    Always thought it was "marimbas", with an "s". Guess not, sorry the thread title is wrong.

    Surprised no one has posted the Baja Marimba Band yet. Did those Chet Baker / Mexicali Brass albums include marimba(s)?

    But if you loosen the standards, this thread will get spammed with Milt Jackson posts. :smoke:

    The Marimba Band of Fairfax High School

    In the early 1970s, our high school participated in an ongoing exchange with a band in Fairfax County, Virginia...concert and jazz bands. And, they had a marimba band. REALLY talented students and their drummer was the director's son. At that time the only other organized marimba band with recordings was the Baja Marimba Band. Their director was the dynamic Matt Hynes. I have great memories from that time.

    Here's a link that showed up a while back at WFMU's blog:

    http://blog.wfmu.org/freeform/2007/01/365_days_28_the.html

    There are sound files. Remember, this is a HIGH SCHOOL band. Try the last one first "El Cumbanchero".
