Artist: Esquivel & His Orchestra
Title: Other Worlds Other Sounds
Product Type: VINYL LP

Vinyl LP pressing. Esquivel was a Mexican band leader, pianist, and composer for television and films and widely considered the king of a style of late 1950s-early 1960s quirky instrumental pop known today as lounge music. RCA contracted with Esquivel in late 1957 and brought him to record in Hollywood in early 1958. He was given five hours of studio time to record the album "Other Worlds, Other Sounds." The period cover of "Other Worlds, Other Sounds" says it all... like the woman in red dancing on a moonscape, this 1958 long-player was all about fantasy. And Esquivel, wasn't afraid to fantasize about his instrumentation nor the new audio sound known as "stereophonic or Hi Fi." At the time Esquivel was using this new tech to it's fullest by arranging the music in a unique manner as well as considering right channel-left channel. Voices ring back and forth between speakers, horns explode out of nowhere, and piano sounds cascade out of the stereo. This is what hi-fi was all about. It is seamless, quite enjoyable and rather magical.
