09-12-2011 Opnemen nieuwe CD

Er staat weer van alles te gebeuren bij RienkRienksmusic . We zijn momenteel bezig met de voorbereidingen voor het opnemen van CD met Touria Barakat. Zoals het er nu uit ziet zullen de opnames eind februari 2012 plaats gaan vinden. Het zal een CD worden met gedeeltelijk standards en gedeeltelijk eigen nummers. Te horen zullen zijn jazzy en bluesy nummers, doordrenkt met de soul waar Touria zo van houdt. Muzikanten die vooralsnog meespelen op de CD zijn  Carlos Monteiro, contrabas, Joeri Baldinger, drums, en Rienk Rienks, piano,keyboards, en Jan Verwey, mondharmonica. Dit zal binnenkort waarschijnlijk worden uitgebreid met een saxofonist. De muzikale leiding is in handen van Carlos Monteiro. De CD wordt geproduceerd door Rienk Rienks.

Verder zullen tijdens een besloten concert op 18/12/11 video opnames gemaakt worden van het trio Rienk Rienks en Touria Barakat. De opname leiding is in handen van Fourmedia / Jules Bloemen.

Het boek met de composities van de CD Brussels’Blues is bijna klaar. Er is door de firma Molenaar uit Wormerveer veel werk besteed aan de uitgave met als resultaat een fraai boek.

Songs

The sudden death of a good friend, an apparently healthy man, leaves one with that one question: why? With thanks to Edna Proctor.

On the untimely death of John C.

Oh Lord, why have you done this to me
Oh Lord, why have you done this to me
They say You are almighty, and love and so on
But I am for the moment just the widow of John
Please, have mercy with his soul
Please, have mercy with his soul

Oh yeah, we lived the good life, all things were going great
But sometimes it just nagged me, I was somehow afraid
We were so very happy, time was passing so fast
I hardly could imagine, that this would ever last
He looked so strong  and healthy, I could not be aware
Of something I should worry, but yet the fear was there
He told me not to worry, he would take care of all
And now I feel so sorry I was right after all

Oh Lord, why have you done this to me
Oh Lord, why have you done this to me
They say You are almighty, and love and so on
But I am for the moment just the widow of John
Please, have mercy with his soul
Please, have mercy with his soul

My man he was a soldier, his comrades loved him all
He did believe in justice, and wanted peace for all
He did it for his country, and people that he loved
And yes, he felt so strongly, Your blessings from above
You know he was a good man, You must have noticed that
And yet You took him with You, I have to live with that
You tell me not to worry, You can take care of all
But I, I feel so sorry, I’m alone after all
