A Day in the Sun

by Ziggy Luis

Several acoustic guitar styles with a lot of latin flavor (I'm half Cuban and Half American) I have featured my two resonator guitars on several songs which also lends a a very bluesy sound.

ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
I am former guitarist with CBS recording artist Four In Legion have been touring with my own Blues-Rock band The Zigtones for the last 20 or so years and playing acoustic music in smaller venues. Finally found time to put together some of my own songs into one album, and have enjoyed doing so this year. Most of these songs are solo guitar and vocals with a few doubled with added guitar, some light percussion and bass. I played a lot of my 1927 National Resonator guitar as well as my new Luna Steel Magnolia Guitar. This is a much mellower sound than I've had the chance to play live with my bands.
It's starts with "A Day in The Sun" a song I wrote for my wife when she was very frustrated with work and REALLY needed to go to the beach!
The second song "A Night Like This" is a solo Blues number I wrote during sound check at The War Eagle Supper Club in Auburn,Al. the owner John Brandt said "Man, I like that song!" and well that's all it takes for a musicians ego to want to record it!
"My Baby's on The Way" has an almost ragae beat and has a very open One-guitar feel to it.
"Hay Que Rica" is more of a latin feel on solo resonator guitar.
"Find A Way" also has an island feel to it but I will let you figure out which island? Gilligan's Isla... Too easy!
"The Czar Goes to Spain" is an instumental on my acoustic that I use to go into my next number "Mucho Trabajo"! If you come from a latino family (My Dad is Cuban) you have probably heard this expression before Mucho trabajo un poco dinero!! For the non-spanish speaking it means Much work for little money.
The last song on this album is also the last one I wrote, aand as any musician will tell you the last one you wrote is usually your favorite. "Let The Chips Fall" is the only truly autobiographical song on this record. I guess it's about getting old and finally being comfortable with it.
Please listen to this album and relax, I didn't write it to be to serious or to angry.. I've meelowed, Ziggy Luis

AUsome!!!
I've been a fan of Zig's for over 20 years, so I expected to be impressed.... and I must say, this project is everything I expected, and more. This record is a more laid-back version of the rock-n-roll guitar master, although there's still plenty of soul and nice energy when needed to keep things interesting. Oh yeah, and the lyrics are clever, catchy, and really interesting, (not your typical bullstuff). Thanks for sharing your talents with us Zig, and by all means KEEP UP THE GREAT WORK!

John

Great Job Zig!
This cd was better that even I expected. As a fan of Ziggy's for almost 30 years I must say it's his best work yet.
