Okokuluku to all of you!

Last Friday I had the pleasure of performing with and conducting the National Jazz Orchestra of Mexico in another concert of my project Esquivel 100, which is a retrospective (Retro-Spective!!) on 40 years of Esquivel's music. We performed at a really great concert hall in Morelos, 2 hours South of Mexico City, that has pre-hispanic pyramids right in front!!

In attendance were Professah Humming Flower and Tabuzak!!! They flew in from Honolulu and NYC respectively. The Professah even played a tune with us, Boulevard of Broken Dreams!!! :fez: :fez:

Also in attendance was Mario Esquivel, the son of Esquivel!!

Here is a video from that concert:

Thanks for sharing. I really just became aware of Esquivel a few years back, though I've probably enjoyed his music my entire life without knowing who he was. Happy to se his music being kept alive.

Thanks for sharing!! The music does sound familiar, kind of a mix of Herb Albert and Martin Denny. I'll have to look up his creations and explore some.

Glad you cats dig it!! It certainly was a blast.

Here's one from the early days of Esquivel, when he was composing and arranging for his own orchestra and backing up the big star vocalists of the 1940s here in México. It's a bolero he composed, and Pedro Vargas sang it originally. Here it is sung by a young tenor with a bright future named Obed Calixto. Acapulco!!
