MARLOW ROSADO WINS HIS FIRST GRAMMY NOMINATION
Miami's Marlow Rosado second CD, “Retro,” has been nominated for a 2013 Grammy award as Best Tropical Album.
While Marlow Rosado is a multiple Grammy nominee for his collaboration on other projects, this is his first under his own name. 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 production, MAS. 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.
Marlow Rosado y La Riqueña has been a smash hit at every concert venue they've played in south Florida, including El Séntinel's Tenth Anniversary celebration at Arts Park in Hollywood, “Historia de la Salsa” at the Kravis Center in West Palm Beach, the North Shore Bandshell in Miami Beach, and more. Marlow latest triumph is his appointment as music director at WGEN-TV's “El Show con Tony Benítez” (http://www.wgentv.com) .
