Kritzerland is proud to present a new, limited edition CD
LAZY DAYS JULIUS WECHTER AND THE BAJA MARIMBAS
Julius Wechter and the Baja Marimba band were one of A&M Records’ most popular artists. Their records were fun, tuneful, and unique and a perfect compliment to Herb Alpert and the Tijuana Brass. At the end of the 1980s, Julius assembled some amazing musicians and created the Baja Marimbas – basically to just have fun and to keep the music alive. This recording, originally done on the Bay Cities label and titled New Deal, was their one and only album. It has been out of print for almost two decades and we are thrilled to make it available once again to Baja fans everywhere.
It has been remastered with tender loving care and sounds better than ever. We’ve also included with a few great bonus tracks making their CD debut. This Baja Marimbas is leaner than the Baja Marimba Band, but it is no less wonderful – the music is infectious and amazing, with great players doing both standards and originals. Hear such great tunes as “We’re Off to See the Wizard,” “But Not for Me,” “Lazy Days,” “Pavanne,” “Baja Noce,” and others. Bonus tracks include, “Nine on a Match,” “Green Bird,” “Alone Again, Naturally,” the theme from “Deep Throat,” and a commercial for the Santa Anita Race track.
Lazy Days is like a trip back in time to an era when music could just be fun – fun, beautifully performed, and with melodies you can actually hum and tunes you can actually tap your feet to.
Lazy Days is limited to 1000 copies only and is priced at $17.98, plus shipping.
Also be sure to check out Julius Wechter’s great work (both score and arrangements) on his son David Wechter’s (with Michael Nankin) award-winning short film, Junior High School, which has a new Blu-ray and CD release right here at Kritzerland. Click here to learn more about Junior High School.
CD will ship the first week of September, however, never fear, we usually get in copies one to five weeks in advance of the official ship date (we’ve been averaging four weeks).
