Review Highlights...


"Marcellino/Stefani Earn A+"


"If you like listening to warhorse jazz ballads and if you would have liked hearing a Stan Getz and a Joe Pass doing them in duo, than this is the 'keeper' album for you."


"So how does a rhythm and blues sax man handle the standard jazz fare? With tender loving care, that's how. Marcellino's tone quality is as strikingly rich, round and smooth as what you get with Getz. They also share an affinity for the upper registry of the tenor sax - the part of that horn that is the most difficult to control and to play in perfect pitch."


"Listening to these twelve familiar ballads, one encounters in Marcellino a master virtuoso at work in terms of his command of the instrument and his penchant for always delivering the sweet note."


"His playing partner, Mark Stefani, the son of noted jazz trombonist Roy Stefani, is no slouch either. Stefani lists George Benson and Kenny Burrell as influences. I heard a little Barney Kessel in his playing, too. His ability to lead a soloist around a room in a musical dance that never misses a step or a beat is reminiscent of Kessel's backing of Julie London on the classic LP "Julie is Her Name."


"I can't remember when I've been so entranced by an album. Five Stars!"


- Wayne Thompson (Jazzscene Magazine)
