ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Singer, presentation host & song text writer Willem van Leeuwen

Willem van Leeuwen has a passion for music and performing.
He strikingly puts his songs on stage and has an eye for the right atmosphere during his shows. Singer, presentation host & song text writer Willem van Leeuwen is a real perfectionist. He wants people to enjoy. His performance on stage will guarantee a good time for the whole audience. With his own lyrics he creates his own style. His Dutch, but especially English repertoire is selected with only one goal: entertainment at a high level.

Willem van Leeuwen released his first real album Mijn Wereld / My World.
The CD was recorded in the beginning of 2007 at the studio of mediasaloon, Zeewolde, The Netherlands. The CD contains 10 numbers of which quite a few will be well-known songs rewritten with his own lyrics.

Terrific Dutch Big Band CD pf Mainly American Well-Known Songs
“Mijn Wereld (My World)” is the terrific big band/jazz debut from singer/songwriter Willem Van Leeuwen that features big band standards and Van Leeuwen originals. Lead by the crooning vocals of Van Leeuwen, not unlike Frank Sinatra and Michael Bublé, “Mijn Wereld (My World)” is filled with splashy big band arrangements of booming horns and woodwinds, as well as some great piano jazz. This release is filled with fun and upbeat songs that make you smile and sway, including Dutch big band renditions of classics from the Great American Songbook, including “I Feel Good” and “Strangers in the Night,” respectively entitled “Voel Me Goed” and “Vreemdgaan in De Nacht.” “Mijn Wereld (My World)” is well-produced, and the recordings and arrangements all sound outstanding. “Geboren Uit Nood (One for My Baby)” is a pleasant, jazzy track with beautiful piano work, a simple but fitting drum beat, and a lovely vocal performance from Van Leeuwen. “Droom (Home)” is an emotive closer with more excellent piano work and crooning vocals. With “Mijn Wereld (My World),” Willem Van Leeuwen has welcomed us to his world with open arms, no matter what language we speak. Fans of Dutch big band and jazz are definitely going to want to pick this one up.
