 “Diane Marino is an unusually unique talent- great pianist, vocalist and arranger”– Les Davis-Real Jazz-Sirius/XM

“Diane’s personal style provides the ultimate in cool for jazz listeners of all stripes. Her pacing is pure perfection, and her tones are full of the energy of life…A superb jazz vocal (“Soul Serenade-The Gloria Lynne Project) that you will treasure for years to come”. Dick Metcalf, Contemporary Fusion Reviews- 3/8/2018

 “A striking vocalist, Diane Marino chooses songs that bring out the emotional depth of her register. Her inflections make lyrics stand out in the listener’s mind”. Susan Franceson- Blog Critics, 3/22/2018

“Marino has an exceptional ability to enunciate a lyric clearly, and her timing fits that of a piano player, making the note hit just the right place for the most swinging effect” ‐ Jazz Weekly.com

 “Diane plays grooving piano, and as for Diane’s vocal skills, she’s one of the best I’ve heard in the past several years. Her voice and phrasing are great” – Ric Bang – Jazz Scan

Artist Links

While performing on a recent gig with drummer Vince Ector (Gloria’s drummer for 15 years), I sang ‘I’m Glad There Is You’, and he reminded me it was one of Gloria’s signature songs,” explained Marino. “So, I began to research more of Gloria’s work and was instantly mesmerized by her voice, style and emotion. Additionally, her choice of material was instantly appealing to me. I tend to look for songs that are “beyond the norm” of the Great American Songbook repertoire. The songs Gloria Lynne recorded during her career stand alone in their originality and uniqueness. Her performances of these particular tunes move me every time I hear them.”

Diane was born in Manhattan, NYC. She started her early piano training of classical studies and jazz improvisation from the age of 10. Diane graduated from NYC’S ‘Famed’ High School for the Performing Arts and  later received her B.M. degree from Mannes College of Music in Manhattan as a piano performance major where she studied piano with world-renowned concert pianist Murray Perahia.

An Evening of Musical Virtuosity: World Accordion Champion Cory Pesaturo with Enrico Granafei , Vitali Imereli and Christian Fabian
Apr 11 @ 8:00 pm – 11:00 pm
An Evening of Musical Virtuosity: World Accordion Champion Cory Pesaturo with Enrico Granafei , Vitali Imereli and Christian Fabian

2 sets:  7:00 p.m. and 8:30 p.m.
$15 pp music charge   $10 pp minimum (food/drink)

An Evening of Extraordinary Virtuosity
featuring 3 musicians who represent the finest on their instruments
This is a headliner act, but we are lucky to catch Cory while he is on his way down South. This is well worth a visit to Trumpets on a Thursday evening.

Cory Pesaturo (“C Pez”) is on the forefront of the accordion world, pushing the boundaries on multiple fronts of what is possible with the accordion. The only person to ever win the trio of World Championships on Acoustic, Digital & Jazz Accordion, and the only accordion graduate of the prestigious New England Conservatory of Music in Boston, MA. In 2017, Pesaturo became a Guinness World Record Holder, as RedBull® flew him to Austria to break the Marathon Accordion Record, in which Cory played for over 32 hours. Cory’s main contribution is his visionary thinking of how the accordion should be used, played, taught, and presented in modern music. He has given 2 TED Talk’s and 2 Google Talk’s about this, which are currently the only TED or Google talks in the world about the accordion. Pesaturo is also developing his own electric accordion, and already has made the first ever skinned accordion which includes a symmetric lighting system attached to the keys.

Pesaturo’s extensive resumé includes appearances at the White House for President and Mrs. Clinton on 4 different occasions, starting at age 12, and 8 other appearances for the Clintons since 2000, along with 14 letters from the first family. On one of those occasions, he became the youngest person to ever perform at a State Dinner, performing with the Marine Strolling Strings for the President of Hungary. Some TV appearances include the Late Show with David Letterman, performing with Johnny Depp, and nationally televised programs in New Zealand, Canada, Italy, Tunisia, France, and Finland. On an NYC broadcast, CNBC/FOX host Maria Bartiromo once said “No one is currently doing more for the Accordion than Cory”. He has judged accordion competitions in the US, Canada, and Europe, in addition to other music competitions, and currently gives masterclasses at various universities throughout the US and Europe on Accordion and Improvisation.

