  1. Whispering
In cart Not available Out of stock

Whispering was written back in 1920. It is an old standard that lends itself perfectly to a multiple guitar and vocal style presentation. This particular recording is a perfect example of the use of digitally-produced echos that give a new dimension to muted guitar picking and the sharp cascading runs that sweep back and forth; using ping-pong echoes that appear to bounce everywhere off virtual walls. Four separately-recorded and panned bass tracks provide a prominent and punctuated underpinning for the entire work.
Laurie’s five-track lead vocals in the third verse, a viola counterpoint under a syncopated guitar lead, and Laurie’s background vocals blending with a background string ensemble - make Whispering a pleasant example of what can be done with today’s digital recording technology.
