Pre-Release Reviews

"Let's Make Our Love Last (feat. Anna Moore)"

Radio Graviola - Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

Hi Mike, how are you?! This is Val Becker, founder and director of the Radio. What an interesting song. I love the mix of classic R&B with very well scored electronic elements. The vocals are excellent, as is the piano playing. The arrangements put each instrument and element in the right mood. Strings, keyboards, beats and electronic details, all very well orchestrated. The musical production is very good. The piano solos behind the instruments are soft and present at the same time. Overall, a beautiful production. Let's spread the word on our networks and insert it in a special Radio Graviola program. Congratulations on the release. Good luck and success! We are in touch.

New Progressive R&B and Adult Contemporary Smooth Jazz Releases will be arriving on June 3rd, 2022 with an incredible lineup of amazing vocal talent.

This past year has given me the opportunity to work with an extremely gifted group of vocalists who will all be appearing on a new upcoming release available on all streaming platforms June 3rd. It ranges from contemporary urban, progressive R&B to light contemporary jazz. I was honored to work with such outstanding artists as Sonna Rele, Anna Moore, Joel Kibble of Take 6, CaiNo, Denise Stewart,  with Frank Elmo on tenor sax.

This was a lot of fun working with everyone from start to finish with special thanks to both Frank and Anna for their support and inspiration.

The featured vocalists include:


Anna Moore, amazing and creative R&B singer-songwriter and new writing partner with a large music repertoire of her own. You have also heard her on National TV Spots over the past few years. She is an inspiration and we are collaborating on much more new music to come.

Sonna Rele, renown pop singer/model and TikTok sensation from London with over 3 Million social media followers, (2.2 Million on TikTok alone) and has one of the most incredible voices you will hear in pop music today. You have heard her on collaborations with Ne-Yo, Wyclef Jean and others. She can also be heard singing the lead on the soundtrack theme song from Disney’s 

Motion Picture Cinderella.

Joel Kibble, one of the 6 principal members and 30 year vet of the 10-time Grammy award-winning vocal group Take 6.  He has worked with everyone from Quincy Jones, to Stevie Wonder, Marcus Miller and many more. He has had the honor of performing for four sitting U.S. Presidents.  Honored to have him contribute, an amazing talent and great person to work with who provided an amazing vocal performance and interpretation of a classic standard. 

Other vocalists include session vet's Denise Stewart (Norman Connors) and CaiNo  (Showtime, Viceland) on vocals. Last but not least is NJ’s own and good friend Frank Elmo on tenor sax.  You will hear some of his amazing playing featured throughout the recordings.

It's been an honor working with each and everyone of these artists over this past year.

Musician Info

Let the Music Tell the Story

Trained classically on the piano at an early age, Mike DiLorenzo has moved on and explored everything from R&B and Latin to Jazz and Gospel and everything in between, backing up and recording with a wide range of artists in the New York area. "While studying classical music, I seemed to be more interested in Santana, Earth, Wind and Fire and Stevie Wonder at the time. Finally it was Herbie Hancock's Headhunters album which got me hooked, and it was that inspiration which has carried me through with my music ever since."
 
In addition to his love for jazz, Mike has performed with a wide range of artists including Whitney Houston, Cissy Houston and the grammy-award winning NJ Mass Choir, Gerald Alston, Regina Belle to Bo Diddley and Chuck Berry, to name a few. He has performed with both the North Carolina and Delaware Symphonies and has appeared at NYC legendary landmarks including Carnegie Hall, Radio City Music Hall, Madison Square Garden, the Blue Note and the Apollo Theater. 

Mike's fist cd "Urbanized" debuted in 2006 was very well received in the smooth jazz market and featured on CD101.9 NY and later on syndication across the country. Many selections were  heard on the 2-time Emmy Awarded Daytime Reality Show "Starting Over".  2011 featured Mike's 2nd cd "Bring It Back" which aired internationally and climbed up JazzWeek's Smooth Album Chart at #12 and Smooth Singles Chart at #9 with his version of "Can't Hide Love".​
