Eddie Palmieri will be headlining 6 nights at The Blue Note in New York

A Grammy Award-winning pianist, bandleader, musician, and composer, Eddie Palmieri is the founder of the bands La Perfecta, La Perfecta II, and Harlem River Drive. In 1975, Palmieri won his first Grammy Award for Best Latin Recording. More Grammys would follow for Palmieri — his total is currently at 10 — as his Masterpiece recording with Tito Puente alone won two awards.

Palmieri has also been recognized as Outstanding Producer of the Year by the National Foundation of Popular Culture, beyond receiving the Latin Academy of Recording Arts & Sciences Lifetime Achievement Award and a National Endowment For The Arts Jazz Master; his song “Azucar Pa’ Ti” is now part of the National Recording Registry by the Library of Congress.
