"Overnight Success", the title track of Peter Marin's first full lenght CD, says it all! This self-penned, tongue-in-cheek look at his life in the music business will bring a tap to your toe,a smile to your face, and encouragement to those with the blues from payin' their dues!!!
Peter began singing professionally at an early age, and while in his teens, had the great fortune to be mentored by two fabulous singers; Johnny Profit and Andy Williams. The level of performance and professionalism they taught Peter has served him well, allowing him to have worked with top names in show business for more than 40 years. Jack Jones, Johnny Hartman, Lou Rawls and Frank Sinatra also heavily influenced Peter through their work and their generous spirits. With this in mind, Peter selected songs to pay tribute to them; to Jack Jones with "You've Changed/"Round Midnight", to Mr. Sinatra with "Dindi" and "Angel Eyes" To Lou Rawls with "Autumn Leaves", and to Johnny Hartman with "I'm Glad There Is You" and "The More I See You", who's versions of these songs are the standard, and to Mr. Profit and Williams in the title song.
Peter's love and respect for the music is evident in every lyrical phrase of his fresh, honest and heart-felt delivery, making this collection of standards a must listen to! Joined by the genius of Frank Unzueta(p) and his trio, Larry Steen(b), Gordon Peeke(d), plus Evan Marks(g) Rocco Presutti(b) and Guy Eckstine(d), "Overnight Success" should be just that....so,..." with more than 40 years of makin' music with the best" lets welcome this "Overnight Success"!
