SMJ No.30 March 13, 2011 - Fragile (Sting) cover - Japan-New Zealand-Haiti Earthquake tribute
Fragile (Sting) cover tribute to the victim of the earthquakes in Japan, NZ and Haiti. It may not be the appropriate song but the message of this chorus is so strong. This is my tribute to the victims of the recent earth quakes in Japan, New Zealand and Haiti. Shocking images from all around the world telling us just 'how Fragile we are...'

VI. THE LOVERS - I'll Take It From Here (acoustic version)
I'd like to take some time to thank the sun for coloring your hair a thousand tones for kissing you awake in the early morn' and gently shine a smile upon your lips. I'm grateful for her light upon your back, while tiny clouds cast shadows on your legs. My heart just skipped for I was overwhelmed by a golden ray touching your chin, causing goose bumps on my skin. The tiny hairs upon your arms are turning into silver yarn, she's peeking thru the window drawing near. I'll thank her for warming you, tenderly caressing you, but I'll tell her I'll take it from here. My fingers running thru your luscious curls, you're holding me so tight as if you'll never let me go. Whenever I make a move you make a counter point, your hips are following my pace, I watch your face as I hear the sounds you make moaning, groaning, louder as we proceed. My arms around your waist, kisses in my neck and on my face. We're whispering sweet little words, confessions we've never heard. And all this time we breathe in rhythm, our arms and legs entwined, complicated dance moves. Silently grateful for being touched by the sun, kissing the light in your hair, where it all began.

The Way The Ballad Goes - Farid Rislani
With profound sadness in my heart I post this song. I recorded it years ago with a very talented young Dutch-Moroccan singer named Farid Rislani. When he first walked into the studio to audition he sung Mariah Carey’s song “Hero” and just blew me away with his phenomenal voice. It’s such a shame that the world has never acknowledged his beautiful voice and amazing talent. May your gentle soul rest in peace brother! And may you sing among the stars forever more! All vocals: Farid Rislani Music, lyrics and production: Michael Wouters

Sunday Morning Jam No. 33 May 15, 2011 - Quiet Now (Denny Zeitlin)
A friend of mine posted this photo from one of her travels. It's a scene from a dance school in Haiti. Post earth quake. A place I can imagine ever so lively before and oh so Quiet Now. (a poem accompanied by a remake of the beautiful song composed by Denny Zeitlin) Quiet Now so i can hear every single falling tear the sound of my breaking heart the silence as i hold my breath my footsteps as i walk the path guided by a shooting star back to a place where voices sang and children danced all day long If you're really Quiet Now you might still hear their song

Sunday Morning Jam No.13, October 24, 2010 Sound Of The Rain
Sound Of The Rain... On this rainy sunday morning I like to watch the raindrops as they're falling down, (yeah it's just one of those lazy sundays) from leave to leave, until they finally hit the puddles beneath the trees. Each 'path' different for every drop of rain. Like a giant pinball machine with leaves, controlled by the wind. The sunlight glistering in every drop, like diamonds from the sky. If you listen carefully you can actually hear it's soft music: the Sound Of The Rain...

This tracks is now available on iTunes: http://itunes.apple.com/gb/album/sunday-morning-jams-xmas-edition/id481289005 You are my heaven on earth, you are my last my first and then I hear this voice inside: Ave Maria... I was waiting for a good moment to play this song and since it is Easter weekend, I figured there wouldn't be a better time to play Ave Maria in Beyonce's version. Combined with a still from Disney's Ave Maria from the movie Fantasia it's makes a pretty appropriate Christian-Pagean mix.

Sunday Morning Jam No.11, October 10, 2010  -  Sophie
http://itunes.apple.com/us/album/sunday-morning-jams-part-1/id417437264?uo=4 Sophie... I came across an old recording of this song and decided to replay it today. I haven't known Sophie for very long, since she was already an old lady at the time I first met her, but she was important to someone that was in turn very important to me. So when Sophie passed away I wrote this song to accompany her on her journey to a beautiful place, roaming the temples and rice fields she had left behind as a young woman, so many years ago...

Sunday Morning Jam No.23 - January 16, 2011 - In Your Own Sweet Way
In Your Own Sweet Way, originally composed by Dave Brubeck in 1952 or 1953... Brubeck's wife Iola, a fine lyricist who has collaborated with Dave over the years on many projects, added the rather cryptic lyric to "In Your Own Sweet Way." It's about a charmer whose "sweet way" has "turned the world upside down." However, as the singer says in frustration, "I can tell that you'd like to stay your own sweet way."

Sunday Morning Jam No. 38, November 6, 2011 - How Deep Is The Ocean
Frank Sinatra's classic 'How Deep Is The Ocean' How much do I love you? Ill tell you no lie How deep is the ocean? How high is the sky? How many times a day do I think of you? How many roses are sprinkled with dew? How far would I travel To be where you are? How far is the journey from here to a star? And if I ever lost you, how much would I cry? How deep is the ocean? How high is the sky?

Sunday Morning Jam No. 36, September 23, 2011 - Would You Cry If I Told You That?
I want you to know that we can live a lie. Would you wonder why? if I told you that? I know that we believe in what we think is real. But this is all we got, would you cry if told you that? I want you to know that everything I do, is for the greater good. Would you sigh if i told you that? I and every breath I take, is not because of me but for the love we make. Would you cry if i told you that? I want you to hear my whispers in your ear that i belong to you, no matter what we do. Would you cry if i told you that? Would you lie if i told you that?

Sunday Morning Jam No.34 - Forbidden Kingdom
I was watching the movie Forbidden Kingdom and got carried away by the cool story and great martial arts from Jackie Chan, Jet Li, Li Bingbing and Crystal Liu. A fantasy story about a monkey king who gets tricked by the jade warlord of the Forbidden Kingdom and has to wait for hundreds of years until 'the traveller' returns his staff with which he can defeat the warlord. The enchanting images of the Chinese landscape combined of course with the beauty of 'the White Witch' and 'Golden Sparrow' inspired me to play around with the movies' theme song this Sunday morn.

And while you're longing to tell that someone all about the little occurrences in your every day life that remind you of them... that person is probably longing to hear these same words from somebody else... Like 'two pieces of a different puzzle'...

Sunday Morning Jam No.10, October 3, 2010 - My Foolish Heart
http://itunes.apple.com/us/album/sunday-morning-jams-part-1/id417437264?uo=4 My Sunday morning tribute to a beautiful song composed and written by Victor Young and Ned Washington as first featured in the movie 'My Foolish Heart' starring Susan Hayward and Dana Andrews. The night is like a lovely tune, beware, my foolish heart! How white the ever constant moon, take care, my foolish heart! There's a line between love and fascination, That's hard to see on an evening such as this, For they give the very same sensation. When you are lost in the passion of a kiss. Your lips are much too close to mine, beware my foolish heart! But should our eager lips combine, then let the fire start. For this time it isn't fascination, or a dream that will fade and fall apart, It's love this time, it's love, my foolish heart!
