Hi Everyone! We have a new feature here on the blog! Most of you know Myron, but for those that don’t, he is a voice teacher and recently took some of his students to see Il Volo perform in Chicago. He has sometimes served as a regional judge for music competitions over the years, and has mentioned before that he loves to discuss the music.
We thought he would add a different aspect to our little home, and he will be talking about music: the boys’, performances, history, etc. We hope everyone will find it interesting if you don’t know much about music, and will engage in discussion and share your opinions as well. So, please enjoy his first piece! Kelly
The guys were in fine and, may I say, well rested singing voices. We Il Volo fans have all become used to very high vocal standards, and this was no exception. Wonderful. If I were to be a little, tiny bit “picky”, I felt Piero had a really special and excellent day. Gianluca and Ignazio were superb but this song works well for Piero.
Backup: I always wish for live orchestra – the Toinght Show does it, The Talk does not.
On this show the instrumental computer track was started a bit early as the group was just being announced. Thank goodness Gianluca (who starts the song) was on the ball and got it perfect. Having seen them live in Chicago to sing this exact song, I can tell you that the opening on the instrumental track is tricky. More proof of the high quality of musicians they are.
The entire segment ? I loved it. They were more relaxed and engaging than ever. They had fun with the ladies. My big thing about these talk shows is giving the guys more time to show their natural personality. This show has gotten better and better at doing that and today was warm and funny (Gianluca joking about Selena Gomez being his guest in Italy when she comes to take a cooking class and Ignazio joking about the eyes of one of the ladies) — one of the best Il Volo chat segments on network tv so far. I only wish Jay Leno would do that on the Tonight Show – have them over to the desk in the prior segment and chat with them and then have them sing in the next segment.
The TALK is always special because it was the very first American network show they ever did when they were 16 years old ! Back in fall of 2011.
Thank you, Myron!
