Classic jazz is not unfamiliar to Lourdes Duque Baron as her first album entitled “Feeling Good At Any Age” contained classic cover songs with a contemporary twist. But her debut single from her new upcoming EP My Spring In Paris is a first glimpse at her original music talent. Teaming up again with producer Andrew Lane, who also produced Baron’s last album and who also frequently collaborates with jazz music royalty Ron Ellington Shy, Baron winds up with a mellow, whimsical single that recalls the passionate late-night European sophistication of traditional jazz mixed with a contemporary sound. Listen to My Spring In Paris here.
“My Spring In Paris” is a song Lane co-wrote a few years back with artist Maya Tremblay and shelved until the right music artist came along to record it. He chose this song for Baron because of “her worldliness and her deep vocal sound.” Lane also happened to compose the arrangement. It's not just the sound, it's the emotion and feel of the song…very '60s standards like Frank Sinatra’s “We Just Couldn’t Say Goodbye" or Burt Bacharach's "Walk on By", classic and romantic jazz songs.
If any music could be called accessible it's this, with its warm intimacy and classic good taste. Baron’s look and sound has been referred to as ‘timeless.’ This new single is a masterpiece and could very well prove to be so. After all, some things are timeless for a reason; they need no updating, only replicating. Time will tell. "My Spring In Paris" is now available on iTunes, Amazon and MTV.
Lourdes Duque Baron's other projects include her two bestselling books "Scripted In Heaven" and "I Called Myself Cassandra," as well as her upcoming feature film in development, an adaptation of her book "Scripted In Heaven."
