The composer, band leader, space-age popster, lounge godfather, and the most swingin'est fella died on January 3rd at his home in Mexico. His music undeniably brought smiles to nearly everybody it touched, influencing a long line of bands you probably own numerous records from. In a time where most big bands were making music for your mother, Esquivel was mixing up bachelor pad music to explore the galaxies to. Esquivel died only a few days after his second stroke in the last year. Brainwashed wishes to personally thank him for making the world a more sparkling planet.
