"a musical journey of the heart, sweet like a buoyant souffle".
'TWAS A BEAUTIFUL DEBUT APPEARANCE AT FEINSTEIN'S at VITELLOS AS THE 'LA VIE EN ROSE' OF LORRAINA MARRO'S PROJECT: 'MUSIC THE INTERNATIONAL LANGUAGE OF
LOVE' with Lorraina and Mitchell Long:
"They beguiled us, made us laugh and dream as they took us on a fanciful confection of a musical international journey of the heart,a buoyant souffle, singing in French, Portuguese and Spanish.. sweet and buoyant..at turns sad or joyful. From “La Vie en Rose” to Jobim’s “Agua De Beber” to the rhythms of “Black Orpheus”.
- Joel Rothberg

"Maryanne Reall is not your 'Gardenia Variety of All That Jazz' she takes charge of her material with zest and originality"
- John Kalish, WeHO Patch
"One of the smoothest, most effortless blues singers I have ever known. Her subtlety and caressing of a lyric is something to behold"
