Elisa’s voice was the perfect instrument, her technique the kind many singers work at to achieve but which she managed by native instinct.
We spent a few months on original work, my songs with her on top, then some of Robbie’s acoustic guitar added, arrangements stripped to a minimum. Occasionally for fun we would record covers capturing Elisa as the ballad singer she considered herself to be. Here, Dion, Houston, Ross, Krall and Keys were effortlessly equalled in tracks mostly done in single takes with no rehearsals, no drop-ins or overdubs, and no corrections.
A truly outstanding talent.
