Round like a circle in a spiral, like a wheel within a wheel Never ending or beginning on an ever spinning reel Like a snowball down a mountain, or a carnival balloon Like a carousel that's turning running rings around the moon Like a clock whose hands are sweeping past the minutes of its face And the world is like an apple whirling silently in space Like the circles that you find in the windmills of your mind! Like a tunnel that you follow to a tunnel of its own Down a hollow to a cavern where the sun has never shone Like a door that keeps revolving in a half forgotten dream Or the ripples from a pebble someone tosses in a stream Like a clock whose hands are sweeping past the minutes of its face And the world is like an apple whirling silently in space Like the circles that you find in the windmills of your mind! Keys that jingle in your pocket, words that jangle in your head Why did summer go so quickly, was it something that you said? Lovers walking along a shore and leave their footprints in the sand Is the sound of distant drumming just the fingers of your hand? Pictures hanging in a hallway and the fragment of a song Half remembered names and faces, but to whom do they belong? When you knew that it was over you were suddenly aware That the autumn leaves were turning to the color of her hair! Like a circle in a spiral, like a wheel within a wheel Never ending or beginning on an ever spinning reel As the images unwind, like the circles that you find In the windmills of your mind!

Rio de Maio 06:53
Rio, as pedras pulsam na manhã grená Frio, vejo arrepios na vela azul crepom do mar As folhas caem no jardim de alá Ah, porque no outono o coração dói mais Rio, o verde vibra na manhã lilás Frio, copacabana é um cartão postal vazio E o batimento das marés é blues É jazz, o sol enfeita a zona sul de luz em vão, em paz Pardais, passeiam sobre o vidigal em paz Flamingos flanam na rocinha em paz Rio de maio acorda quase em paz Bem perto de mim, Dois sabiás se amam perto de mim Adolescentes beijam perto de mim Ai, que saudade de você e de mim Os beijos de amor na tarde sem fim Se fosse um filme a nossa vida era assim Um beijo imenso, um mar cantando jobim O grande amor se reprisando a vida inteira Tom, as pedras pulsam na manhã grená Frio, vejos arrepios na vela azul crepom do mar As folhas caem no jardim de alá Ah, o outono faz o coração doer demais...

about

This is an album that I recorded in Rio de Janeiro with the help of my friend and brilliant drummer/producer Teo Lima. The songs are my original instrumental compositions with the exception of "Windmills of Your Mind" sung by the legendary Dionne Warwick and "Rio de Maio," a beautiful piece dedicated to Tom Jobim, composed and sung by Ivan Lins.
The band consists of top musicians in Brazil and a few guest appearances from my friends in Southern California including Alex Acuna and Peter Sprague.
