Performing Arts Series Concert: Eddie Palmieri Latin Jazz Band
Known as one of the finest pianists of the past 60 years, eight-time GRAMMY Award winner Eddie Palmieri is a bandleader, arranger and composer of salsa and Latin jazz. His playing 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.
Palmieri's parents emigrated from Ponce, Puerto Rico to New York City in 1926. Born in Spanish Harlem and raised in the Bronx, Palmieri learned to play the piano at an early age, and at 13 he joined his uncle's orchestra, playing timbales.
