    Salute the man who is Afro-Caribbean jazz!

     

    New York’s very own piano king, NEA Jazz Master Eddie Palmieri is celebrating the third decade of his historic octet. With its Latin rhythm section, hard-bopping horns and Palmieri piano thunder, the group changed the course of jazz. Hear its whole history come alive on one electrifying night.
