Born in Avalon, Vinny Fazzari fell early in his life for the music of The Beatles. An influence of which on his first real solo album there is some comparison, but all the more present on the already released Lost Songs: Songs The Beatles Wrote But Never Recorded which Fazzari performed on and produced. Fazzari already has a long record, among other things as a recording engineer and producer (Bob Dylan, earth Wind and Fire) and he was awarded the title Best International Solo Artist at the Lost Angeles Music Awards.
Live Life Long is clearly the West Coast background of Fazzari's music including the opener, ' I'll Have It Made ' with the subtle, Van Dyke Parks-like marimba. Vinny recently used Amsterdam as his base for his European tour which finds its impact in the modest hit ' Amsterdam ', not totally unrelated to a cliche (' Amsterdam, you don't see wooden shoes around here much anymore '), but it is by far, a beautiful ode to our capital city. Allthough it must also be said that Fazzari is a little monogamous because in the short, but beautiful ' In LA ' he sings with just as much love for Los Angeles.
Another striking track is the only cover on the album: the Judy Garland Classic 'Over The Rainbow' (here simply called 'Rainbow''). It's a cheerful optimistic version of the famous track, where multi-instrumentalist Fazzari plays all the instruments. Live Life Long is a beautifully, versatile debut album where optimism dominates, wether it's the song 'It's A New Beginning' or the title track 'Live Life Long', Fazzari is someone we must keep in the gate!
