He recorded "Homenaje a Eddie Palmieri" with the Puerto Rican All Stars during the 1980s. He also recorded with various orchestras, amongst them:
Tommy Olivencia, Willie Rosario and El Gran Combo.
Santa Rosa developed a unique style of "soneo" in salsa that permitted him to be successful in both the "tropical" and "romantic" styles of the music.In 1986, Santa Rosa formed his own band and signed with Combo Records; a string of hits followed, such as:"Good Vibration", "De Amor y Salsa" "Punto de Vista" "Vivir Sin Ella" and "Perspectiva". Santa Rosa was also the first singer of tropical salsa to carry out a concert at the Carnegie Hall Theater, in New York, where he performed as the opening number, his unique version of the salsa tune, "Represento", composed by Lou Briel.
In 1990, Santa Rosa joined the all star "La Puertorique?a" project which included Andy Monta?ez; in the same year he was awarded the Billboard Lo Nuestro Award. In 1995, Santa Rosa traveled to Japan where he sang "De Cara al Viento" in Japanese. In 1996, he recorded "Caballero de la Salsa, Vol 2" and he also participated in the First Presidents Festival in the Dominican Republic. In 1997, he sang with Andy Monta?ez in New Yorks Lincoln Center and later that year, with Olga Ta?on at the Universal Studios Amphitheater in Hollywood, California.Santa Rosa's hits continued with the album "Expresion" which included the single "Fulana" and in 2001 with the album "Romantico".
