I GIVE you three toe-tapping, era-evoking, culturally corrupt yet ultimately irresistible words: the Tijuana Brass. This band -- well, this idea of a band -- was born in Southern California in 1962, the same year and place as that other beloved yet fraudulently Mexican empire, Taco Bell. Nobody in the Brass was Mexican -- not the founder and trumpet-player, Herb Alpert, not the guitar or bass players, not the marimba dude, not the guy who squeezed that clownish horn on "Tijuana Taxi."
