About The Artist
Born in 1936 New York when his parents arrived from Puerto Rico, Eddie Palmieri is one of the most influential artists behind the salsa jazz fusion that came to prominence in the 60's. While he dominated the 60's with his immensely danceable and popular sound, he continued on with his amazing work through the 70's, 80's, and 90's with releases such as "Palmas", "El Sonido Nuevo: The New Soul Sound", and many, many more. He announced his retirement from the world of music in 2000 but couldn't stay away for long, as he came back almost immediately and won two Grammy's for the album "Masterpiece" that he had created with Tito Puente. From there the good times kept rolling as Eddie continued releasing incredible music such as "La Perfecta II", "Simpatico", and most recently "Eddie Palmieri is Doing it In The Park" in 2013. There seems to be no stopping the musical genius of Eddie Palmieri, and the music world is better for it.
With so many years of experience in music before he even took off to success with his band "La Perfecta", Eddie Palmieri already had the knowledge and experience necessary to take this group far. And so it was with the group's self-titled debut album that they made their mark on the music scene, due in part to the addition to the already popular sound that they touted. It was through additions of trombones and the flute instead of trumpets, but showcased a myriad of songs that were incredible in both creative vision and style. It was through this group that Eddie altered an already popular sound to create an even bigger salsa and jazz craze than there already was.
Eddie Palmieri Trivia
While Eddie Palmieri's music is distinctly Latin in nature, he has shown such a willingness to experiment with non-Latin music that he has broken through many barriers that would have confined him to a single genre. However, since he has pushed through by tweaking the basic salsa and Charanga styles by adding in jazz, classical, Caribbean, Cuban, and other such rhythms and sounds, Eddie helped further popularize and broaden the demographic that would take in this style of music. Through his music he was able to expand the boundaries that this style and genre of music was confined to, and would appear at festivals alongside artists such as Bob Marley, Patti LaBelle, Dick Gregory, and more.
For decades Eddie Palmieri has been doing the world a favor by lending his expertise and creative vision in creating some of the most danceable, stylish, influential, and innovative music and groups around. And through the decades he has only become more talented and skilled not only in his abilities as a musician, but also as a bandleader and creative mind. It won't matter if you've been listening to Eddie's music since the 60's or if you've recently become infatuated with the sound that he has pioneered, because in the end he always puts on a wonderful show that everyone who has a love for music can enjoy.
