    "Esquerita" Mono EP Capitol 1-20754 (France 1960s). Only one of our crack(ed) staff of experts knew of Esquerita, and he only knew of him because of travels in Europe. Eskew Reeder Jr. was born in 1935, three years after Little Richard, who credits Reeder as one of the greatest pianists ever, and as one who influenced his own playing. Recording as "Esquerita" and as "The Magnificent Malochi" over the decades, commercial success eluded him, although he played with or was sponsored by the likes of Little Richard, Big Joe Turner, Allen Toussaint, Barry Gordy, Jimi Hendrix, Dr. John, and Paul Peek (Gene Vincent's rhythm guitarist). We know of no U.S. released EP; this one's from France circa 1960s. See and hear what the hub-bub is all about! Condition: EX 7/ NM 8. From the GRT Collection
