Marano has a perfectly lovely voice and knows how to use it, as she shows time and again on If You Could See Us Now! It’s enormously helpful, of course, to have wonderful arrangements by the late Manny Albam performed by the world–class Netherlands Metropole Orchestra, a circumstance that Marano says consummates the dream of a lifetime. She worked hard to make the dream come true, singing with many Jazz luminaries in clubs and at festivals in the . and around the world and teaching voice at the Manhattan School of Music and William Paterson University

Manny was still proud of this album when he made a presentation at an International Association of Jazz Educators convention, in which he used three tracks as examples of jazz ensemble music using smaller forces. Albam followed that up with a collaboration with Ernie Wilkins for RCA called Drum Suite, recorded in March of 1956. Albam contributed three of the six tracks for an album that featured drummers Gus Johnson, Osie Johnson, Ted Sommer and Don Lamond. He wrote arrangements for Stan Getz, Jackie Paris and Coleman Hawkins during this period. He wrote music for the WDR big band of Germany and for the Metropole Orchestra of Holland. Manny passed away on October 2, 2001 at his home at Croton-On-Hudson. He is survived by two daughters and a son.
