Details of Eddie Palmieri and the Ticket Luck value
Hailing from New York City, Eddie Palmieri is known for his long lustrous career as a pianist, a career that has been there for more than five decades now. Over the course of all that time, Palmieri has been a bandleader of various Latin Jazz and Salsa orchestras, and with them his performances have been widely appraised and critically appreciated. With thirty six titles in his discography, Eddie Palmieri has rightfully claimed various awards and accolades including amazing nine Grammy Awards.
In his early childhood, while growing up in Spanish Harlem, Palmieri always has a flair and love for music. So he, along with his elder brother, started learning piano at a very early age. By the time Palmieri was just eleven years of age, he had his first audition as a pianist at the Weil Recital Hall, which stands right next to Carnegie Hall. Later on, Palmieri decided to venture as a percussionist which is why he joined his uncle’s orchestra to play timbales by the time he was thirteen. For about two years he played timbales and by the time he was fifteen he finally decided to say goodbye to Timbales and get back to doing what he does the best and that was to play piano. Till today, Eddie Palmieri sticks to playing piano and he does so with utmost loyalty and love towards the instrument. Submerge yourself in the beauty of the sound of his piano-playing and experience it for yourself this season with Eddie Palmieri tickets.
Palmieri has played alongside various bands all through his career, and Conjunto La Perfecta was the first of those bands that he formed back in 1961. Apart from him, the band also featured a well famed singer, Ismael Quintana. Charanga style of music was the most famous Latin dance music of that decade, and when it comes to Charanga style having at least two violinists is a must. But Palmieri defied that norm and went for two trombonists instead of violinists. With that, Eddie Palmieri gave birth to a much more heavier and richer sound which is still known his signature sound. This unique sound was all due to the two Trombonists in his band, Jose Rodriguez and Barry Rogers. With the combined forces, the group was able to come up with several arrangements that were record by the band. Other members of the group included Manny Oquendo, George Castro, Andy Gonzalez, Tommy Lopez and Dave Perez. During the height of their success, the group was known as the most innovative one thanks to their unique sound; and that fact is still admitted even today.
With his elder brother, Charlie Palmieri on the Organ, Palmieri recorded and released Vamonos Pa’l Monte back in 1971. Also in the same year, he recorded and released Eddie Palmieri & Friends in Concert at the University of Puerto Rico. Also in the same decade, in 1974, Eddie Palmieri made history when he claimed his first ever Grammy Award for Best Latin Recording and became the first Latin musician ever to do so. He won the award for his recording titled The Sun of Latin Music; the piece was arranged by Barry Rogers and Rene Hernandez while it was produced by Harvey Averne. Later in 1979, Palmieri also shared the stage with Dick Gregory, Patti LaBelle and Bob Marley at the Amandla Festival.
