Thank you so much for uploading and exposing me to this fantastic record. Hi Kev, you're welcome, thanks for your comment.
The music on this album is great, hope you can also understand the Italian lyrics! Be nice, keep it clean, stay on topic, no spam, thank you!!! Pettegolezzi di madri ai fioriti balconi d'estate lontano i suoni di tristi canzoni, organetti stonati Le biciclette sui muri lasciate, quando poi pioveva e quell'odore di strade bagnate che nel cuore scendeva Fuggire, fuggire indietro tornare di nuovo scoprire gli azzurri orizzonti svanire tra i monti e perdersi, perdersi And the seasons chasing each other just like in an endless game down in the courtyards, on those green meadows, so boundless where children leave their dreams and innocent loves and daisies dressed in June teared off the ground Running away, running away going back in time and discover again the blue horizons disappear behind the mountains and get lost, get lost During his career he has written songs for a lot of renowned Italian artists.
He is also the author of several musicals and soundtracks. Fabrizio began studying music at the age of 11 at the "Giuseppe Verdi" Conservatory in Milan. He received a classical education piano, composition, percussion, bassoon and double bass , and combined it with a passion for the guitar. In the meantime, during those years he also played drums in a band. At the age of 17 he finished his experience at the conservatory, and around the same time one of his uncles introduced him to the music business.
That year they participated to the Mostra internazionale di musica leggera di Venezia , finishing in third place with " Come il vento ". In they also participated to the Sanremo Music Festival with the song " Andata e ritorno " without much success. They released a total of three singles before disbanding later during the same year. Sometime in , Fabrizio teamed up with lyricist Sergio Bardotti to work on " Azzurri orizzonti " - his debut album which is the subject of this post.
The making of the record also involved his brother Salvatore , who co-wrote two songs, and - among the other participants - Dario Baldan Bembo. During the second half of the '70s Fabrizio collaborated as music director and arranger on the best-selling albums by Angelo Branduardi " La luna " in , " Alla fiera dell'est " in , " La pulce d'acqua " in and " Cogli la prima mela " in On these album he also played guitar, piano and several other instruments. Fabrizio was also part of the band who accompanied Branduardi during his concerts, and this fruitful collaboration has continued over the years to the present day.
In Fabrizio recorded his second solo album, a Progressive Rock inspired record entitled " Movimenti nel cielo " " Movements In the Sky ". In this entirely instrumental work, symphonic scores blend with Rock music, especially in the longer tracks which are separated by shorter interludes fulfilled with strings and keyboards. Acoustic moments " Episodio Lunare " and Funk-ish numbers " Sputnik Suite " are also present among the grooves, as well as atmospheres reminding the early works of The Alan Parsons Project.
The ten compositions on this LP were written by him in solitude, including the lyrics to all the songs. The album was recorded in London and was co-produced by Furio Bozzetti , who had already worked with him on his debut LP " Azzurri orizzonti " a few years back. During the same year, Fabrizio met Giancarlo Lucariello , producer and talent scout of Pooh , Alice and Gianni Togni , who commissioned him the arrangements for the then latest albums by Togni and Riccardo Fogli a former member of Pooh.
In Fabrizio recorded his fourth album, which went to be his last solo effort for more than thirty years. Just like " Azzurri orizzonti ", " Personaggi " was released by Come il vento , and at the time of writing it has never been reissued in any form. All the lyrics on this record are by Guido Morra , a lyricist with whom Fabrizio has often teamed up with during the years.
Just like his previous releases, this album didn't climb the charts, and Fabrizio didn't seem to be able to conquer on his own the success he helped to create for other performers More and more of his songs were recorded by many renowned artists year after year. Surprisingly enough, in Fabrizio also wrote and produced an entire Italo-Disco album by a duo named New Glory. This release almost seems to be a family affair : all songs are co-written by his brother Salvatore and one half of the duo is none less than their younger brother Leonida Fabrizio!
This is a record that I would really like to explore in a future post, uhm Maurizio Fabrizio, circa late Maurizio Fabrizio, circa Newer Post Older Post Home. Subscribe to: Post Comments Atom.
