had the opportunity to attend a performance that
Palmieri gave at the Blue Note in New York
City on February 28, 2001. He is a brilliant and
creative piano player and bandleader.
first began playing the piano at the age of eight,
studying with Margaret Bonds and then with Carlos
Savada, who's technique Eddie still uses to this
day. Eddie worked with the Tito Rodriguez Orchestra
before he formed his own band, "Conjunto La Perfecta,"
in 1961. The sound of La Perfecta is very exciting
and highly original.
