Post 'em if you got 'em!
I like mallet keyboards. I just don't know any recordings. Somebody please help.
Always thought it was "marimbas", with an "s". Guess not, sorry the thread title is wrong.

Careful what you wish for.
Surprised no one has posted the Baja Marimba Band yet. Did those Chet Baker / Mexicali Brass albums include marimba(s)?
This album was recorded monaurally and stereophonically in New York City on August 14, 1963. Instruments and mikes used were set up as follows: (Left Channel) Trumpets - Telefunken U-47; Organ - AKG D-25 & E/V 666; Marimba - AKG C-60 & Sony; Percussion and Scraper - E/V 666; Vibes - Telefunken U-47. (Center Channel) Bass - AKG D-24; Drums - Altec Lipstik. (Right Channel) Saxes - 2 AKG C-60; Guitar -E/V 666. The sessions were recorded on Ampex equipment at a speed of 15 inches per second.

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:
There are sound files. Remember, this is a HIGH SCHOOL band. Try the last one first "El Cumbanchero".
Always another favorite of mine from years ago, along with the National Emblem March prominently featuring marimbas.
