Larry Harlow

One of the frequently hidden gems behind the rise of Fania as Latin music's label extraordinaire in the late '60s and early '70s, Larry Harlow served as producer for countless Fania LPs, musical director of the Fania All-Stars, and of course, captain of his own Orchestra Harlow, which sailed along with the expertise of many great musicians and at least one of the greatest soneros of all time, Ismael Miranda. Additionally, during a very turbulent decade for Latin music, Harlow had a foot in both contemporary and traditionalist camps: he recorded an impressive Latin opera that was performed at Carnegie Hall but he worshipped the great tres player Arsenio Rodriguez and recorded an album-length tribute after his death.

Harlow, born Ira Kahn in Brooklyn in 1939, was greatly influenced by his father Buddy Kahn Harlow, a bassist and bandleader. He began piano studies at the age of five, and planned to become a jazz pianist until he first heard the mambo while attending Music and Art High School during the early '50s. During the 1964 World's Fair (held in Flushing, Queens), Harlow played piano for Johnny Pacheco's conjunto before creating the Larry Harlow orchestra. Heavily influenced by the Arsenio Rodriguez sound, Harlow modernized it and was hailed a disciple of "El Ciegito Maravilloso" ("The Marvelous Blind One") and was himself dubbed "El Judio Maravilloso" ("The Marvelous Jew"). After Arsenio's death on December 31, 1970, Harlow emotionally moved the Latin music world with the Fania album Tribute to Arsenio Rodriguez in 1971. Two years later, Harlow made headlines again with his Fania album Hommy, A Latin Opera, which was staged at Carnegie Hall. ~ Max Salazar & John Bush, Rovi

I also had the great pleasure to see Larry Harlow to perform live in Austin, Texas. Vocalist Junior Gonzalez de Coamo PR, tremendo. Guagua Rivera and Yomo Toro. The sound and quality of the music was awesome. Open park where the acoustic always go against the sound. Fantastic night brother. Se me perdio la Cartera ya no tengo mas dinero, la tringuena Encarnacion tambien alli papa.
pq si somos latino tenemos q hacer los comentarios en ingles,boric u a no dejes tu lengua castellana,q u e pasa boricua,
TODOS LOS COMENTARIOS ESTAN ESCRITOS EN "ENGLISH". EL 99% DE LOS QUE AQUI ESCRIBEN TIENEN NOMBRES HISPANOS. SI NO HABLAN ESPAÑOL..COM O ENTIENDEN LAS LETRAS DE NUESTRA SALSA ...SI EL 99% DE NUESTRA MUSICA ES EN ESPAÑOL . LES DA VERGUENZA SUS RAICES ?? EL HIP-HOP ES UNA BUENA ALTERNATIVA ..NO LES PARECE...???
I just had the plesure of seeing this great musician at Prospect Park on 6/18/2011, what a great performance after all these yrs.
I grew up listening to him,some of my childhood friends played with him,namely Angel"Cachet e " M a l d o n a d o around 1975 thru 1977.

El Judio Maravilloso. . . Check him out live if you get a chance. He's still doing an AWESOME 20 minute version of "La Cartera" besides the rest of his band's great repertoire.
