“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 -jazz promoter/agent whose clients have included Nat King Cole, Peggy Lee, Mel Torme, and Sarah Vaughan.
