   Len Triola is known as the "Prince Of Promotion." He knows how to effectively promote a CD and the artist.

- John Bohannon, Currently Jazz host WRHU-FM, New York

Former Network Radio News Correspondent (ABC, NBC, CBS)

  

   Len Triola is the consummate music professional, and his passion for his work is unbounded. He is the man to seek out for your project. He has the respect of those at the top in "the business."

 - Bill Boggs, American Television Presenter and Journalist

   One only needs to have one conversation with Len Triola to be able to read his enthusiasm and love for the music and the artists he promotes to appropriate radio sources who have known him for what seems like forever. He has carefully cultivated a lifetime of contacts and continues to amaze his artists with great representation on the air.   Within a short time of Triola receiving my CDs they were systematically sent out to his contact list, and appointment s for radio interviews followed shortly thereafter! Here was my “Mood Indigo” from my CD, “Don’t Go to Strangers” being played between Duke Ellington and Johnny Hodges. If your objective is to get airtime, this man is the go-to-guy. He operates with old school ways in a high tech world, meaning that he conducts business with a handshakes and phone calls, and you’ll probably have a bit of luck getting to hear his impression of President Clinton. If that doesn’t make you want to sign, I don’t know what would.

- Mary Bogue, Jazz and Blues Recording Artist

   "Mr. S. and Jilly introduced me to Lenny many years ago and we have maintained a long lasting friendship. He's the last of a breed. His knowledge of the record business, The Great American Songbook and Jazz are unsurpassed. He has always respected the the artist and has helped many find their way in this difficult business. I cherish his loyalty and friendship.

- Miss Peggy Judy, aka Molly Brandenburg

   When I released an album of songs by Johnny Mercer in 2011, I was not well informed when it came to promotion of the album. I got a strong recommendation to engage Len to work with me on promoting the album, and I am very glad that I did. He has done a terrific job. He arranged numerous radio interviews for me as well as getting the album played on stations and networks all over the country. As a result of Len's efforts, I was able to get a gig at New York's Metropolitan Room, and I am deeply grateful to him for that. It has been a pleasure for me to work with Len and to get to know him personally as well. I have the utmost respect for him both as a friend and as a professional colleague. He combines an energetic positivity with a matter-of-fact attitude that gets great results for the people and music he is promoting. Thank you for all your help.

- Linda Amiel Burns, Two-time MAC Award Winner, The Singing Experience - Director,
 The New York Sheet Music Society - President, Writer, Reviewer, Journalist

   Lenny Triola, Simply put "a man of his word, a true gentlemen" There are a select few music professionals who possesses honesty, integrity, knowledge of the business and a genuine interest in their clients and careers. So, after years of wadding through a sea of managers, agents and self proclaimed promoters, or, as I like the call them- Leaches, Parasites and Predators. One man stands out above the rest, Len Triola! Len has done more for my career since meeting in 2011, then all the years I struggled prior. Len had not only taken on my current CD but revisited my first two projects and got me a ton of airplay and interviews. That's not all! Lenny continues to push and promote long after the initial promotion. Our relationship has evolved into a lasting friendship. We now speak and meet on a regular basis and continue to collaborate and exchange ideas on all things music and more. Thanks Lenny!!

- Jerry Costanzo, Vocalist/Bandleader

   I recommend Lenny Triola as often as I recommend Frank Sinatra, Tony Bennett and Peggy Lee which is very often. Lenny is a man of his word and he does get back to you - rare! He's worked on several projects with me and always gets results. He keeps you informed and that's terrific! He's the kind of guy I call whenever I'm doing a project. Usually, before it's finished and he gets the CDs first. He's the best!

 - Tom Culver, Performer, Singer and Song Writer

   My friend Len is an old school, stand-up guy. He's honest, respectful, hard working and a Pro. His word is his bond which is why his reputation is impeccable ...... even though he's Italian.

- Jim Czak, Nola Recording Studios, New York City

   Thanks to Len's dedication to promoting my CD, I received airplay and reviews from radio stations across the country. I was also interviewed on a number of radio programs, which also helped to promote and sell my CD. I would not have received the exposure I did without Len's expertise and professionalism. I'd hire him again without hesitation.

 - Frank Dain, Vocalist, Editor Cabaret Scenes,
2013 MAC Award Nominee - Male Vocalist

   “Len Triola is a name we should remember! He is a man of his word and knows this music inside out, and that’s why he can sell an artist that he believes in and get results. He will go the extra mile, not because it means money in his pocket but because his passion rules his heart, and to me that’s what makes him stand out among other record promoters. He treats you like your part of his family and he is now a part of mine."

