In terms of genre, Legacy could be classified as light adult alternative with a distinctively European flavor. Offering a "blend" of musical styles that range from the opening track, "Canto Por La Vida" (Music for Life) with it''s Neapolitan-like flavor to "Avo Bossa" a Jobim-inspired piece underpinned by the insouciant phrasings of tenor sax player and arranger, Brian Snapp.
There are also several tribute songs on the album which trace the course of Avo''s musical career like "Kreuzlingen," named for the Swiss village where Avo has been a welcome visitor for many years. "Cigar Store Boogie" emphasizes Avo''s fondness for traditional American jazz & blues with its colorful, boogie-woogie stomp. "Karyn" is a serenade to his daughter, Karyn Uvezian. This track is justifiably placed right before "Thinking Of You," wherein Ms. Uvezian supplies her own expressive vocal skills, comparable to the mellifluous tones of smooth-jazz singer, Sade. "Armen! ia," another song named for a locale close to Avo''s heart, is an emotional melody that''s reminiscent of French composer, Michel Legrand, in its orchestration. Moreover, it has a very "movie soundtrack" quality to it. The same could be said for most of the material on this CD and in a way, Legacy truly IS the soundtrack of Avo''s long and wonderful life.
