ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
After spending a decade working in Chicago climbing the ranks as a respected, straight-ahead jazz singer, Paul Marinaro introduces himself to those who've not had the opportunity to hear him perform live with his debut album, Without a Song, in tribute to his father. Paul masters the essence of both ballads and up-tempo swing with equal ease and his interpretations are, at the same time, modern yet sentimental. His delivery places the utmost attention on intelligent but playful lyrical understanding and though influenced by the masters of the genre, he is a true original, sounding only like himself; a modern classic.

“Right there under your nose in Chicago is a singer named Paul Marinaro who is the best I've heard in many years and is, very likely, the most skilled. Hands down. To anyone who really listens, it will become immediately apparent that he differs from all other present day singers - no matter what the category to which they belong. And if I were asked wherein he differs, the simplest and most fitting answer is that he's totally honest. You'll believe every word he says. Whatever you call this
rare and special quality, Marinaro has it big time which, clearly, makes him one of that select cadre of storytellers.
He's able to draw out the very essence of a song by simply singing the lyrics and notes with unadorned sincerity. Consequently, he makes every song fresh and full-faced - as if each was important news. With his excellent tone, he can float a lyric without ever losing his grip on it. His insight and command over the material is truly staggering. Actually, there's a deceptive air of simplicity in his singing. Like Nat Cole, it's art so close to perfection that it seems almost artless.
I've heard many new singers and no one has touched me as deeply as this guy. He's got it all. “
-Dick LaPalm (Legendary jazz and pop record promoter and agent whose clients, in addition to Nat King Cole, have included Peggy Lee, Mel Torme, Sarah Vaughan, the Modern Jazz Quartet, Woody Herman, Count Basie, Sonny Rollins and many others)

"(a) formidable singer...bold...evocative...an exquisite new recording...a stunning debut...documenting one of the most beautiful vocal instruments in the business today..." Howard Reich, Chicago Tribune

"...sung with unforced conviction and painterly detail..."
"a giant baritone...both virile and gorgeous."
"smart and stirring melodic paraphrases...imaginative"
"He swings hard..." Neil Tesser, ChicagoMusic.org

"If you can sit through Paul Marinaro's Without A Song and not be thoroughly entertained or at the very least smile then be patient because your autopsy results should be back shortly."
Brent Black@CriticalJazz
