on the street where you live is the eagerly anticipated second CD release by pianist/vocalist DIANE MARINO.
Following her nationally acclaimed debut release A Sleepin'' Bee, this CD proves once again that DIANE is a natural whether playing, singing, or both.
on the street where you live will take the listener on a journey to the very depths of emotions. There is a re-current theme throughout this CD that tells stories of love, love lost, and a deep longing for the unreachable. Once I loved (O Amor Em Paz), Moanin'', and What Now My Love (played in a fresh, ''funky'' style) are examples of this theme.
The title cut, on the street where you live, has been heard many times, to be sure, but never will a version so deeply affect the listener as this arrangement by DIANE. Dark, haunting and melancholy, DIANE has transformed this familiar tune to one of deep, unreachable love. A beautiful soaring soprano sax solo by MITCH REILLY adds to the hypnotic mood of this piece.
The Jobim masterpiece, Retrato Em Branco E Preto (Picture in Black and White) also compliments this mood in an almost
semi-classical treatment of Portuguese vocal, piano and arco bass by FRANK MARINO.
Never one to dwell in one mood, DIANE ''S new release once again offers a variety of playful gems such as the Latin flare of Bernie''s Tune, a burning version of I Concentrate On You, and the Brazilian classic, Só Danço Samba.
Joining DIANE on this CD are bandmates FRANK MARINO (Bass), MITCH REILLY (Saxes and Flute), and CHRIS BROWN (drums).
on the street where you live ... another gift to the ears to treasure from DIANE MARINO and her quartet. ...
