"When it comes to soul,
Dennis Marcellino redefines the term. His remarkable tone and feel are full of passion and soulful expression ... because he is a soul completely given to Jesus."

X-Factor is a singer/songwriter CD of all originals with Christian lyrics and a Christian heart and mind perspective. It includes power ballads, Christian blues, Christian funk, and CCM style songs. In science, when there is a problem and a solution can't be found, there is always one factor that is still not realized that could solve the problem. This factor is known as the 'X-factor'. The X-Factor for human and societal problems is Jesus, who was symbolized by an X in the first century.

Onward and Upward CD:

This uplifting instrumental Jazz CD is about energy and joy. It features Dennis on Sax, Flute and Clarinet, and includes the classic standard "When A Man Loves A Woman" (during which Dennis plays the highest note ever recorded on the sax), a soulful ballad version of "Standin' On The Corner", and 5 original songs ... a sax song ("Happiness") in an upbeat, energetic style; a fast-moving flute song that sounds like a movie sound track ("Onward & Upward); a nostalgic clarinet song ("1930's Kind Of Laid Back"); a romantic song that moves from ballad to bossa to samba and back to bossa again ("At Last"); another romantic song that moves from ballad to joy ("Our New Love").

"I was severely addicted to alcohol and cocaine. I'd tried everything I could find, including AA and Narc-Anon. But it wasn't until I followed the Addiction Free Forever program that I finally experienced an inner strength that allowed me to conquer my addiction problem." - Quote from a pilot for a major airline who flunked his drug test
"This is a very important book that is greatly needed at this time. I agree that the Bible should be the ultimate resource for life and living and that the world could greatly benefit from being logically and scientifically shown that this is true.
