"Palmieri's genius is to stay rooted at the rhythmic heart of his band while playing with the improvisational flair of Horace Silver or McCoy Tyner. It is a musical sleight of hand that effortlessly links the salsa dura of his 1960s heyday to hard bop and beyond." - The Guardian

“We Always Swing”® Jazz Series to Support Puerto Rico Recovery by Donating A Portion of Eddie Palmieri Ticket Sales To Relief Effort

In the wake of the devastating and continued impact of Hurricane Maria on Puerto Rico, the “We Always Swing”® Jazz Series announced the organization will donate $5 to the island’s recovery effort for every ticket sold to the upcoming October 29 Eddie Palmieri Concert at the Missouri Theatre. Born in New York, Palmieri’s parents emigrated from Ponce, Puerto Rico, in 1926. The legendary pianist, bandleader and composer who has helped shape Latin Jazz for more than half-century, returns to the island regularly, selling out concerts routinely, performing in front of audiences in the thousands who flock to arenas and stadiums to hear him lead his various bands.
