Mr. Ho's Orchestrotica CD Release: The Unforgettable Sounds of Esquivel
(Published: March 14, 2011)

Friday, 18th March, 2011
Le Poisson Rouge, NYC

The first-ever big-band recording recreating Juan Garcia Esquivel's long-lost arrangements, The Unforgettable Sounds of Esquivel is already earning wide acclaim including a Starbucks licensing deal and great reviews. Featuring 23 musicians and, as Downbeat puts it, "...incredible arrangements, musicianship and artistic direction..." by multi-percussionist and vibraphonist Brian O'Neill, the album features eleven transcribed arrangements of Esquivel's space-age arrangements of popular mid-century songs including Sentimental Journey, Frenesi, Take the A Train, and Esquivel's own Mini Skirt. The entire CD, plus additional selections, will be performed live for the first time ever in New York City with a 22-piece ensemble that enhances standard big band instrumentation with three percussionists, slide guitar, Hammond B-3 organ, four singers, and more. Selected as a Top CD of 2010 by AllAboutJazz, the album captures the fun, Mad Men-period sounds of mid-century hi-fi music and is the first recording in the Orchestrotica's Exotica for Modern Living series. The evening will feature a short opening set by the Orchestrotica's third-stream exotica quartet which will continue the series with an album in May 2011 entitled Third River Rangoon.

Editor's Pick, 4 stars - " ...exquisite attention to details..."
- Sunday Times London

" ...If John Zorn is an exotica Picasso, O'Neill is his Georges-Braque counterpart [and] may be, in the long run, a stronger exoticist than Zorn."
