To celebrate the release of acclaimed vocalist Paul Marinaro’s long-awaited album Not Quite Yet, Paul will be performing the album in its entirety backed by a 12-piece band of Chicago’s finest musicians. Featuring brilliant arrangements by guitarist Mike Allemana, Not Quite Yet is the singer’s very personal exploration of life and love, pondering ‘what’s next’ after the global pandemic.




“Marinaro has made the album he needed to hear at a crucial point in our shared history…an entirely personal album…that many others will need to hear too.” (Neil Tesser, Grammy Award-winning journalist, radio host, music critic, and author)

“A superb singer…one of the most beautiful vocal instruments in the business today…the most accomplished and promising jazz-swing vocalists in the country.” (Howard Reich, Chicago Tribune)
