hits than were included in that first album, "Spanish Harlem" having been a recent success for Ben E King. "Green Leaves of Summer" was the theme for the film portrayal of the famous Mexican-Texian battle in The Alamo. "Winds of Barcelona" would be reorchestrated as "El Presidente" on the Brass' next album, South of the Border. "Swinger From Seville" is a "strip-tease" tune, complete with audio of cries like "take-it-off" from a raucous audience. The song stands in contrast to the leadoff song, "La Virgen de la Macarena", the traditional title given to "Nuestra Señora de la Esperanza" (Our Lady of Hope) (or Mary, the mother of Jesus)... in Seville, Spain. The Brass' rendition of "A-me-ri-ca" begins with a bar of "Jingle Bells" as a prelude to a jazzy version of the West Side Story entry that gives no hint of that song's outspoken lyrics.

Herbert "Herb" Alpert (born March 31, 1935) is an American musician most associated with the group variously known as Herb Alpert & the Tijuana Brass, Herb Alpert's Tijuana Brass, or TJB. He is also a recording industry executive — he is the "A" of A&M Records (a recording label he and business partner Jerry Moss founded and eventually sold to Polygram). The multi-talented Alpert has also created abstract expressionist paintings and sculpture over two decades, which are on occasion publicly exhibited; and he and his wife are substantial US philanthropists through the operation of the Herb Alpert Foundation.

Alpert's musical accomplishments include five number one hits, 28 albums on the Billboard charts, eight Grammy Awards, fourteen Platinum albums and fifteen Gold albums. As of 1996, Alpert had sold 72 million albums worldwide. Alpert is the only recording artist to "hit" No. 1 on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100 pop chart as both an instrumentalist ("Rise", 1979) and vocalist ("This Guy's in Love With You", 1968).
