Hi, I recently started following you on twitter. Tunes sound great. I'm always interested to know how the jazz scene works in New York? I was there for the first time last summer and loved it. I was attending a Medeski Martin and wood camp in the Catskills and only had a few days in the city. I saw a lot of the jazz clubs etc. I wonder how one would go about booking gigs or even just get more immersed in the scene. I currently live in St. John's NL. There is a big music scene here ....not so much in the jazz realm. Anyway, I would love to come back and learn more, hang out , get into the scene more than just the tourist bit. Thanks for your time
My wife, Jayme, and I caught your performance Wednesday at the Kitano. I particularly liked the duet you did with the bass player. Very hip! Not that you need suggestions, but: You could pick a bunch of standards, let him do a cool intro where you can't really tell what the tune is, then you come in and the listener gets a nice surprise. Not that I'm an expert, but two songs that came to mind as you were performing were "It's All Right With Me'' and "Night and Day.'' Make a record. Call it "Bass Hits With Marianne Solivan.''
Anyway, keep up the good work and the best of luck to you and your band.
Hello Marianne, I have a nationally syndicated eclectic jazz radio show that is heard on public stations acorss the coutnry. We record our shows in the barn at DreamFarm an hour norht of Boston. If you are in the Boston area, perhaps your'd like to be a guest on the show. Here is our webiste, Check out the archives to hear what we are doing, and let me know what you think.

bucknell concert: GREAT! liked the adventurous song picks. very gracious toward audience and fellow performers. and speaking of them i am sure you know, you couldn\'t find any better, anywhere. look forward to hearing you again.
Great hearing you and meeting you at Empress Lounge last night! Hopefully will make it to NYC soon to see some shows there, thanks again and see you next time!
Hi. We met at Cafe DaDa the other night. Now I'm one of your new fans! (I was with the group of Renee Manning's students from the Brooklyn Conservatory, so if you put me on the list I can help spread the word.)
Loved meeting you after Baby Jane's set a Metroolitan Room. Can't wait to catch you in NY sometime soon!

We enjoyed your set today at North Square. We said 'hello" when we first arrived. It was much quieter than Eats Restaurant, but still there were a lot of talkers. However, we could hear you sing this time. Stay in touch.
Ran accross your "Prisoner of Love" when looking for the old Perry Como and Sinatra versions and some of the female vrsions from the 30s thru e 50s. Yours was THE best. I especially loved the addition of the intro hat no one used back then (pobably because it made the song too long to get played on the air) but it, and you make the song. I hope ou are performing somewhere in the Midwest soon as NYC is a ways to go from notrhern Michigan
ANy NYC appearances between 12/23 and 12/31?
My husband and I heard you at Hillstone tonight. I bought the CD from you at the bar. We will continue to follow your career. We know you are "going places"!
My husband is a big fan of your music. For his 65th birthday, I would like to get tickets to the Cape May Jazz Festival to see you. I am not sure what tickets to purchase. What does it meah when you say Martini Beach as a venue? Will you be appearing at the Convention Center or on a beach. He is a very heavy diabetic. We are good friends with Joanna Pascale from Philadelphia. You might have heard her CDs. I would like to plan a great weekend for us. Please suggest what package to purchase. Thanks for your help.

You may not recall but you met my bosses and I (Phoenix) at any rate my Boss is having a birthday celebration and would LOVE to book you for the evening, please respond via email@example.com to discuss further.
Thanks so much!
we met at Birdland on Sunday... Thank you so much for the CD download - I really enjoy your voice tremendously! You absolutely made my night with your songs. I will contact the jazz club I mentioned here in Birmingham, Ona's music room. It would be fantastic if you could perform here one day. Thank you again and many hugs.
La diva de la noche, la conquistadora despue de la media noche.Que conceptos pueden determinar a la noche, cuando el resumen de las paione se vuelven musicales y sutiles ,y que es el resumen de la noche es la voz.
I tried to send the link to Hipnotic, but the label's mail box is full. Perhaps you would be so kind as to forward it.
I just chanced across your new album on itunes, at it happens, on the day of release. I have not heard your music before but listening to the track previews was more than enough to persuade me to buy this album. New Jazz albums of this standard are few and far between, so I am thrilled to find yours - best of luck with your new release, I hope it is a big success for you.
Best wishes from Andrew

