The Mandolin Tribute to Andrea Bocelli|
Single mandolin on melody, backed up by guitar and bass, in simple folky instrumentations. Most of the songs are the“greatest hits” of Andrea Bocelli’s opera/classical repertoire. (How do you have an instrumental tribute to an opera singer who didn’t write any of the songs he sang?)
1. one guitar accompanying one mandolin on melody; sweet slow ballad (been recently covered by silly pop stars, so less cool)
2. “Italian” sounding; midtempo folk song sound with lots of strummy mandolin and guitar; it’s in waltz time.
* 3. dreamy, like the title says, romance; mandolin on melody while guitar colors in the background with nonstop arpeggios.
* 4. “Italian” sounding again; very animated melody, tripping waltz (heard this song before . . .)
5. sparse chords and simple melody, meditative folky tune, free with the tempo
* 6. FAMOUS opera tune. One Italian products always write new lyrics for in their commercials. Uptempo, brisk and breezy and happy.
* 7. O Sole Mio—ANOTHER super famous song. Slow, with strummy mandolin, quiet backup, pretty. Good for gondoliering yourself down a starry Venetian canal. The longest track.
8. slow, meditative (it IS called The Prayer), sweet, more Adult Contemporary sounding, somehow.
* 9. Minor key folk song, midtempo, strummy guitar background, sultry feel
* 10. slow and dark; another pretty famous tune; very dark Spanish guitar-y. lots of fancy ornamental guitar playing.
