Vocalist Sam Fazio Holiday CD Release Show at Mayne Stage
Chicago native, Sam Fazio, made his return to the music scene in 2009 and has been making an impact ever since. Sam’s music is hip, elegant and bold. Sam puts a new spin on the songs you love, as he interprets jazz standards and the American Songbook with class and care. Sam has performed sold-out shows at classic jazz clubs like Andy’s Jazz Club and Segal’s Jazz Showcase, and can be seen regularly at many venues and festivals throughout Chicagoland. In addition, Sam frequently performs shows outside the Chicago area, and recently returned from a performance run in New York City at the legendary 54 Below, Tavern on the Green, Le Cirque and Flatiron Room. Sam’s sophomore CD, I Wish You Love, was released on Blujazz Records and has received much acclaim from media and radio outlets.
Sam’s new holiday CD, Swingin’ thru the Holidays, will be released in early December. This CD includes some fresh and unique arrangements of the holiday songs we know and love. In this special CD release show, Sam will showcase songs from his new CD as well as other holiday favorites.
Sam is joined by Chris White on piano, who serves as musical director and arranger for the show and CD. The rhythm section is rounded out with two of Chicago’s best jazz performers, Joe Policastro on bass and Bob Rummage on drums. Well-known jazz trumpeter Victor Garcia also joins the group for the show and CD.