Greetings from Alaska. Ray Funk, producer/host of Funk Roots at KUAC-FM in Fairbanks just below the arctic circle here.Just heard the Soundcheck podcast with you. Wonderful!I am writing because I am interested in getting promotional copy of your cd for my radio show called Funk Roots on Kuac-FM. The show is an eclectic mix of world music, roots music, and jazz. It is on every Sunday night from 7 pm to 9pm in Alaska. I have been on the air at KUAC as a volunteer dj and producer for 32 years and Funk Roots has been on the air for over twenty years. KUAC-FM is the local NPR affiliate and is rebroadcast on other stations throughout Alaska. It is also broadcast on the internet. See www.kuac.org. My playlists are now posted to a consolidated npr site I continue to have fun doing my show as a volunteer when when according to recent reports this music is getting less and less coverage on public radio. Classical, jazz, and world music on public radio declined by up to 30% over the last decade and roots music cannot be far behind. Meanwhile, I have recently become a member of the artist selection committee for the Fairbanks Concert Association.I look forward to hearing from you.Ray FunkFunk Roots, KUAC-FMP. O.

Saw you tonight at Zinc Bar, It's been a lovely moment.
Let me know when you come in show in Montreal or even better in Quebec City. There's also a small jazz fest there. Listening to your CD right now. Great stuff. Keep going, take care of yourself and your beautiful voice.
Can you add me to your email list? I'd love to come see you. You sound great.!!
PS We met briefly at 55 Bar. I think it was Kate McGarry's gig.
Thanks in advance, all the best from Amsterdam, Ilse
Thanks for keeping me informed on your great talent.
All the best.
Please add me to your mailing list for future events
So sorry I missed your wonderful voice this night, but please keep me updated for any events and CD releases.
Enjoying your show tonight I am glad you mentioned in the Boston area that the clubs always have TV's with sports on them Glad Smalls does not. Its like Hell up here in the Boston area becuase all they have in clubs is sports and sports teams this is why NYC has a much better club scene for Jazz all Boston has is their Harvard snobs and the bad accent. thanks for the great show tonight at smalls watching via internet.
Lovely version of I Wish I Knew.
Great voice, great songs, by the way who played piano in Out of this World (in myspace)? Thanks.
Hello Mary ann,
It was good to see you last night.
I wish that I had heard you sing...I love your voice...but even more, I liked what you said
when you so passionately shared what you had to say about your approach
to singing....at that time while listening, I was thinking that I would like to get together with
you and go over some music. I'm trying to grow and be around as many serious
people going in the same direction while I'm here. So if possible, I'd like to get together
with you and run through some things because God knows that I need it...what do you think...?
It was nice meeting you in NYC a few weeks back and hanging out. Well you sure have a couple of swingin bassists on your CD! Congrats and best wishes. I enjoyed your music here on your site. Best,

Happy to keep my commitment to you, Marianne. Send me that CD hot off the press when it is ready. Have a great session(s).
Hi Marianne - I was at Smalls last night and LOVED your show. I have been hunting down some of your songs this morning - but the one I can't find anywhere is that one about being true to your soul with the lyric "I'm not a sham". I think you said it was Betty Carter but I might have that totally wrong. I am a writer starting to dabble with lyrics from Melbourne, Australia - am currently working on a collaboration on a set of new jazz songs - so right now I am totally in to new, slightly off beat jazz songs, I also loved the Dorothy Parker one - am totally inspired that she wrote lyrics - I had no idea.
All the best with your career - you were awesome!
(If you are wondering who I was - I was the one with the grey hat and bright red/orange scarf with my Mom : ) - we're on a girls roadtrip!)
I like your sound.
It was great seeing you Christmas eve. We hope to see you sooner than later.
I won't forget to send you the DVD of "Lydia Solivan Renaissance Woman"
We love you, God bless you.
Jazz in Mind Productions played for our holiday parties 2003 through 2006. Do you still perform for parties? If so would you be available on Saturday, January 22nd to perform at the MIT Faculty Club?

I got your email about your upcoming performances. Thank you. I just wanted to give you a better email address than the one you've been using. The best email address to reach me at is: firstname.lastname@example.org (not email@example.com).
I also noticed that you don't have a bassist lined up for your Iridium appearance. I'll be performing at the Carlyle (w/ Bob Albanese and Dave Meade backing up Paolo Szot) that night. We're done early and it would be very easy for me to walk over to Iridium with a whole bunch of the Carlyle audience and play with you. I've been listening to your music on your website and would really love to play with you one day. Of course, I'd want to get together to rehearse! If that can't work out, I'm going to try and swing by Iridium anyway to hear you. Still try and bring a few folks from the Carlyle!
