Artist statement:

"Life is Worth Living is my second full LP- it comes 9 years after my debut LP "Más Dinero Más Problemas", but sound wise it's still walking on the borderline between house, jazz and soul.

I recorded the tracks in the period of last two years, using a combination of Rhodes and Moog improvisations on top of house and jazz-funk drum-lines.

This time with live sax additions on "Come Closer" and "Mercy Mercy" by phenomenal Artem Zhulyev. I first wrote the improv lines for a Moog for those two songs, but then thought the real sax would sound better, and Artem Zhulyev not only done them like I had in mind, but added a lot of his flavor.

Album is an up-tempo affair, but as usual with Jackie Brown releases, not your straightforward 4x4 routine - poly-rhythms and percussion drive "Wasting Your Life" and "Soul", while "The Approach of Midnight" sounds like it could have been placed straight into a Tenet soundtrack LP.

Artwork for the album is actually a painting named "Southern Cross" from great artist Adam Scott Rote, for which I have full permission to use. Interesting enough, I've met Mr. Rote as he messaged me that the actual painting was done while he was on repeat listening to my "Infatuacion/Repulsion" dubplates. It's been a huge honor for me to have his beautiful artwork as a cover of my record.

The lettering and adjustments of artwork, as well as label desing has been done by my artwork artist Lika Kvirikashvili.

Title of the record is a tribute to Venerable Fulton J.Sheen and his television series of the same name, that were aired in the 50s."
