Whether you're into jazz, Broadway, the blues or Latin music, you're sure to enjoy the diversity of Lorraina Marro's long-awaited debut CD entitled "You Must Believe in Spring." In addition to the lyrically beautiful "You Must Believe in Spring" (Alan & Marilyn Bergman/Michel Legrand), her CD includes such favorites as "Soon" (George & Ira Gershwin); "If Ever I Would Leave You" (Lerner & Lowe); "Music" (a contemporary jazz samba by Ann Hampton Callaway); and "Id Rather Talk About You" (a blues number written by jazz vocalist Rene Marie).
Ms. Marro has performed in several Los Angeles nightclubs, including the Catalina Bar & Grill, the Gardenia, the Cinegrill, The Jazz Spot, the Holly Street Bar & Grill, and the Bel Age Hotel, as well as performing for the Special Operations Warriors Foundation Gala in Las Vegas.
Regarding Lorraina's CD release show at The Catalina Bar & Grill, Gina Zollman of The Beverly Hills Outlook comments that "Lorraina's voice is lustrous, a warm jazz soprano with tinges of sensuality thrown in for good measure. Her voice is dreamy and consistently smooth, with a slight, sweet vibrato. Lorraina finished up her delightful set with an encore, after a rousing and well-deserved standing ovation. "The Shadow of Your Smile" was a pleasing, sentimental coda to an honest, well-rehearsed and superbly mounted CD party to beat the band. Well done, Lorraina and company, they don't make 'em like you anymore."
Lorraina made her New York debut in October 2004 at Danny's Skylight Room. Stu Hamstra from Cabaret Hotline Online stated "With heavenly vocals that lean to the jazz style, this was an evening that I enjoyed completely. The audience surely got their money's worth. I look forward to a return visit from that super singer soon."
"Whether playing to 500 people in Las Vegas or in more intimate settings, Lorraina commands the room. Her gentle crafting, lyrical excellence, charm and style wrap around any song that she performs to perfection" - Rick Steinberg, National Chair of the Gala for The Children of Heroes.
