So Rare


This album proves beyond all question that there is an arranger who, given well-known standard songs, can take them to their plus-perfect place in musical immortality. ESQUIVEL, with his incomparable arranging creativity, has taken such a set of standards and projected them into the rare atmosphere of INFINITY IN SOUND.

Almost without exception, the individual numbers ring out the names of great bandleaders whose recordings of them are timeless. In their new frames, styled by the genius of ESQUIVEL, these songs become tone tapestries with a beauty you never saw, or heard, in them before.

By definition, INFINITY is that which is immeasurable, unbounded or unlimited. Here, then, is an album which doesn't require copious quantities of liner copy. Your turntable and speaker system will allow your ears to judge that ESQUIVEL has created not only great things musically, but INFINITY IN SOUND!
