Juan García Esquivel / Jan 20, 1918 - Jan 3, 2002

The king of Space Age Bachelor Pad Music, the wacky Mexican bandleader and self-taught pianist Esquivel has delighted us with bizarre arrangements and compositions that blended fully-composed jazz influence with mariachi, Brazilian music, twisted mambo, "exotic" percussion, an avant-garde approach to orchestral pop and he was a pioneer in the field of stereophonic recording. He remains the most important name in so-called "lounge music' and his music, being so far ahead of its time, stands as completely off-the-wall.
