IN THE NEWS

DAN McCLENGHAN, ALL ABOUT JAZZ

“Like the very best in this game – Sinatra or Tony Bennett – Robinson makes it all sound so effortless on this truly superb vocal jazz outing.”



NINA GOODRICH, JAZZ REVIEW

“Breathing new air into classic old standards, vocalist Mark Robinson takes on the world of the Great American Songbook, mirroring the depth of Perry Como, the suave of Tony Bennett and the ritz of Frank Sinatra with his debut album, Some Small Dive. Robinson's mild mannered, yet persuasive delivery makes the listener feel like he's sitting at a table being personally addressed with each note.” 



ADAM GREENBERG, ALL MUSIC GUIDE

“Current male crooners, much like female jazz singers, generally go too far to one extreme or the other — either just trying to copy Sinatra without anything new (and thus failing in the shadow of the true greats) or disrespecting the great songbook classics with too much divergence. Robinson walks the line pretty well here -- the songs are given room to breathe, but the intended meaning is generally left intact. Absolutely worth a listen for fans of the male jazz singer.” 



ANDREW GILBERT, SAN JOSE MERCURY NEWS

“With the release last year of his impressive debut album, 'Some Small Dive,' Robinson is definitely one of the most exciting additions to the Bay Area vocal scene in recent years.”



JOHN GILBERT, eJAZZNEWS

“The rich tone of Robinson is a delight as he takes us on an excursion into the land of legitimate jazz.”

 

LEE HARTGRAVE, BEYONDCHRON 

“Mark Robinson did a wonderful new vocal arrangement of 'My Foolish Heart.' Robinson reaches back in time to the wonderful band singers of the 40s. Close your eyes and you see Benny Goodman, Tommy Dorsey, and Woody Herman with Robinson at the front of the band doing the vocals.”
