Ricardo Marrero - composer, arranger, and
Musician. A graduate of New York''s prestigious Music and Art High School.
Richie plays all percussion instruments,
as well as piano, and vibes. When he breaks out
the vibraphone, his sound is reminicent of the late
Cal Tjader, and the late and great - Tito Puente.

Ricardo has been at the forefront of the "Salsa"
and "Latin-Jazz" musical scene since the mid 70''s.
He has arranged for The Fania All Stars, Pete "El
Conde" Rodriguez, The 5 Stairsteps, and most
recently - Ruben Blades.

Ricardo has recorded two albums under the
prestigious "Salsa" label - VAYA Records (a division
of the famed FANIA label. The critically acclaimed "TIME" album, and the salsafied "JESSICA", which he recorded with former Eddie Palmieri vocalist,
Ismael Quintana.

Ricardo was also one of the founding members
of "Seis del Solar" (The Ruben Blades Band).

Included on this CD ("VARIATIONS") is Ricardo
Marrero & The Group''s crossover classic: "BABYLONIA."
Legendary NY radio DJ Frankie Crocker gave "BABYLONIA" a shot on WBLS radio back in the 70''s.. "Babylonia" received regular rotation
airplay at top NYC radio station WBLS.

Also included on the "VARIATIONS" CD are
legendary vocalist Angela Bofill (on "MY FRIEND"),
and renown flautist Dave Valentin on "A TASTE OF
LATIN." David can also be heard with his frolicking
flute on the Latino funk song: "ALGO." "ALGO" was
a real crowd favorite whenever Ricardo Marrero & The Group performed the song at various colleges, and other gigs throughout the city.

Smooth, velvety voiced Jimmy Sabater (formerly
of The Joe Cuba Sextet) sings, and raps a bit on
the progressive salsa track - "POR QUE YO TE AMO."
(also included on the "VARIATIONS" CD.)

"VARIATIONS" is a culmination of Ricardo Marrero''s 30-plus years in the music business.
It''s part Latin Jazz, part Latin-Funk, and a whole
lot of the musical genius of NYC born - Ricardo Marrero!
