Diane Marino gives a new and exciting twist to some venerable standards and deftly performs a few relatively rare tunes.
"I Concentrate On You" The tempo is way up on this one and it works perfectly as the marriage between the lyrics and melody is one made in heaven.
"On The Street Where You Live" is reborn in Diane Marino's haunting and sweet substantive lyricism. Her phrasing is noteworthy and the texture of her voice is showcased beautifully.
"I'm Glad There Is You" Marino sings the verse to this significant example of the American Love Song in all it's glory..This song epitomizes beautiful lyric writing and an exquisite melody in a true expression of the pinnacle of sophistication and style. A fine saxophone solo punctuates the intensity of this magical composition. This is an extraordinary version of an extraordinary love poem.
A fine ensemble adds to the eloquence and celebration of verse by a very talented musician / vocalist ..Diane Marino
