The boys have been teasing us a bit about what is next on their recording agenda. It seems that it will have a Latin flavor since they are working with their friend, Emilio Estefan. And remembering how we, the fans, love the tantalizing Latin beat of “Volare,” it would seem that we would embrace that style. But, just for fun, let’s consider some other styles of past musical icons that they might choose to emulate.
Since our boys have such a propensity for the beach, maybe they would like to try the Beach Boys’ style, one that has stood the test of time with its’ catchy tunes, captivating rhythm, and great harmony. The guys would really get into spirit of fun following in the Beach Boys footsteps.
Wouldn’t it be great to hear Igna taking the falsetto part of the Jersey Boys’ repertoire? He would be so good at it. He did some improvisations with the high notes of “Somebody to Love” that blew our socks off, plus he has the added asset of his adorably endearing facial expressions (those eyes!!) to go along with the voice.
Remember the Ink Spots? Most of you probably don’t. You might want to look them up. Their harmony and rhythm were so contagious they always left you wanting more. Remind you of Il Volo? Gianluca might have to dig down a bit to match the low notes, but hey, that guy can do anything he sets his mind to, right? They recorded some beautiful songs that would be great for our guys.
Speaking of great trios, let us not forget the Nat King Cole trio. Talk about sweet and mellow–just the style for Il Volo. Is anyone more sweet and mellow than our boys? Gianluca could easily handle Nat’s romantic solos with his own brand of style and panache.
And “sweet and mellow” brings to mind the Williams brothers, mainly Andy. Imagine Gian doing “Moon River” what a treat that would be. Piero, being the more dramatic sort, doesn’t often show us the softer side of his vocal technique, but he sings with such passion and expression that we know he would be breathtakingly spectacular doing some of Andy’s romantic songs.
Well, we will have to wait and see what the finished product of the most recent endeavor will be, but we know that it will be all in true ILVOLO STYLE. You can’t improve on perfection, and perfection is what they are.
So stay calm and get out your dancing shoes…..Tango, anyone??
