Not Quite Yet 2022

Not Quite Yet CD Cover

Release Date: October 28, 2022

Paul's long awaited new album, featuring arrangements by Mike Allemana!

Different versions of this album have been in the works for quite a few years, with starts and stops for a plethora of reasons, not the least of which being the global pandemic. As it was always intended to be, this album is an honest and personal collection of songs which address themes and reflect moods that are characteristic of me at this stage. Though these eternal themes of life, love, and the search for deeper meaning are common, these interpretations were colored and shaped by the circumstances in which we most recently found ourselves. Recalling the past - wondering what’s next - stuck in limbo. This is not quite yet.” Paul Marinaro, September 2022
Marinaro has made the album he needed to hear at a crucial point in our shared history - an entirely personal album - that many others will need to hear, too." Neil Tesser (Grammy Award winning journalist, radio host, music critic, author)
