Cabaret Jazz 

The veteran Nashville jazz singer drew national airplay and press raves for her recent album Just Groovin’ by tapping into the timeless melodic brilliance of a well-chosen list of pop and rock standards, most from the 1960s. Working with big-band arrangements and assisted by jazz blowers Houston Person and Kirk Whalum, the liquid-voiced Marino reworks familiar tunes like “Baby, It’s You,” “Walking in the Rain,” John Loudermilk’s great “Then You Can Tell Me Goodbye,” and “Groovin’,” done as a duet with Felix Cavaliere, whose soulful tenor powered the original Young Rascals hit. A Nashville club favorite in the ‘90s with the Latin jazz-rock band Som Brasileiro, Marino now concentrates on small-combo gigs softly lit with supper-club sophistication.
