Esquivel, Juan Garcia


Esquivel, Juan Garcia
▪ 2003

      Mexican composer and bandleader (b. Jan. 20, 1918, Tampico, Mex.—d. Jan. 3, 2002, Jiutepec, Mex.), won international fame with eccentric instrumental pop recordings in the 1950s and '60s; late in Esquivel's life, the release of two compact disc compilations of his work, Space-Age Bachelor Pad Music (1994) and Cabaret Mañana (1995), sparked a revival of interest in his music. Esquivel was a bandleader from the age of 17, and by the 1940s he had made a name for himself in Mexico as the leader of a 22-piece orchestra that performed regularly on radio and television. His first album, Las tandas de Juan García Esquivel (1956), caught the attention of American producers, and RCA Victor Records took him to the U.S. in 1957. A string of popular albums followed, including Other Worlds, Other Sounds (1958) and Latin-Esque (1962), which showcased Esquivel's wildly dissonant and technically innovative arrangements. He also wrote sound track music for a number of films and television series. Esquivel returned to Mexico in 1979; he had retired by 1990. A compilation of his unreleased recordings, See It in Sound, appeared in 1999.
