I Dig Jazz

The simplest way to describe pianist Eddie Palmieri is that he is a true Latin all-star with true jazz sensibilities. After Palmieri’s parents moved from Puerto Rico to the mainland, the pianist was born in Spanish Harlem on December 15, 1936. Growing up in the Bronx, Palmieri spent time with a variety of bands through the 1950s (led by Johnny Segui and Tito Rodriguez) and created his own group, La Perfecta, in 1961. That band recorded its first album in 1962 and some 50 more Palmieri discs have followed right up to Sabiduria (Knowledge) released in 2017.