- Jan Daley, Performer and Singer

   The day Len Triola entered my life, it was forever changed not just professionally, but also personally. His commitment to this business we call music is unmatched. I never dreamt he would travel to central Illinois just to “check out my venue.” Followed by “Oh – and while I’m there, why don’t you set up a masterclass with the music business kids. I can help them get started the right way.” Who else does things like that nowadays? His personal touch has mentored many, me included. His customer service to a presenter is unmatched. His eye for talent is without question. And the size of his incredible heart is indescribable.

 - Barb Dallinger, Associate Director,
Braden Auditorium, Illinois State University

His ear and eye for extraordinary talent is greatly appreciated.

When Lenny calls, it is always a worthwhile conversation--full of insight and good news about something or someone hot and happening!!!”

- Robert Charles Griggs, Singer, Composer and Song Writer

    I was guided to Len Triola because it was being said that “He was the man to get it done”. I’d been getting good airplay from some stations and when I asked who they trusted, they told me Len. When I wanted to expand my market, I called Len Triola. Len got me airplay from LA to New York! I have a very good CD and it has gotten great reviews…but Len got me in the door to be heard! I would be the first to sing his praises and I must tell you, I really, really like him! I will always work with Len.

- Trish Hatley  Vocalist – Palm Springs,  CA – Seattle  

    I was referred to Len Triola when releasing my 2nd CD, "I've Heard That Song, Big Band Songbook." Len's response to the album helped make it clear that he truly loves The Great American Songbook, and is motivated by his passion for the music. Because of his efforts, my 2nd CD was a true 'release,' not an 'escape!' Spurred by the response that Len helped facilitate, I successfully re-released my first CD, "Frankly." Multiple radio interviews, 'Artist of the Week,' and my first performance in a Las Vegas showroom are all things that would not have happened without Len's efforts, for which I'm truly grateful.

 - Bill A. Jones, Actor/Singer, best known as 'Rod' on Fox TV's "Glee"

    When you think of the entertainment business the word loyalty rarely comes to mind but when you hear the name Lenny Triola that's exactly the word that comes to mind along with sincere and professional. He works the old fashioned way with a handshake and a phone. He's built relationships through the years that help him do his job so well. It's a great feeling knowing he's on your team. Nobody promotes like Len Triola.

He has an innate charm and a devotion to anything he takes on, plus he has what every performer and songwriter wants in his corner...the gift of a great ear for music.

   I have been in show business for over sixty years and have been blessed to have had some amazing people in my life in both the show as well as business end of entertainment.

Indeed, you deserve a heartfelt standing ovation!!!

 - Gary Tole Music Productions, Inc.

 - Jim West, Justin Time Records,  Montreal, QC
"Canada's Largest World Renowned Independent Jazz Label"

   This is a special, special man - Len Triola. I was cocktail waitressing at the Blue Note in '03, to learn the ins and outs of the NYC jazz scene, and he was there one night, putting on an event with the great Hank Jones (who was the consummate gentleman as well). Len noticed my retro hairdo and called me "Jayne Mansfield" all night. We struck up a conversation and he asked me what I was up to in NYC. "I came here to be a singer," I said.

   He asked me how old I was. I told him. He replied, "Say that you're < 3 years younger > and Do It Now!" We went and had a drink across the street at the Fat Black Pussycat and he took me under his wing. We worked together for a spell, which was great. We then sorta drifted, doing our own things, until....12 years later, last year....the phone rings out of the blue. I'd recognize that voice anywhere. (I wish I could relay an accent via the typed word. Think: Long Island, salt of the earth, a man's man.)

   "Hey, JO! I heard you're putting out an album. What's going on?" That was Interstellar Songbook II, and his timing couldn't have been better - I had just parted ways from my management company, and was looking for some new help.

   Since then, Len has hooked me up w live radio performances, interviews, and gigs (like this one last weekend at the Intima Awards - the Oscars for the lingerie industry), which has given me some wonderful learning opportunities and experience....but more than that, I just so ENJOY Len - his humor (his Tony Bennett impression *kills*), his enduring support of my music, his old-school way of doing things (he will hop on the phone way before he sends an email or text), and his wonderful, ethical way of handling relationships and people. It's a dying art and Len personifies it. And, I can sit around for hours listening to him talk about the who's who of jazz - it's such an education, and I feel so lucky to be a part of it.

- Joanne Weaver, Performer and Singer

   People come and go in life, and it's wonderful to reconnect with the true good ones. Thank you Len! I look forward to more adventures in jazz with you. Len Triola has been an absolute pleasure to work with. When I have questions about tattling a situation I call Lenny. He tells it like it is. No beating around the bush. He is honest and upfront, characteristics that are hard to find in this crazy industry. He’s always a phone call away….

- Debbi Bush Whiting, My Ideal Music, Inc.
