THE NEW ALBUM, “PIANO SIN FRONTERAS” OUT MARCH 17
March 16, 2009 ---
“Piano Sin Fronteras”
(Piano With No Borders), the highly anticipated new release by pianist Arthur Hanlon,
hits stores March 17. Hanlon, the leading name
in instrumental Latin pop, invites his friends—some of the top names in Latin
music—to write and perform in one of the most beautiful albums in recent memory.
“We are eight artists, from eight different countries, joined by our common
love for music,” he says. “It is truly music ‘without borders.
’” Tracklist ranges from the upbeat “Te Quiero Llevar,”
with Fonsi and Arthur trading vocal and piano riffs; the soulful “Ya Te Olvide”
with Montaner; Juanes’ distinctive guitar on “Lago Calima” and
the solo piano and voice in “Prendo Te,” with Laura Pausini. “In
this album Hanlon not only establishes himself as the best known Latin pop instrumentalist,
but as the best. ” -Billboard “A great pianist and simply a great musician
at every level. He’s someone who draws you to his instrument with his positive
vibe. ” -Luis Fonsi -“This is a real duet. The fact that there is only
my voice, and his voice through his piano, make the song that much more meaningful
and exciting. It is a true duet, just me and him, alone, doing something very artistic.
-Laura Pausini “Like Elton John, Hanlon has the ability to focus with laser-like
precision on the melodic essence of a song and rework it to find new dramatism.
Like Chris Botti, trumpeter for Sting, or rock guitarist Ottmar Liebert, Hanlon
brings a broad range of guest artists to create fascinating albums. - The Houston
