"There's a cool and soothing quality in Sam's voice and delivery which are reminiscent of the classic Sinatra at his best."
Rod Marino, Associated Content from Yahoo, Arts & Entertainment

"Sam Fazio’s debut, The Songs We Love, shows off his warm, inviting instrument, the timbre pitched somewhere between Sinatra and Elling. His cabaret-crooner instincts vie with jazz phrasing – and a brightly swinging rhythm section – on light readings of the American Songbook."

Neil Tesser, Chicago Jazz Music Examiner and Author of Playboy Guide to Jazz

"A singer with a clean, warm voice and attractive delivery, Sam Fazio is not your usual jazz singer, as he blends the type of voice that would sound good on Broadway with an overt Sinatra influence in what is a winning combination."
Brad Walseth, www.jazzchicago.net

"...Fazio's evocative voice, precise phrasing, and almost operatic delivery that nevertheless avoids theatrical excesses. Comparisions can be made with other male vocalists such as Harry Connick Jr., or the quintessential crooner Frank Sinatra but Fazio is very much his own man."
Hrayr Attarian, Chicago Jazz Magazine

Smooth is being re-defined. Sam Fazio handles the classics with gentle, respectful care. There’s a purity in his voice that puts a wonderful, new spin on songs that you love. “

“Too long away from music, Sam Fazio has returned and what a delight that is. He is a singer of great gifts and sure charm."
