Recent Raves

“Diane Marino is an unusually unique talent… great pianist, vocalist and arranger”-

Les Davis-Real Jazz-Sirius/XM Radio

 Diane plays grooving piano, and as for Diane’s vocal skills, she’s one of the best I’ve heard in the past several years. Her voice and phrasing are great.”  Ric Bang – Jazz Scan

 “I love the album”(“Loads of Love”)…The audio band width is incredible, the piano performance is great, the  arrangements are great and Diane’s voice is perfect.  And don’t forget Houston Person. We are playing this CD!”

Saul Levine – KKJZ Los Angeles

 The collaboration of Marino & Person for “Loads of Love” is a winning combination and a step in the right direction for traditional jazz. A gorgeous collection of blues-influenced ballads and love songs.”Eric Harabadian- Jazz Inside Magazine

 “Diane Marino is a confident pianist and singer who is equally at home with ballads and rhythm tunes. If the results on this disc are indicative of the quality of her prior efforts, I plan on checking them out soon”-Jersey Jazz Journal

 Ms. Marino’s talent is quietly insistent – a half-dozen tracks in, I really began to savor the subtelty in her delivery. She’s got that knack for interpreting vocals that only comes with having lived some of this stuff, and solid chops as a pianist, to boot!.” …Doug Boynton- Girl Singers.org

 The collaboration of Marino & Person for “Loads of Love” is a winning combination and a step in the right direction for traditional jazz. A gorgeous collection of blues-influenced ballads and love songs.”

 Eric Harabadian- Jazz Inside Magazine

 “Diane Marino: A top notch vocalist who’s styling, phrasing and interpretations are definite fortes! One of the best on the contemporary scene.” “Cafe Jazz” Ted Hasiuk, Host & Producer, Café Jazz

 Diane Marino is a most worthwhile singer/pianist/arranger. She is assisted by tenor sax ace Houston Person on many of this dozen-song program for “Loads of Love”. Diane and Houston wildly propel a rousing “Get Out Of Town” (Porter). What a euphoric opening number. “It Shouldn’t Happen To A Dream” (Ellington/ Hodges/ George) contains some of the most delicate, carefully laid back, loose singing you’ll ever hear. Diane just so easily lets it all hang out. Noteworthy again is Mr. Person. Ms. Marino’s piano/vocal just can’t be bettered.”  Dan Singer – “Singer’s Singers

 Diane Marino “Loads of Love”… “Loads of Love” -A killer set for when you’re in the mood for some sophistication with bounce, this is first class, solid, adult listening that connects.  Well done.”

MIDWEST RECORD / CHRIS SPECTOR, Editor and Publisher  

 Diane’s  singing and musicianship are outstanding!” Bob Collins – WRHU Jazz producer, LI, NY 

 “Loads of Love”-Diane Marino possesses impeccable phrasing, her voice has beautiful colors and tones and the new arrangements are lush without detracting from yet another wonderful recording from a truly magnificent vocalist and pianist”…  Joe Montague- Riveting Riffs Magazine
