“ SmoothJazz.com Review"
They call him Jazzboy… loved by music fans abroad, this young man has already performed all over the world and he’s just beginning! Dino Fiumara has a knack for blending sexy pop with Smooth Jazz sensibilities and great sax solos. His vocals are breathy and jazzy like George Michael and fun like Michael Buble… his musical arrangements are decidedly jazz, no doubt influenced by his noteworthy father, a first call jazz bassist in Pittsburgh, PA and the CEO of BSX Bass. Currently recording his forthcoming, full album in NY, Dino is 3 songs deep with “Jazzboy,” “Where the Music Takes Me,” and the most recent to roll out is “I Will Wait For You.” All three are available now on iTunes and you can hear his latest featured on SmoothJazz.com Global Radio! Start downloading this energetic collection of tunes, ‘cause you’re gonna love this Jazzboy!”
