I have just heard a few tracks of a recording by Valentina Marino and must say it makes for fascinating listening. Furthermore, one of the tracks was one of my songs, "I want to prove I love you", which she arranged and sang. I was impressed by the modernity of the arrangement - a totally imaginative restructuring of the song. Her musical backing was superb and totally professional - and then she touched my heart by singing my ballad, "Love came on stealthy fingers". Record companies and talent scouts should keep their eyes on this young lady, she is bound to go far." (Bob Dorough, Songwriter/Producer/Recording Artist)

Valentina Marino, Jazz Sängerin mit italienischen Wurzeln, präsentiert mit Freunden Jazz Standards, Bossa Novas aber auch Titel von ihrem Album „PhiLovesophy“. Für die Künstlerin sind Emotionen eine fundamentale Komponente im Songwriting Prozess. Jazz Musik stellt für sie die enge Beziehung zwischen Leben und Musik dar, der pulsierende Rhythmus fungiert als Spiegel. Sie erklärt u.a. was sich hinter dem Wortspiel „PhiLovesophy“ verbirgt und was Improvisation für sie bedeutet. (Pressetext)
