Celebrating his 80th year, 10-time Grammy Award-winner and National Endowment for the Arts Jazz Master, Eddie Palmieri hosts a party for the ages featuring some of the finest musicians around. With an exceptionally accomplished and prolific body of work, Palmieri remains an engaging innovator and a joyful unifier whose ideas explode from the stage with kinetic energy.

Regarded as one of the top pianists of the past 60 years, Palmieri is a celebrated bandleader, arranger, and titan of salsa and Latin jazz. By skillfully fusing the rhythms of Puerto Rico with the melodic and harmonic complexity of his jazz influences (Thelonious Monk, Herbie Hancock, and McCoy Tyner, to name a few) Palmieri has established himself as a musical innovator whose work is both bold and downright danceable.

Palmieri has received numerous honors: Eubie Blake Award (1991); Most Exciting Latin Performance, presented by the BBC in London (2002); Yale University’s Chubb Fellowship, usually reserved for international heads of state, but given to Palmieri in recognition of his work building communities through music (2002); Harlem Renaissance Award (2005); Jay McShann Lifetime Achievement Award (2008), and an induction into the Oklahoma Jazz Hall of Fame (2008).
