Simultaneously the best and worst thing you'll hear today

100 mp3s of music inspired by the Tijuana Brass sound. You'll laugh, you'll cry, you'll hurt deep inside, and then you'll laugh again.

We grew up with these on S4C, although I hear Sat City is being repeated on a Cymru digital channel!

Ha!
I'm the brilliant lady who discovered Tijuana Brass sheet music in the JHS jazz band library and pulled Tijuana Taxi and Spanish Flea for us to play, among other lost classics, such as the Hustle. And the Shaft theme song. Oh yes. Ah the treasures that lurked in that musty little band library room. One of my bona fide geekdom credentials: band librarian queen.
