Pacific Mambo brings big sound to Harris Center

Pacific Mambo Orchestra is performing the music of Machito, Tito Puente, Celia Cruz and others — while including those rich traditions within its own contemporary arrangements — at Harris Center, 10 College Parkway in Folsom, on Tuesday, Nov 19 at 7 p.m.

Pacific Mambo Orchestra is led by Marlow Rosado, who won a 2013 Grammy for his album “Retro.” Joining on percussion is Tito Puente Jr. who is determined to nurture the musical legacy left by his father.

Tickets are $19 to $29 with premium tickets $39. Tickets are available online at harriscenter.net or from the Harris Center ticket office at 916-608-6888 from 10 a.m.-6 p.m. Monday through Saturday, and two hours before show time. Parking is included in the price of the ticket. The performance is sponsored by Capital Public Radio.

Puente Jr. carries his father with him — imprinted on his physical being and locked in his soul. It’s in his looks, his joy and his music — and, in refusing to let his father become a distant memory, the young Tito nurtures his father’s artistic legacy.

Puente Jr’s 2004 album “In My Father’s Shoes” featured the classic Puente titles and was spun into a BET Jazz television special of the same name. He was seen in a tribute to his father’s music on NBC’s two hour special — “The Apollo at 70: A Hot Night in Harlem.”

He has also appeared on the ABC soap opera hit “One Life to Live” in performance with his big band and most recently was featured on ABC hit, “Dancing With The Stars.”

His latest CD release, “Got Mambo?” is a mixture of the old and the new as he takes a musical departure into some powerful new music he can truly call his own.

Guest artists Bobby Cruz and Hansel and Raul help make this a coming of age project for Puente Jr. and the album is receiving heavy praise from Tropical and Latin jazz critics alike.

Trumpeter Steffen Kuehn, whose 2008 release “Trumpop” was nominated for a Grammy for Best Contemporary Jazz Album, and pianist Christian Tumalan, whose résumé includes Tony Vega, Johnny Rivera, Rubén Blades, Ray Obiedo and Kenny Washington among many others, are both experienced bandleaders in their own right.

They founded this Latin salsa big band to build upon the great Latin big band sounds of the 1940s through the 1960s.

With more than 20 years of experience in the music industry, pianist, composer, producer and band leader Rosado has developed a powerful portfolio working with some of the top artists in the Latin music industry.

Eleven prior Grammy nominations finally led to his first Grammy statue for his most recent release “Retro,” an all-star homage to the classic salsa sounds of the 70s. It won the 2013 American Grammy for “Best Tropical Album of The Year.” Rosado’s influence can be felt on records by Ricky Martin, Elvis Crespo, Alejandra Guzman and El Gran Combo de Puerto Rico. He is currently based out of Miami, Fla.

Featured vocalist Willy Torres is a three-time Grammy Award winner and eight-times nominated, he has received the Alex Ambassador and multiple Billboard awards. Joining Torres is Grammy-nominated Latin jazz vocalist, Alexa Weber Morales.

PMO’s members have performed and/or recorded with the industries’ biggest names like Dizzy Gillespie, Herbie Hancock, Carlos Santana, Ray DeLa Paz, Jose Lugo Guasabara Orchestra, Los Adolescentes, Isaac Delgado, Gilberto Santarosa, Tito Rojas, La India, Victor Manuelle and many others.
