4.0 out of 5 stars A Blast from the Past 7 Oct 2009
Format:Audio CD
Juan Garcia Esquivel arranger and pianist made a number of big band arrangements in the early sixties which included
his piano. The recordings were meant to demonstrate stereo sound which was new then, so they exaggerate left right
separation. The arrangements include wordless vocals, unusual instrumentation, echo effects, and a variety of percussion
instruments. The sound is a sort of cross between Ray Conniff and Stanley Black with a bit of Sauter Finnegan added.
I like the nostalgia this music evokes in me of the sixties coffee bars and sci fi films. At just over 34 minutes long
it is a bit mean for a re-issue.

5.0 out of 5 stars The lone Reprise Esquivel is a WINNER 18 Jan 2002
By Elwood Conway - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Frank Sinatra really dug Esquivel (no, I am not kidding). So when Juan and RCA were at loggerheads regarding his controversial and subsequently unreleased SEE IT IN SOUND, he jumped ship and recorded an LP for Frank's Reprise label. The recording technique, using 35mm film instead of magnetic tape, yielded a terrific soundstage and unparalleled dynamic range for the time. The full orchestra is on board for this outing and they play really well. Don't buy this one thinking buzzimba and wild stereo effects. This is straight ahead arranging but with the pow pows and usual Esquivellian orchestral flairs. The sound alone is a real marvel (Mercury records employed this recording method very successfully in their classical music department and Command Records literally made a living with 35mm film recording). You gotta get this one.

5.0 out of 5 stars Esquivel Genuis 4 Oct 2001
By Brian H. Williams - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
After four years of recording for RCA, Esquivel's popularity was still high, and yet, his contract was not renewed. So, he signed on to the Sinatra owned label, Reprise. This album has many cuts that have been used on commercials, news specials and television shows. His arrangement of "I Get A Kick Out Of You" is so original, that you'll be playing it over and over again and attempt to analyze his method of orchestration. The only other piano version that can top Esquivel in this song is Nat King Cole. Cole's version is available on the album "The Piano Style of Nat King Cole." Another great album, worthy of owning. Although the playing time on this album is short, every tune is a model of unique arranging and stunning orchestral arranging. If you are new to Esquivel, this is a great album in which to get started This one is intended as a sequel to his RCA release, Other Worlds, Other Sounds, but the fact that is not as eccentric as some of his other releases, make this an easy album to new comers to the great Esquivel. A great album.

4.0 out of 5 stars I get a kick out of you. 19 Jan 2006
By Johnny Heering - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
This was Esquivel's "sequel" to Other Worlds, Other Sounds. After his breakup with RCA Records, he recorded this album for Reprise Records. It opens with the bombastic "The Breeze and I", which is one of the best things he ever recorded. The rest of the album features typical Esquivel. Eccentric arrangements, "zoo zoo zoo" singing chorus, weird instrumentation. You know, all that cool stuff. This is an essential album for Esquivel fans.

5.0 out of 5 stars melt 5 Oct 2001
By AKC - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Like the TV era it evokes, this album projects perfection in life and living. Nothing can harm you when Esquivel is your background music, and the more martinis and pipe smoking the better. Unlike some of his more frenetic efforts, this Esquivel album is absolutely majestic and soothing. It will counter all but the worst of moods.
