With a discography that includes 36 titles, Mr. Palmieri has been awarded nine Grammy Awards.  Born in Spanish Harlem in 1936, Eddie began piano studies at an early age, as did his celebrated older brother, the late Salsa legend and pianist, Charlie Palmieri.  For Latin New Yorkers of Eddie’s generation, music was a vehicle out of El Barrio.  At age 11, he auditioned at Weil Recital Hall, which is next door to Carnegie Hall, a venue as far from the Bronx as he could imagine.  Possessed by a desire to play the drums, Palmieri joined his uncle’s orchestra at age 13, where he played timbales.  Says Palmieri, “By 15, it was good-bye timbales and back to the piano until this day.  I’m a frustrated percussionist, so I take it out on the piano.”

Eddie Palmieri embraces the future of his music by blazing a distinctive musical path to the delight of fans across the globe.  He has one of the most actively touring Salsa and Latin Jazz orchestras to date, tours of which have taken him to Europe, Asia, Australia, Latin America, North Africa and throughout the Caribbean.  A true powerhouse of brilliance known for his astute arranging skills and historic compositions, Mr. Palmieri has shown that time is infinite with respect to his repertoire as he continues to thrill audiences with his legendary style.
