Description


A playful picture-book biography in Spanish of Juan García Esquivel, musical innovator and the father of space-age, bachelor-pad lounge music.

A self-taught Mexican composer, arranger, bandleader, and pianist, Juan García Esquivel was a pioneer in the use of stereo sound in the 1950s and 1960s. Juan's music is quirky, fun, and truly out of this world, with unusual instrumentation and unorthodox vocal textures and effects. Juan was a true musical innovator, using sound and stereo as his musical palette.
