Liner, Listening & Album Notes:

A 2017 2-CD compilation of Esquivel’s best tracks, released on/by Not Now Music.

Esquivel was a self-taught musician who created open futuristic sonic landscapes. He formed his own band, boasting 22 musicians and five singers, and over the next 15 years, Esquivel & His Orchestra went on to become Mexico’s most poplar act. Many of the numbers he made popular in his homeland can be heard here, songs that Esquivel later took to the world: Besame Mucho…La Bamba… Latin-Esque… among others. Enjoy!
