"Good Times" from Luis Jahn Slated for April Release
(Chicago, IL) - Buenos Tiempos, Argentine singer Luis Jahn''s new CD on Del Sur Music, is a follow up to the successful 2003 release of Compromiso. A CD release party is slated to take place at the Old Town School of Folk Music on Wednesday, April 14 at 8:30 pm.
Written, arranged and produced by singer-guitarist Luis Jahn, Buenos Tiempos remains faithful to his signature heartfelt lyrics and melodic arrangements. The Latin grooves on Buenos Tiempos lay the tracks for a musical journey that is both familiar and innovative. From the bohemian jazz of "Cafe en "El Ultimo Beso" to the witty wordplay on the experimental "Tinta versus Tinto" featuring Chicago poet Lito Barraza, Jahn''s sound is smooth and more sophisticated than ever. He is joined by Mexican trovador Alfonso Maya on "Tlatelolco", an ode to those killed by the government in 1968. Instruments like the charango and the pezuna give songs like "La Mala Suerte" and "El Chambeador" an Andean flavor.
"Good Times stems from the idea that now more than ever it''s a good time to find what''s been lost, finish what''s been started and to dream the impossible. Music has always been my path to achieve this," explains Jahn. "On this record both musically and lyrically I explored much more than I have in the past."
