Overview: Review from "Indie Music": Carmelo Rosado, Jr. put his recording career on hiatus for a few decades while pursuing the entrepreneurial life, but it's obvious that his passionate delivery of romantic ballads, mixing ranchera, samba and Carribean touches, didn't get the least bit rusty in the interim.
This collection of compositions by his father showcases his baritone-tenor-range voice and full-throated guitar to remarkable effect.
It's so refreshing to hear a man sing like a man, celebrating the richness and capacity for adult tenderness that has pretty much gone by the wayside in all genres of music, even Latin.
Standout cuts here include "Brisas Del Palmar," with its seven-flat-nine vocal harmonies, stereo dual guitars, saxophone flourishes and overall tropical languor, as well as "Que Sabes Tu," an introspective ballad notable for being piano-based in this otherwise guitar-intensive collection, and "Guitarra Gitana Extended," with its bold castanets and horns.
