Swank, Sophistication & Sparkle from Mr. T

Most of this material, like most of the Esquivel I got turned onto--I guess it's 10 yrs. gone by, now--is like pure ear-(& mind-)candy for me; it hits me right where I live, & I'm not even sure exactly why...I think it has to do w/ having come up during times when these sorts of sounds were part of the cultural landscape, & then re-discovering them after many years of rock & electric guitar-driven pop music. Anyway, it's gratifying to find more high-quality confections in this particular pocket, which rank w/ the best of Juan E., Les Baxter, Martin Denny & the other titans of the genre(s); the corn quotient on trax 9 & 12 is a bit high(hence the 4 *'s), but considering that this was Bob's answer to being ordered to do a Ray Coniff imitation, the over-all hipness factor is quite impressive(having top-tier jazz soloists like Bud Shank participating certainly adds to the cred, & listening delight...really, I would rate this 4 & 1/2 *'s). Great stuff!
