Eddie Palmieri - Ep mp3 album

Eddie Palmieri (born December 15, 1936) is a Grammy Award-winning pianist, bandleader, musician, and composer of Puerto Rican ancestry. He is the founder of the bands La Perfecta, La Perfecta II, and Harlem River Drive. Palmieri's parents moved to New York from Ponce, Puerto Rico, in 1926, and settled in the South Bronx, a largely Hispanic neighborhood. There, he and his elder brother, Charlie Palmieri, were born. He accompanied Charlie and participated in many talent contests when he was eight years old.

It's a big band session, with cooking Latin rhythms and Afro-Cuban melodics, as well as a few vanguard compositional touches. The record smokes thoroughly from beginning to end, revealing that Palmieri has lost none of his fire since the mid-'70s, and is a stunning showcase of his abilities as an arranger and composer. El Dia Que Me Quieras," which is a tango by Carlos Gardel, is adapted here by Palmieri for his large band.

Palmieri’s professional career as a pianist took off with various bands in the early 1950s including Eddie Forrester, Johnny Segui’s, and the popular Tito Rodriguez Orchestra. In 1961, Palmieri formed his own band, La Perfecta, which featured an unconventional front line of trombones rather than the trumpets customary in Latin orchestras. This created an innovative sound that mixed American jazz into Afro-Caribbean rhythms, surprising critics and fans alike. Palmieri disbanded La Perfecta in 1968 to pursue different musical endeavors, though he would return to the band’s music in the 2000s.

Born in Manhattan on December 15, 1936 but raised in the Bronx at 830 Kelly St. Palmieri's family came to NYC in the mid-1920s from Ponce, Puerto Rico. Personally i have always thought his brother Charlie to be the superior pianist both lyrically & melodiously. Eddie being a more percussive pianist, what separates the bros are in their approach & philosophical differences. Eddie has gone on record claiming that his life changed with Bob Bianca teaching him the Schillinger System of composition.

In press photos for Eddie Palmieri’s new album Sabiduría, the elegant octogenarian is seen holding a big cigar. No pun may be intended by the twinkly-eyed Palmieri, but even if a cigar is just a cigar, the album makes clear that he is still smoking musically as he leads a line up of multigenerational musicians. The wild cat, who both salsa and Latin jazz musicians claim as their own, hasn’t stopped letting loose on the world’s stages with his incredible band. His EP @ 80 trek continues through the end of the year. See the full schedule here.
