“Buddha’s Ear” is an audiophile masterpiece. Terry Wollman’s guitar playing, writing, and production take us on a heartfelt musical journey influenced by his travels around the world. In his usual style, he once again brings together an all star band including John (JR) Robinson, Abraham Laboriel, Luis Conte, Greg Manning, Gerald Albright, Mindi Abair, Keb’ Mo’, Melanie Taylor and Melissa Manchester. He adds to the beauty of this recording with three string quartet arrangements recorded at the world renowned Capitol Studio.

A Mother’s Work

Three children gather round her bed
To say their last farewell
She’s happy to see how they’ve grown
Into these fine men standing before her
Her fear is soothed by their strong hands
That hold her tenderly
A mother’s work is almost done
A mother’s work is almost done

They watch and wait for her rebound
The hours turn to weeks
This fight is harder than she planned
The struggle almost over
Her heart is tired, her soul is strong
Hope fulfilled, her life complete
A mother’s work is almost done
A mother’s work is almost done

The last words that she spoke
Through her final tears were
“I’m so lucky to have you all here.”

Three men now gather round her bed
To love and guide her home
They comfort her and hold her near
And watch her slip away, her family now forever bound
Three men gathered round her bed
On mother’s final day
A mother’s work is finally done
A mother’s work is finally done

A mother’s work is finally done
A mother’s work is finally done

Right Where You Are

I see in your eyes… oh oh
This night feels like forever
I hear in your voice… whoh oh oh
Things won’t get much better

What would you pray for
If you knew the door was open

Are you ready for the answer
Everyday’s another chance and
You can try but
You can’t hide from your heart
Yeah it’s right where you are

Tell me how it feels…  oh oh
When your looking glass has shattered
And your life reveals… whoh oh oh
All the things that matter

What would you pray for
If you knew the door was open

Are you ready for the answer
Everyday’s another chance and
You can try but
You can’t hide from your heart
Yeah it’s right where you are

When you’re feeling that
Overpowering
Undeniable truth

Now you’re ready for the answer
Everyday’s another chance and
You can try but
You can’t hide from your heart
Yeah it’s right where you are

What would you pray for if you knew the door was open
