Allen J. Venezio is a new, fresh trumpet artist who is passionate about music and about the trumpet. A music teacher by day and professional trumpet player by night, he plays with the smoothness akin to Chris Botti with a bit more bite. Like many of the great trumpet players of the past, he loans his voice to a few numbers (the highlight of which is his original composition “Life Love”) but the primary focus of his music is his sappy trumpet and dark, rich flugelhorn.
Each song on this album was chosen especially to create the mood for romance and love. He dedicated the album to his fiancee, who was also the inspiration behind “Life Love”. He hopes that when you hear the music on this album, you too will feel the passion and love for your significant other.
As a bonus, he recorded a beautiful version of The Star Spangled Banner as a tribute to his other inspiration for this recording, Chris Botti.
