Yoshi's Jazz Club presents Marlow Rosado y la Riqueña
Hot salsa in San Francisco August 15
From salsa to rock, from merengue to hip-hop, from bachata to reggaeton, producer / composer / pianist Marlow Rosado has had his musical hand in all of it. A native of Puerto Rico, he is a salsero at heart, but has successfully written, played and produced hits in a variety of musical styles for some of the most renowned artists in Latin music. He has played and worked with a diverse repertoire of artists including Celia Cruz, the unforgettable Tejana signer Selena, Larry Harlow, Tommy Olivencia, Marc Anthony, Ricardo Montaner, Olga Tañón and Desmond Child, among others. Recently, he arranged and directed the horns sessions for Ricky Martin's new production. He is continually sought out by Latin Artists for his musical arrangement skills, his aggressive montunos on the piano, as well as his ability to direct orchestras for artists such as the late Salsa legend Celia Cruz, Tito Puente, Jr., Tito Nieves, and many others. It is not uncommon to see Marlow’s name on CD liner notes, whether it is as a pianist, producer, songwriter or musical director.
Now, with the birth of Marlow Rosado y La Riqueña, the man behind the music takes to the stage himself, with the project closest to his heart and years in the making, his new CD, “Retro”, taking some of the strongest songs from the 1970's, maintaining the essentials of the originals, but metamorphosing them in Marlow's 21st-century conception until they become entirely his own.
Admission is $22. Yoshi’s is located at 1330 Fillmore St., San Francisco CA 94115. For more information contact Yoshi’s at (415) 655-5600 or visit yoshis.com. For information on Marlow Rosado y la Riqueña, contact KCC Productions at 305-332-2623.
