Tony Marino

Tony Marino – “the quintessential Latin jazz keyboardist” – is now ten albums in and only getting stronger and stronger. Playing, composing, recording and producing original music over the last two decades is no small feat, and one Marino has seemingly pulled off – and with plenty of stellar reviews.

All of Marino’s music is original using various Latin styles of music: Samba, Bossa Nova, Frevo, Tango, Montuno, Bolero, Bebop, Swing, Baiao, Funk and Calypso to name a few. On one of his earlier Cds, Marino rearranged two songs of jazz greats Claudio Roditi and Paquito D'Rivera.

Tony Marino debuted his first original work in 1997 with ‘Tony Marino & Havana Heat: The Latin Jazz Project’ and he has been churning out album after album since, to critical acclaim. He’s been called “one hell of a talented pianist” and his musicianship has been described as “flawless, skillful and captivating”. The ability to capture listeners from other genres is a particular skill of Marino’s, “non-jazz fans may find plenty to love here”. Google Tony Marino and you will see positive review after positive review after positive review. That’s some serious kudos after nine albums; as one critic noted, “Tony Marino has lost none of his fire since his ’97 debut release”.

Marino has generated a worldwide following over his double-decade career so far, as evidenced by international radio airplay and streaming. Well, good news for his fans: Marino has a new release – ‘Family and Friends' – that’s been described as “superb, infectious and uplifting” coming out on January 12th, 2019.
