CELEBRATING EDDIE PALMIERI’S 80TH BIRTHDAY
Ten-time Grammy Award winner, Eddie Palmieri, is known as one of the finest pianists of the past 60 years. He’s a bandleader, arranger and composer of salsa and Latin jazz and skillfully fuses the rhythm of his Puerto Rican heritage with the complexity of his jazz influences: Thelonious Monk, Herbie Hancock, McCoy Tyner as well as his older brother, Charlie Palmieri. In recognition of his contribution to American music, the Smithsonian’s National Museum of American History, recorded two of Palmieri’s performances for its archives. Take advantage of this rare opportunity to see a true living legend with his Latin Jazz Septet.
Eddie Palmieri’s influence on the world of modern music is often celebrated, but just as often underestimated. As he celebrates his 80th year with us, his energy and commitment seem to be increasing, as if to fully emphasize the power of not just the music but also the cross-cultural importance of the process. With no sign of slowing, Mr. Palmieri is the elder of a global culture of musicians, actively teaching young students and leading the way for the next generation.
“Irresistible syncopated rhythms that made it hard for the audience to keep still in their seats.” – Latin Jazz Network
