Ersatz "Mexicans" R Us! Tales of the Tijuana Brass!
My new BFF via blogs and such, Josh Kun, is working on a new book that will feature, among other things, meditations on Tijuana and, hurrah!, a piece on Herb Alpert and the Tijuana Brass! And so, the Fates are listening, and they throw us a piece today on the 'Brass in the LA Times--the full story is here. You can pick up a discounted copy of the band's first hit album, holy whip cream, Batman!, by hitting this link!
Last? What else but a YouTube video of a 1966 video--very cool, hip, and cinematic!
