Without a Song, featuring Paul Marinaro, is a carefully crafted performance inspired
by his father’s unfulfilled dream to have been aprofessional singer. It is a meticulously
culled, exciting, and varied selection of standards on which Paul is accompanied by an
array of Chicago’s finest musicians. Paul incorporates the beginnings of his love affair
with music when, at the age of 5, he found his father’s homemade 78RPM acetate discs in
the attic, heard him singing That Old Black Magic, and was mesmerized. Little did his father
know that this scratchy recording would be Paul’s first musical inspiration…and little did he
know that it would be restored and used to open hisson’s debut album 66 years later.
