ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
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.

I'd like to take her voice home with me.
Years ago, when first I heard Lorraina sing at the prestigious Gardenia club in Hollywood, I whispered to my friends: "Where has this woman been hiding? I'd like to take her voice home with me."
At last, the release of her first CD, "You Must Believe in Spring," has made that possible. Her unique soprano jazz artistry, her variety of songs ... well, let me just say this: It was worth the wait and then some!
Sit back, pour yourself a glass of wine, and savor. You'll be glad you did.

Timeless songs from a singer whose lilting sincerity makes you feel she's singing only to you, "You Must Believe in Spring" swings, sambas and melts your heart.

George Neil

You will believe
“Oh, what a thrill!” to quote “Music,” the first of twelve cuts on Lorraina Marro’s CD "You Must Believe in Spring." It’s an apt keynote. The golden-tinged saxophone tones of her richly hued mezzo voice, her unerring sense of swing, her sly wit and the album’s solid backing and production values combine to take you on a delightful ride.

Accompanied masterfully by Gil Lieb on piano with Bill Severance on drums/percussion and track-specific bass, guitar/harmonica and trumpet backup, Ms. Marro covers a satisfyingly wide range of territory. “Music,” “I Hadn’t Anyone Till You,” “Soon” and “I’d Rather Talk about You” all groove irresistibly. “If Ever I Would Leave You,” “Cuando Vuelva a tu Lado” (surprise! -- that’s “What a Difference a Day Makes” in Spanish) and “You Must Believe in Spring” conquer impressive emotional depths and heights. And the freshest choices in the collection (the charming “Come Down from the Tree” and “Danglin’”) need no categorization to be fully enjoyed.

You actually get more than 12 songs in these dozen cuts; clever arrangements interpolating “The Face I Love” with “Look at That Face” and “Deed I Do” with “Just in Time” make these song pairings seem like they were written to be combined in just the way they are. You’ll find your mind’s ear tracking through the modulations for days.

"You Must Believe in Spring" takes the listener through a rare, sensitive and compelling exploration of passion, wit and the joy of living. Put yourself in Lorraina Marro’s capable hands and enjoy the journey.

Love every minute!
Wow! Amazing arrangements, terrific song choices, makes me want to move and groove and sing along! Such an incredibly well produced CD. Vocals aren't lost in the background but are masterfully mixed with these awesome arrangements played impeccably by these fantastic musicians. Ms. Marro's voice is clear, bright, enchanting, inviting and delicious. "You Must Believe in Spring" makes you believe in music, life, love and Ms. Marro!

Lori Donato

Wonderful choice of material and lovely arrangements!
Lorraina's voice lends itself beautifully to these wonderful arrangements. Her heartfelt interpretations are very moving. Looking forward to the next release so we can hear more from her!

D. Bruce Stevens

A rare treat
There is a quality to Lorraina Marro's voice that is on par with such greats as Ella Fitzgerald, Patty Page, etc. This is not to be missed; Lorraina Marro shines head and shoulders above the usual mix. I've seen her perform live many times, and have given her CDs as much-appreciated gifts. Treat yourself to this incredible lady, you won't regret it.

Mary Beth Lundgren

My new Sunday morning-listening favorite
In a nice mix of standards and new-to-me songs, Lorraina Marro gives new meaning to the term "easy listening." Rather than the trite Muzik-style meaning of the phrase, this is wake-up-on-Sunday-morning music. Read the paper, put on your dancing shoes for the up-tempo numbers, and play it over and over.
Some of my prior Sunday morning favorites have been CDs from Nina Simone, Barbra Streisand, and K. D. Laing. Pleasant company, indeed, for Ms. Marro. "You Must Believe in Spring" is my new Sunday Morning-listening favorite.

Julie Esposito

Great choices, interpretation and arrangements
Lorraina Marro's voice is sweet, and she really `gets' what she is singing about! The song choices are a great mixture of known and lesser known, with terrific arrangements making them all new. I especially like "Come Down From The Tree," "If Ever I would Leave You," and "I'd Rather Talk About You," but every choice on the CD is a gem.

The Tolucan Times

CD serves wide range of music with the sweet, strong sound of Lorraina Marro.
Lorraina Marro's debut CD is a compilation of jazz, Broadway, blues and Latin style music. It offers strong arrangements with many jazz-flavored, cabaret type songs. One of the best cuts is Danglin' which is understated and features a very strong song.
