about

STEP LIKE A GIANT!!
This project was born deep down in my heart when I first heard Naima by John Coltrane. I fell deeply in love with the melody and then even more with the lyrics after learning more about him. I have ever since spiritually been working with the music of John Coltrane and it's now come out in new shapes, forms and ideas.

STEP LIKE A GIANT - is my way of reaching out to people today that haven't been introduced to the music of John Coltrane, who haven't been introduced to jazz in a way that appeals to them, to people who don't know jazz at all and to everyone to understand what John did for the musical plattform we all use today! (hiphop/grime/soul/neo-soul/nu-jazz/broken beat/house/ dub step/garage/blues/pop/rock...and all the ones in between)

Their voice was music. They used it to fight against the injustices that was happening then (like racial discrimination, war and poverty) just as today. We need to speak up, be brave to push the bounderies and never get intimidated to tell our own story to make progress. We are doing it - BELIVE ME but we all need to STEP LIKE GIANTS to make it manifest!

So this is my way of paying my respect to the amazing musicians that's paved the way for me to be able to do what I do.... Now come and join me!

Peace and creativity to all,
Cecilia

Track Name: Quinox
Enlight me to guide me
Release me to intimacy
In my soul and my inner selfe

Belive me with wisdom
Adore my persistance
As I reach my soul and inner selfe

Oooh.. Yes you gotta take the trip
To your equinox to make the inner change
For the greatness you prevail

Deny me conventions
Encourage progression
To my soul and inner selfe

Expose my comittment
Make love to my timbre
As i exhale my inner soul
Track Name: Cinematic Favorite
Raindrops of roses
Favorite things
Enlightment beyond us
Thoughts never end

Girls and white dresses
Blissfull rebirth
Passion with patience
Delicate twirl

So i see you
Now i know you
Couldn’t even
Take my mind of you
You’re delicious
I’m only greedy when i’m with you

All my life
You’ve always been there
Oh my love
Please always stay that way

Slow flakes of longing
when melting away
Excitement in close up
Fear leaves the day

Cream colored roses
Laughing till dawn
Thinking of future
With you along

All my life….
Track Name: Aisha
As you are today
As you were away
So far, yet so near
Memories take me away to you
Silently

In a state of mind
Meditate and find
The sound of a time
That was ours, big and beautiful
A melody...

At the time when minor was gay
Blues would sigh and sail away
Fear of songs withouth a faith
Tremble our minds and took us away

In a smile you are
In our time so far
But speak, speak to me
Not in words but in melody
Beautifly
Track Name: One
Get up, work hard
Make sure that you pay your rent
Fit in, hold back
Never let them get thru your skin
Stay fit, eat well, spend your cash every day
Stay ahead and always on msn

Why do we let money rule our every day
Silently our love for life will slip away
Now’s the time to make the change - Fire away
One step forward is Giant steps –so what do you say?

Mind, body and motion will
Give us notion to
Find a direction
Cos we are To to together
Cos we are to to together
Cos we are one!

Strand up ahead
Do the things you wanna do
Add up, reach out
Find the words that’s true to you
Delight, light up
Brush right up and navigate
Fast Food –is it you or it yesterday?

One, First, Unity, Together, Family, Love, In love, Smiles, eyes, Butterflies, Summer, Open fields, Freedom, Breath,
Calm, thought, Listen, Notice, Community, Power, Solidarity, one!
Fast Food melody…
Track Name: Shining Star
Melodies come out to play
When you’re here, wont contemplate
Ease my mind and sooth my soul
You ar ethe finest one of them all
A shining star, is what you are, a shining star

Beautiful to all extent
Recognize all talent in
Our souls and in hearts
Cos you are the brightest one of them all
A shining star, is what you are, a shining star

What if all would be contort
You would fail and i will fall
Tears in my eyes, tears in my eyes
To follow

As we are, we are the best
Integrate and stimulate
You and me, so silently
We are the strongest ones of them all
A shining star, is what you are, a shining star

What if all, what if all
Fall in place and catch my fall
Dreams all around
Real and profound
To follow

Sweet embrace, sweet embrace
Track Name: So Blue and Green
Cut it out, I’m reaching for the day you light
I gotta go to make it right,
For directions

Blue and sad, but really extra ordinaire
The size and depth and character
Brings peace and pleasure

Tossed between the blue in green
Tossed between the sky and see me

Sail away on seven seas and cease the day
Find a home and dream the dream that never ends
All we need is harbour lights to guide our way

I wonder where, I wonder why, I make a wish on a falling star. To take me far, to take me high, before I die to the moon I fly
Track Name: CPW
Central Park is the one I need
Giving love when you least belive
So make sure now as you recieve
All you get needs to be free
So release your mysteries

Big and green as you reach for me
Makes me fly thru your endless sea
Both the beauty and bold recieves
All your strength uncunningly
Neccitate spiritually
Track Name: Favorite Seduction
Raindrops of roses
Favorite things
Enlightment beyond us
Thoughts never end

Girls and white dresses
Blissfull rebirth
Passion with patience
Delicate twirl

So i see you
Now i know you
Couldn’t even
Take my mind of you
You’re delicious
I’m only greedy when i’m with you

All my life
You’ve always been there
Oh my love
Please always stay that way

Slow flakes of longing
when melting away
Excitement in close up
Fear leaves the day

Cream colored roses
Laughing till dawn
Thinking of future
With you along

All my life….
