“Loads of Love” gathers great reviews….

“Ms. Marino’s  talent is quietly insistent – a half-dozen tracks in, I really began to savor the subtlety 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. Gently swingly, eminently listenable, this album consists of a dozen covers, about half of ‘em – a little off the beaten track, but not by more than a tick or two. This will be on the ‘pod for a while, and selected tracks on the personal radio for a while longer. Very highly recommended.”

Doug Boynton- girlsingers.org – January 5, 2014

::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::“Diane Marino plays swinging piano, is an accomplished arranger and sings up a storm, – she’s one of the best I’ve heard in the past several years.  – add to that Diane’s well-crafted arrangements, and the resulting album deserves to be called special.  The backup musicians are excellent! Congratulations to all concerned!”

Ric Bang – Jazz Scan – August 29, 2013

::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::

“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, CA   June 21, 2013

::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::

“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  5/3/2013

:::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::

“Diane’s professionalism is the best and the interpretations are really intensive.”

Bruno Pollacci – Anima Jazz, “A Voice, A Soul” – Pisa, Italy 5/15/2013

:::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::

“Anytime you combine terrific vocal performances with outstanding arrangements, you’re gonna get what you have here. “Loads of Love” – A slam-dunk winner! “ 

Paul Richards Program Director, WHLI, NYC     4/25/2013

::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::

What a great álbum!! Your voice is great and Houston Person…what an excellent musician!  Congratulations to all the band. All the best for you!

Javier Escamez – nosolosmoothjazz.com  5/20/2013

:::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::

“Loads of Love”… Let me say you have another winner. Excellent mix. the whole CD is superb. I’m in love with “It Shouldn’t Happen To A Dream”. Houston’s Sax and your voice is melting, better then Sarah Vaughan or Dinah Washington’s versions!” 

Sal Calfa – Le Jazz Affair  4/14/2013

:::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::

 “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   4/12/13

::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::

 “Diane Marino “Loads of Love” .…..
…..And joy, and happiness, and skills, and variation… and so this can be the shortest review of a CD.., but a wonderful CD and an asset to everyone’s collection…”

Joost van Steen, host/producer Jazz & Blues Tour with Alphen Stad FM/TV The Netherlands  4/2/2013_

::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::

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.”
