(SEE VIDEO BELOW) Lex de Azevedo as you've never heard him play before: "up close" in HIS studio, on HIS piano: a very exclusive and intimate performance of the best of Lex's works--his personal favorites:
DEAR FRIENDS, This is an unapologetic advertisement for my first personal concert in over 15 years. "Up Close with Lex de Azevedo" will be held at Azevedo Studios, the recording studio where I recorded all my music since 1993. We will perform selections from my two jazz CDs, "Mountains" and "Moab", music from the BPS series, "Signingtime". I will also perform and talk about creating "Saturday's Warrior", "My Turn On Earth", "Debbie, Diary of a Mormon Girl" and "Charley." We'll also have some surprise performances from some of the original cast members of those shows. Members of the Millennium Choir will join with us in performances of selections from "Variations On A Sacred Theme," "Hymn To America" and "Gloria." It will be "huge" musical evening in our little 300-seat venue. Please join us. Hope to see you there!
This video (below) speaks to Lex's magnificence as a composer and arranger. His music can be grand or simple...even celestial. It touches the listener's very soul. His music testifies to having been created spiritually before it was created temporally. (Lex's impressive biography begins below the video.)
While the extent and scope of Lex de Azevedo's musical genius could not be predicted, his aptitude for music certainly could. His mother was Alyce King of "The King Sisters." His grandfather was a recognized composer. Music is in his blood, you might say. From a very young age, his mother encouraged him to experiment to find just the right chord, just the right combination of notes to create a mood or feeling.
He is known primarily for his film scores and his work on The Swan Princess of which one of his songs "Far Longer than Forever" was nominated for a Golden Globe Award in 1995.
Lex was musical director for The Sonny & Cher Show, Michael Jackson, The Jackson Five, The Osmonds and The Donny and Marie Show.
He composed the scores for the films Where the Red Fern Grows and the The Swan Princess. He also co-wrote and produced the music for the LDS musical Saturday's Warrior.
During the 1960s, De Azevedo produced several albums for Capitol Records, including the hit version of the Isley Brothers' "Nobody but Me", which rose to #8 on the charts in 1968, performed by the Human Beinz quartet.