For his Classical side which is lesser known, a win in a concerto competition at 16 years old gave Pesaturo the rare opportunity to perform with the Brockton Symphony Orchestra as a featured soloist, where he became the youngest accordionist to ever solo with a symphony orchestra in the US back in 2003. Concerning his Jazz side, Cory recorded two CD’s with saxophone legend George Garzone and his known band “The Fringe” at age 19, and has become friends with Jazz and Music Legends Quincy Jones and Wynton Marsalis. His performances at all 3 of his World Championships were played on accordions that were not his, and were generally 90% improvised; both aspects are unheard of in the accordion world.

The instruments most famous legend in the US, Dick Contino, said when Cory was only 15, “Of all the accordionists I’ve seen over the years, Cory is the one to pass the torch to, the only one who has all the tools to bring the accordion back to its former glory.” Guido Deiro’s son, the “Father of Piano Accordion”, has stated “I’ve worried greatly about the future of the accordion since my father died, but not anymore since seeing and hearing Cory.”

Pesaturo is also heavily involved and respected with the weather and motor sports worlds as well. He composed the Official list of records set by the record-breaking 2005 Atlantic hurricane season and also wrote the lists for the 2007 and 2008 Seasons as well. Moreover, he has put out reports on Winter Seasons for the US which have been featured on Accuweather.com, HurricaneCirty.com, and others. Cory is known for his FreeSledding work, including his own sledding mountain called “CN Mountain”. He has written sports blogs for sites like Bleacher Report, and has collaborated with members of the Red Sox and the Drop Kick Murphy’s on the “Fenway 100″ album released in 2012. His music has been played on Formula 1 broadcasts on NBC, FOX, and Velocity, and additionally has an ongoing musical relationship with 98.5 The Sports Hub in Boston.

Born in Kutaisi, Georgia, Vitali Imereli began playing violin as a talented five-year-old at a music school, later completing his education in 1979 at the National Music Academy in Tbilisi. During the period 1979-85, Vitali acted as teacher at the Tbilisi College of Music. From 1978 to 1991, he participated in a variety of jazz festivals in several locations from Georgia through Russia and Europe in general.
In 1992, Vitali moved to Finland. Performances then ranged from Germany and Sweden to various parts of Finland, with TV appearances and radio programs following. Vitali has played at the internationally renowned Pori Jazz Festival every year since 1991, as well as at other important festivals in Finland. May 1996 saw the release of his new album “Tribute to Staphane Grappelli”.
In May and June of this year Vitali was on tour with Rosenberg Trio performing in Turku and Helsinki, then continuing on to the Kajaani, Alandia and Pori Jazz Festivals. Later in July he enjoyed successful performances with Didier Lockwood and Rosenberg Trio in a Tribute to Stephane Grappelli at the North Sea Jazz Festival.
Vitali has also played with Jack Hana, Art Blakey, Michael Urbaniak, Rosenberg Trio, Ulf Johansson, Bob Gulloti, Gipsy Kids, Daniel Walsh, Carlos Del Puerto, Didier Lockwood etc.
?Vitali Imereli masters the Grappelli (Stephane Grappelli) sound to the extent even the Maestro himself couldn?t tell who was playing. This Georgian-born violinist masters the modern styles as well.?
— Who?s Who at the North Sea Jazz Festival.

