John Santos hosts a conversation w/ Eddie Palmieri at SFJAZZ Center, Joe Henderson Lab Theres nothing in jazz quite like the sight of Eddie Palmieri hunched over the piano, hammering out percussive block chords and propelling his band deeper into an already stage-levitating montuno groove. As a leading force in Afro-Caribbean music for more than half a century, the NEA Jazz Master and nine-time Grammy Award winner was the last great bandleader to emerge from the Palladium Ballrooms golden era. He helped spark the birth of salsa at Fania Records in the 1970s, and galvanized Latin jazz with his fearsome septet in the late 1980s Br />Join us for an entertaining conversation with one of the fiercest champions of Latin jazz: pianist, bandleader, 9-time Grammy award-winner and NEA jazz Master Eddie Palmieri, hosted by percussionist and SFJAZZ Resident Artistic Director John Santos. .Artist PersonnelEddie PalmieriJohn SantosArtist Websiteeddiepalmierimusic.comGenresLatin"Eddie Palmieri. . .has been the most consistently innovative artist in Afro-Cuban music in the United States for the past 30 years.
