UNH Traditional Jazz Series: Eddie Palmieri
Friday, January 27, 2023 - 8:00pm to 9:30pm
Known as one of the finest pianists of the past 60 years, Eddie Palmieri is a bandleader, arranger, and composer of salsa and Latin jazz. His playing skillfully fuses the rhythm of this Puerto Rican heritage with the complexity of his jazz influences: Thelonious Monk, Herbie Hancock, McCoy Tyner as well as his older brother Charlie Palmieri. In 2013, Palmieri was awarded the coveted Jazz Master award by the National Endowment for the Arts (NEA), which is the highest honor an American Jazz artist can receive.
