In the last few months I decided to lay some of my ongoing projects aside for a time and dedicate myself to producing a new Massimo Ranieri album. Massimo just completed all his vocals last Thursday. The vocal sessions were all done in Rome. I participated (and produced) in the sessions via Zoom—not like being there, but in light of recent travel woes, it will do. Very unique sessions, as Massimo and I communicate in French, my Italian being absurdly limited and Bohemian. The engineer and I speak English to each other. In turn, he communicates back to Massimo in Italian, and Massimo gets back to me in French. It’s a fine mess that works quite well. The final masters will be delivered by the end of May, for a fall release. You guys will be one of the first to get a preview. Think you’ll like very much. Have a beautiful Easter weekend. Enjoy whatever small gifts you have or could find.
