Strings Aflame - Esquivel And His Orchestra
RCA Victor LSP-1988
This album is available from online vendors so I will not be posting a sample.
Esquivel does more than just set strings aflame… The arrangements incorporate percussion, a touch of accordion, harpsichord, some vocal touches and, of course, Esquivel's piano.
The engineering is top shelf. RCA made good use of stereo.
Esquivel does a great cover of Misirlou on this album.
Never a dull moment! Terrific!
