Rosado is a native of Puerto Rico where he fell in love with Latin tropical dance music. He grew up listening to his salsa heroes on the radio and taught himself to play piano by listening to his favorite artists. Rosado has successfully written, played and produced hits in a variety of musical styles. Rosado earned a Master’s degree in Jazz Education, and is continually sought out by Latin Artists for his arrangement skills. He has performed and worked with a diverse repertoire of artists including Celia Cruz, Tejana singer Selena, Larry Harlow, Tomy Olivencia, Marc Anthony, and Ricky Martin, among others.
Some of Rosado’s most notable work includes the five driving rock tracks he co-wrote on Alejandra Guzman’s album “Lipstick”, nominated for Best Rock Album of the Year by the American and Latin Grammys. It is not uncommon to see Rosado’s name on album notes whether as a pianist, producer, songwriter, or musical director. Rosado’s music has evolved from the sounds of salsa to Latin jazz, and 2021 brought the release of two new albums. He is a driving force in the tropical music industry.
The Marlow Rosado concert is one of several in Gervasi Vineyard’s summer concert series.

Bob James, a two-time Grammy Award winner will round out the series with his smooth, classic and fusion jazz.
