With a musical career that spans over 50 years as a pianist, bandleader and composer of Salsa and Latin jazz, Eddie Palmieri made history by winning the first ever Grammy award for Best Latin recording in 1975. In 2013, Mr. Palmieri was honored with the NEA Jazz Masters Award, the nation’s highest honor in jazz, recognizing him as a true American Musical icon. 2013 also saw Mr. Palmieri given the Lifetime Achievement Award by the Latin Grammys. With 10 Grammys and 36 recordings to his name, Mr. Palmieri’s contribution to the Latin music canon is unparalleled. Through his influence in jazz, salsa, funk, and even boogaloo, Palmieri is a trailblazer whose genre-busting sound has managed to survive generations of shifting tastes and trends.
