Album Notes
Recorded Live in Chicago at High-Hat Club

Since making Chicago my home over a decade ago, I have been blessed to have had the consistent weekly opportunity to do what I love and doubly blessed to have found an incredibly faithful audience and incredibly talented musicians. There is no more treasured a space for me than in an intimate club, on a stage, mic in hand, flanked by my musicians and the audience. I am forever indebted to each.

Of all of the Chicago venues, the one at 1920 West Irving Park Road was paramount to me and my career as a vocalist. Now reopened as High-Hat Club, for 15 years prior it had been Katerina’s, one of Chicago’s most beloved music venues and a “home” to me.

As an artist, the experience of performing for a supportive audience in an intimate space is like nothing else. The ideas and energy created from the exchange between audience and musician results in a heightened experience that can never be duplicated. Some of my favorite classic albums have been live recordings for this very reason. The musicians are heard in a direct and wholly unique response to their surroundings and you are able to revisit that moment in time as it occurred.

On a sweltering night in June, my faithful Chicago audience poured themselves into the intimacy of 1920 West Irving Park Road once again. With the tunes picked, my A-list band assembled, and in the spirit of all of my past experiences in that space, I recorded the album you now hold in your hands.

With every note played and sung, every comment made, every laugh shared, every glass clinked and every fork dropped, I truly hope you enjoy revisiting with me, the night and the music of June 10, 2015 at High-Hat Club.

One singer. One band. One audience. One set. One take. One Night In Chicago.

~Paul Marinaro

“Right there under your nose in Chicago is a singer named Paul Marinaro who is the best I've heard in many years. His insight and command over this material is truly staggering, making him one of that select cadre of storytellers. Like Nat Cole, it's art so close to perfection that it seems almost artless. I've heard many new singers and no one has touched me as deeply as this guy. He's got it all.
— Dick LaPalm - jazz record promoter/agent whose clients have included Nat King Cole, Peggy Lee, Mel Torme, and Sarah Vaughan

“Marinaro was at once vocalist, narrator, storyteller, historian and the most dapper and elegant of tour guides as the trio musically transported us...
— Randy Freedman - Chicago Jazz Magazine

“A formidable singer, bold and evocative…Marinaro has evolved into one of the most accomplished and promising jazz-swing vocalists in the country…one of the most beautiful vocal instruments in the business today.
— Howard Reich - Chicago Tribune

“He swings hard …a giant baritone that manages to be both virile and gorgeous, Marinaro infuses the essence of jazz – the imaginative phrasing, the small expressive gesture, and yes, that swing – into every interpretation.
— Neil Tesser - Examiner; author, music critic, Grammy Winner (liner notes)

“Paul is a mesmerizing singer and performer, and a charming historian of the Great American Songbook.
— Randy Freedman - Chicago Jazz Magazine

“Marinaro weaves a spell that makes you forget about the outside world as you're held captive by his talent. (**** of 4 stars)
— TimeOut Chicago
