Eddie Palmieri Celebrates 80th Birthday With Blue Note Residency and North American Tour


Legendary Latin Jazz pianist, bandleader, composer and NYC native Eddie Palmieri will celebrate his 80th Birthday with 12 shows at The Blue Note this week and will be hitting the road with this Latin Jazz Septet for a handful of North American tour dates.

His performance will feature new songs plus tracks from Sabiduria, his first album in over a decade. Released earlier this year via Ropeadope, KPCC’s Take Two called Sabiduria “a rollicking affair, encompassing the full range of the maestro’s more than 60 years in the business — everything from classic salsa to modern funk, New York sophistication to New Orleans strut, small-combo conversations to big-ensemble workouts.” The New York Times recently featured his live video performance of “Samba Do Suenho” and said “it shows by Mr. Palmieri is still the most respected living figure in Latin Jazz.” Watch the video HERE.
