Esquire Release Dates

Esquire was a real-time record label in the cauldron of ’50s/’60s Prestige jazz releases, from 1956 to around 1964 when it went into liquidation. From a vintage Record Collector magazine series, scans of which are posted up to a forum I’ve long lost track of, I have gleaned the following (incomplete) information:

April 1957 : 32-020 to 022

July 1957: 32-023 to 024

Sept. 1957: 32-027 to 028

Oct 1957: 32-029

Jan 1959: 32-069 to 071

Feb 1959: 32-072 to 075

March 1959: 32-076 to 078

May 1959: 32-079 to 081

Jun 1959: 32-082 to 083

Sept. 1959 32-085 to 086

Oct 1959: 32-087 to 088

Feb 1960: 32-092 to 093

Jun 1960: 32-097 to 099

Sept 1960 32-106 to 108

I haven’t bothered with the complete  because you can easily see the pattern of two to three releases per month every month, make your own estimate.
