Tony Marino & Havana Heat

Tony Marino (composer, pianist, leader) has created a loyal following and not all of his listeners are jazz enthusiast. His style seems to capture listeners from other genres continuously. Formerly known as Havana Heat, Tony continues to define his music with the area’s top musicians, under the new name Latin Jazz Sounds. This magnetic band performs both original compositions and jazz standards using various Latin styles of music: samba, bossa nova, frevo, tango, montuno, bolero, be bop, swing and calypso. His first cd Tony Marino and Havana Heat: “The Latin Jazz Project” was released January 1997. The cd debuted original jazz compositions using a variety of latin styles. Note For Note with sixteen new original compositions was released in 1999. On this cd, Tony took a new approach. He wrote, composed and recorded all of the instruments used, himself. He literally recorded this cd note for note, hence the name! “Samba De Say Party”, released in 2001, is “Adventurous and exploratory in combining the elements of Brazilian jazz with those of bolero, swing, tango, funk and others”. (Heidi Drockelman/Indie-Music) “BROAD STREET”(2003), pays tribute to his “Philadelphia roots” again using familiar latin rythms. The varied Brazilian and Latin material that inspired it is respectfully treated, with energy levels revealing both commitment towards and understanding of their respective sensual and lively natures. It features seven Latinized offerings from Marino and one each from Paquito D’ Rivera and Claudio Roditi -who are key personal and intellectual influences.” (~ Javier Antonio Quinones Ortiz) Tony’s fifth cd, cleverly named “5″ is an assortment of Jazz… Smooth , Modern, Odd Time, Bossa Nova, Waltz, Be Bop, Ballad, Samba, Organ Trio, and Blues. 5 surely has something for everyone! Tony’s followed “5″ with, “It’s Not That Complicated”. With 8 new compositions and 4 new arrangements… “It’s Not That Complicated” final cut “I Have To Go” has you wishing that that just weren’t true! Tony’s NEWEST, A Tune For Matt, will capture you too!
