Julius Wechter

Julius Wechter's Baja Marimba Band was, in his own words, "... like the Tijuana Brass' bad little brothers. Herb [Alpert] and his group would dress in tuxedos and put on a tight, professional presentation. And we'd flop on stage in big sombreros and old clothes with big pasted-on mustaches, smoking cigars and drinking beer." Wechter grew up in Hollywood, and can be seen as a teenager in bit parts in a number of films from the late 1940s and early 1950s. He learned the vibraphone and played around the fringes of the West Coast jazz scene, recording an album under his own name in 1956. For exotica fans, his fame began when he joined Martin Denny's combo in Hawaii

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary step that will help musicians and venues now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the sticky footer ad). Thank you!
