Richard Serotta is a musician, writer, visual artist, record producer and engineer. His work has received Latin and American Grammy recognition through eight nominations with four awards for recordings of Celia Cruz, Gloria Estefan, Ricky Martin and others. Classical training as a young musician helped Richard set a pace for a career exploring multiple disciplines and formats. At once teaching and learning, but never settling, projects representing a wide spectrum of artistic and cultural endeavors have turned into a body of work. Recordings with Jonathan Richman in 1998 resulted in music for the Farrelly Brothers' "There's Something About Mary". Another subsequent documentary and scoring/mixing experience resulted in a CD/DVD release as producer/engineer, filmed in Cuba and involving Bonnie Raitt, Gladys Knight, Mick Fleetwood, Jimmy Buffett, Peter Frampton, among many contributing artists. This project led to a stint re-mastering classic concert performances for cable broadcast. Richard has recorded, mixed, or presented a truly diverse parade of musical artists including Stanley Clarke, Kurt Elling, Cameo, Chick Corea, the Romantics and Clarence Clemons. Currently he is endeavoring to integrate his experiences derived from a perennial exposure to talent, with a heartfelt commitment to the role of musicians as a culturally historic creative force by developing a musical documentary series with his long time friend, master drummer, Gerry Brown. This singularly musical concept has garnered the support of heralded filmmaker, David Lynch.
