Marlow Rosado Brings the Grammy to Miami
"Retro" wins in Tropical Latin category
The concept behind "RETRO" is one of 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. Besides Tito Puente, Jr., other invited artists on the album, some of whom reprise parts of their originals, are Ismael Miranda, Bobby Cruz, Papo Lucca, Kevin Ceballo, Marlon Fernandez, Luigi Texidor, Quique Dominich, Salvador Cuevas, and Tony Vega.
A native of Puerto Rico, Marlow 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.

Recently, he arranged and directed the horns sessions for Ricky Martin's
This exquisite production is a must-have for every salsa aficionado. The album is available for download and CD at Amazon.com and iTunes.com. For information about Marlow Rosado, contact KCC Productions at 305-332-2623.
