“Marinaro’s brisk tempo, alternate melody notes, velvety timbre, taut vibrato and translucent pianissimos immediately announced that this was going to be Marinaro’s night, not Sinatra’s.”Howard Reich, Chicago Tribune, “A CJO Salute to ‘Sinatra at the Sands’ featuring Paul Marinaro’ “

“A formidable singer, bold and evocative…Marinaro has evolved into one of the most accomplished and promising jazz-swing vocalists in the country…one of the most beautiful vocal instruments in the business today.”Howard Reich, Chicago Tribune

“He swings hard …a giant baritone that manages to be both virile and gorgeous, Marinaro infuses the essence of jazz – the imaginative phrasing, the small expressive gesture, and yes, that swing – into every interpretation.”Neil Tesser; Examiner; author, music critic, Grammy Winner (liner notes)

“Right there under your nose in Chicago is a singer named Paul Marinaro who is the best I’ve heard in many years. His insight and command over this material is truly staggering, making him one of that select cadre of storytellers. 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 record promoter/agent whose clients have included Nat King Cole, Peggy Lee, Mel Torme, Tony Bennett, and Sarah Vaughan)
