Born and raised in Los Angeles, California, Lorraina Marro has made her mark as a classy, sophisticated and talented jazz vocalist, who is passionate about her music and committed to interpreting songs in her own style. Her live performances display her joy in singing, her charm, warm sense of humor and genuine connection with her audience. Her own life experiences help breathe life into the lyrics she sings, whether it be a ballad that tears at the heartstrings or a lively up tempo number that makes you want to smile and tap your feet on the floor.
Growing up, Lorraina was heavily influenced by one legendary vocalist in particular – Nancy Wilson, but also credits other extraordinary singers such as Della Reese, Dinah Washington, Frank Sinatra, Dionne Warwick, and Barbra Streisand for inspiring her to develop and share her gift with the world.
Lorraina has performed her own shows at multiple venues in Los Angeles, including Preston’s (Loew’s Hollywod Hotel), The House of Blues, The Catalina Bar & Grill, Nola’s LA, The M Bar, The Hollywood Studio Bar & Grill, The Holly St. Bar & Grill, The Cinegrill, The Gardenia, The Bel Age Hotel, the Marriott Hotels, and Wyndham Hotels. She has also performed in Las Vegas on several occasions for The Special Operations Warriors Foundation at the Four Seasons, The Aladdin, and The Las Vegas Hilton Hotels. In addition, she has performed her own show at Danny’s Skylight Room in New York.
In the past, Lorraina was selected as one of only 25 talented vocalists across the United States to participate in the Mercer/Sundance Theatre Program at the Sundance Institute in Utah, with master teachers Alan & Marilyn Bergman; Betty Buckley; Malcom Gets; Carol Hall & Margaret Whiting.
Lorraina released her debut CD entitled “You Must Believe in Spring” at The Catalina Bar & Grill in March 2004; and released her first music video of “If Ever I Would Leave You” from her CD in April 2012, which can be viewed at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-B0MH48st2k.
While married for 27 years and raising two children, Lorraina’s focus was on her family. Now she is focused on making a name for herself and establishing herself in the world of jazz.
She now resides in Simi Valley, California, and is in the process of writing her own lyrics and recording new material to be released early 2013.

The Jazz Network is exactly what the title suggests, a place where you get to mix and mingle with those who have not only an appreciation for Jazz but a forum to hear new up and coming artists as well. I've hooked up with so many of my old friends that I've lost contact with over the years here and it's been a great place to meet folk, appreciate good music and Musicianship. What an incredible idea!!
The great composer and bandleader was distraught over the 1967 death of Billy Strayhorn, his songwriting and arranging partner of 28 years. But Ellington took Strayhorn's passing as an impetus, born of necessity, to increase his own productivity. Here are five examples.
At the Village Vanguard, one flight down from the hubbub of New York City, in a tight space packed with people, we're about to embark on a musical odyssey by sea. Our captain is saxophonist Chris Potter, who's launching his Odyssey-inspired album The Sirens.
Divine: The Jazz Albums, 1954-1958 packs four CDs with Vaughan's music, recorded live or in the studio with bands big and small. Two live albums from Chicago nightclubs are standouts, partly when a performance threatens to slide off the rails.
