Album Notes
"Each track is infused with love. Tom Rocco's CD, 'Matters of the Heart,' inspires and moves the listener to action and tears. And laughter. An inspired recording."

Jeanine Tesori
Composer, "Caroline, or Change"

This CD features an eclectic mix of 12 songs...ranging from lesser-known Broadway tunes to standards to soulful ballads. Delivered with intensity and flair by this veteran of Broadway, off-Broadway and cabaret. Showcasing the talents of Deana Muro on keyboard, piano and backup vocals, Paul Thompson on bass and cello, Deborah A. Weible on drums and Maria Becoates-Bey on backup vocals. Also featured is a duet with NYC singing and standup comedy sensation, Kim Cea.

"This is a collection of songs that speak to my heart. I hope you're moved by the range of feelings they convey...from compassion to wistfulness to joy to hope. And, of course, love. We were all meant to experience that. Thank you for listening."


"Matters of the Heart" began life as a benefit cabaret performance for the Pulmonary Hypertension Association (PHA). In August of 2002, Tom's nephew, David, then 14, was diagnosed with primary pulmonary hypertension, a life threatening condition affecting the heart and lungs. In July of 2003, thanks to the hard work and dedication of family and friends "Matters of the Heart," rather than being just a show, became an event. The outpouring of love and support from the entire community was staggering. Everyone involved felt blessed to be a part of it.

In order to continue in our journey to finding a cure, one dollar from the sale of every copy of this CD will be donated to PHA, earmarked for pulmonary hypertension research. Thank you for your support.

Pulmonary hypertension is currently an illness without a cure. Yet, with expanding research and new treatments, there is growing hope. If you'd like to learn more about PHA or to make a contribution, please visit Together we can help make a difference that truly matters.

Ginny Berger

Creative, energizing, soft and soulful
The selections are diverse -- from soft and soulful to energetic toe tappers. The vocals are beautifully crisp, and clean --- drawing you into each song --- moving you through the gamut of emotions -- taking you to other places. It does what music is meant to do -- touch and move you.

Paul Balouris

Uplifting, beautifully rendered songs of love
Tom has a powerfully expressive voice, no doubt developed from his Broadway background. It's easy to tell that he had a blast putting this record together. Each song while unique has a recurring theme of love.