Enrico Granafei, harmonica virtuoso, classical guitarist, singer, songwriter, arranger, composer Enrico Granafei has a long history of musical experience which encompasses both Classical Music and Jazz. Enrico received a degree in classical guitar from the Conservatory of l’Aquila in Italy in 1976. His artistic career started in Rome where he soon became known in the musical community. In 1978 Enrico moved to Germany where he began to perform and to teach in two different “Musikschulen”. In the early 80’s, after returning to Italy, Enrico started to broaden his horizons by discovering Jazz through the harmonica.
Following in the tradition of the legendary Toots Thielemans, he began to explore new possibilities for the harmonica, an instrument too often associated solely with Rock and Blues. Besides playing in the best jazz clubs in Italy during that period, Enrico performed regularly on national television where he was a member of the Pippo Caruso orchestra. His love for Jazz led him to New York City, the world capital of Jazz, where he soon started to perform in local jazz clubs, including The Blue Note, Birdland, Visiones, Angry Squire, and the Bottom Line.
In 1992 Enrico earned a masters’ degree in Jazz Performance from the Manhattan School of Music where he was the only student of Toots Thielemans . During the time that he has resided in the New York area, he has performed extensively on the Chromatic Harmonica in the United States and continued to be a featured musician in major European Festivals, including Pori Jazz Festival (Finland), Euromeet Jazz Festival (Italy), Django Festival in Samois sur Seine (France) Budapest Music Festival (Hungary) and major clubs throughout Europe.
He has recorded with Eddie Gomez, Eliot Zigmund. Marc Johnson, Adam Nussbaum, Ted Curson, Nnena Freelon (Concord records) and many others.
Enrico’s latest accomplishment is his work on Hands-Free-Chromatic Harmonica. The revolutionary instrument invented by Vern Smith allows him to play Chromatic Harmonica and Guitar at the same time, something that nobody has ever done before in Jazz. Close your eyes and you will hear two or three musicians but in fact it’s only one! Enrico is one of the most respected players of the Chromatic Harmonica in the world today and continues to cultivate an audience for the instrument through his international performances.

8:30-9:30  The Dalton Gang

The Dalton Gang is a ten piece band led by guitarist, arranger and composer Willy Dalton. The band mixes jazz with a blend of funk and latin music.

The members are freelance musicians around the New York area. Among their credits are recordings and performances with such artists as Buddy Rich, Machito, Lionel Hampton, Tito Puente, Daniel Ponce, Cissy Houston, and others.

The Dalton Gang is a real “group,” not a band of musicians brought together for a special project. They performed for the first time in 1979 . They have performed over 100 original charts in the past 35 years.

The band members are: Vinnie Cutro— trumpet, Mark Friedman–alto sax and flute, Frank Elmo–tenor sax and flute,Dan Nigro— baritone sax, Conrad Zulauf— trombone, Frank Valdes–percussion, Mike DiLorenzo–piano, John Hughes–bass, Alessio Marc Cupo–drums, and Willy Dalton–guitar.

“The Dalton Gang is really a labor of love,” says bandleader Willy Dalton. “The dedication and commitment of the musicians is what keeps the band alive. When I write for the band, I try to draw on the mix of sounds that we play as working musicians in the New York area–jazz, funk, latin, big band, etc. Putting this all in one package and making the music challenging to play is what I’m aiming for.”

Through the years, “One More Once” has performed at concerts, fundraisers, school functions, corporate parties and town events throughout the North Jersey area, including a monthly event at Trumpets Jazz Club which features opening acts from local schools and world renowned guest artists such as: Gabriel Alegria, Eric Alexander, Carl Allen, Robby Ameen, Paul Bollenback, Ralph Bowen, Don Braden, Cecil Bridgwater, Ronnie Cuber, Vinnie Cutro, Kenny Davis, Steve Davis, Dave Demsey, Denis Diblasio, Jon Faddis, Bob Ferrel, Joel Frahm, Matt Gallagher, Wycliffe Gordon, Mark Gross, Slide Hampton, Antonio Hart, Freddie Hendrix, Conrad Herwig, Vincent Herring, Jim Hynes, Ingrid Jensen, Jeff Kunkel, Mike Lee, Pete McGuinness, Rufus Reid, John Riley, Claudio Roditi, Gary Smulyan, Marc Stasio, Dave Stryker, Steve Turre,  Walt Weiskopf and Bruce Williams.
