While influenced by note jazz greats, Marin has never forgotten his roots, and it is this flavorful combination, which has made him one of the island’s top Latin jazz pianists and sought-after session musicians. Overall, he’s truly admired by his peers and fans for his adventurous artistic expression, as well as his passion for perfection.” --Ian Malinow, The San Juan Star

“In Puerto Rico, Luis Marin is one of the leading popular music and jazz pianists. Since early childhood, he has been performing in public, which eventually led to his involvement with some of the most significant artists in salsa and jazz.” --Javier Antonio Quiñones, All About Jazz

“Marin's one of the best Afro-Cuban pianists I've ever heard and one of the most unique.” --Harvey Pekar, Jazziz Magazine
