Paul Marinaro – Tribute to Duke Ellington

Vocalist Paul Marinaro, dubbed as having “one of the most beautiful vocal instruments in the business today” by Howard Reich of the Chicago Tribune, is a modern classic. With Chicago as his home base, Paul has become one of the most in-demand and respected male vocalists and has “taken his place among the top five male jazz singers active today.” (Scott Yanow, LA Jazz Scene)

Paul’s latest album, Not Quite Yet released on October 28, 2022 and along with some beloved staples in Marinaro’s performance repertoire (Taking a Chance on Love, On A Wonderful Day Like Today, Someone To Light Up My Life), a couple compositions from David Bowie and Paul’s recorded debut of original lyrics (set to Ary Barroso’s É Luxo Só and released as Searching) gave audiences a chance to see a different side of the singer they have grown to love. GRAMMY Award-winning journalist Neil Tesser says of his project: “Marinaro has made the album he needed to hear at a crucial point in our shared history – an entirely personal album, that many others will need to hear too.” Not Quite Yet launched at Chicago’s stunning Studebaker Theatre.
