Paul Marinaro, a Chicago based jazz singer, released his debut album, "Without a Song" in June 2013. The album has received widespread critical acclaim, been featured on national radio programming, and has been a best seller, already in its second pressing. "Without a Song" was recently named one of the "Best of 2013" by critic Howard Reich in the Chicago Tribune.
This film clip gives a glimpse of Paul performing the Bob Dorough jazz standard "Devil May Care", both in the recording studio and live at Chicago's Jazz Showcase.
For an album inspired by his father's unfulfilled desire to have been a professional singer, Paul believes that these lyrics wonderfully introduce the conflicting realities faced by one who chases dreams. "He who is wise never tries to revise what's dead and gone".
Paul’s career, his musical journey, and the recording of this tribute album are the subject of a forthcoming documentary, “You Will Be My Music”.
