Anna Maria Mannarino sings a variety of song styles such as swing, jazz, pop and ballads. Though her inspiration has come from musical greats such Ella Fitzgerald, Judy Garland and Barbra Streisand, her distinctive interpretation, approach and style are all her own.
Velvet voice. Possessing a warm, open soprano, a smooth swing feel and a way with a lyric, she can take standards like ?Day by Day? and ?Embraceable You? and make them come to life in a refreshing manner.? Zan Stewart – StarLedger
Anna Maria is a native of New Jersey who has sung throughout New York and New Jersey. Most recently, she appeared as a special guest with Ted Curson on his tour in Paris. ?This was a great privilege and opportunity?, says Anna Maria. Ted?s talent is equal to his exuberant personality and generosity of spirit; and I am both thrilled and humbled by his constant encouragement of my music.?
