FROM TUPELO TO MEMPHIS
"Following the Path of the King..."
ELVIS PRESLEY the man, the myth, the King....
The feeling goes beyond the music, the voice...
It is the soul of the artist.
The Aura of the artist
On June 4, 1970 Elvis Presley he would start recording again at the Nashville Studios.
Some sessions that would give rise to thirty-six songs that would be part of three
albums that would also be memorable in the Elvis discography.
Many of these songs considered average in appearance, in the voice of
Elvis will become great themes and some excellent ones for their
master's degree. Musicians were a bit skeptical at the beginning of these
sessions for the songs that are going to be performed, but as soon as Elvis
entered the study speak of a special aura, of his presence, of his
kindness of him, the way he treated him and above all an angel in his being who made
that everyone who met him fell in love with him.
When Elvis began to sing, no one had any doubt that these sessions would be incredible, they recognized him as a star.
Many musicians are extremely technical and give more importance to the technique than feeling. Elvis was not a technician, he was above all a perfectionist musician but absolutely dedicated, passionate and his feeling prevailed in all interpretation giving those songs
initially you average the master touch to make them big songs hard to forget. His way of approaching sheet music with all the force, claw, feeling they made any interpretation a culminating moment, essential and this caught every musician who accompanied regardless of the technique. Since the refinement of technique without feeling does not make the artist. And Elvis Presley
he was always a master in the art of singing, unlike others singers who have great voices, are very technical but don't have that gift
to convey the essence of music to the viewer. We will talk about these sessions in our next program FROM TUPELO TO MEMPHIS 48, which we will divide into three programs.
