Speak Low -
Juan Garcia Esquivel was born in Mexico in 1918, After mastering the piano, he taught himself composition and arranging when he was fourteen and headed a 30-piece orchestra by age 17.
It Had To Be You - Esquivel! Esquivel honed his talents with a 24-piece orchestra at Mexico City's popular radio station, XEW. In addition to writing jingles, he composed an original soundtrack every day for Panseco, a popular radio comedian. "The entire orchestra would arrive at ten o'clock in the morning," he recalled recently, "the comedian would give me the script for the day, and the boy who set up the music stands would give each musician a pencil, an eraser, and blank music paper." By the time the comedian's show aired at 8:00 p.m., Esquivel had composed and arranged the score and rehearsed the orchestra.
When he first arrived in Hollywood in January 1958 to record "Other Worlds, Other Sounds" for RCA, the record company gave him just five hours of studio time to record the twelve tunes. Esquivel had rehearsed the orchestra so well that he finished in three and a half.
