Editorial Reviews

Product Description

The Puerto Rican pianist/bandleader Eddie Palmieri has reigned as "The Sun of Latin Music" for fifty years. He innovated salsa music with his two-trombone La Perfecta groups, and his propulsive piano style combines McCoy Tyner’s power and Thelonious Monk’s dark, chordal shadings. On this CD, Palmieri is backed by his long-time combo, augmented by special guest stars. Six of the ten tracks were written by the maestro, including the evocative trio track, "La Gitana" with guitarist John Scofield. But the highlights of this date are Palmieri’s sizzling takes on four jazz classics. The Dizzy Gillespie hit "Tin Tin Deo" is signatured by David Sanchez's Latin-tempoed tenor. Monk’s "In Walked Bud," dances with a Palladium-era pulse. Horace Silver’s "Nica’s Dream" is graced by violinist Regina Carter's sparkling strings and Nicholas Payton's neoclassic trumpet tones. The Eddie Harris-penned title track, with Michael Brecker's Traneish solo and Christian McBride's bold basslines, shows why Mr. Palmieri’s recording represents the finest in Afro-Cubop. --Eugene Holley, Jr.

5.0 out of 5 stars Eddie Palmieri's crowning achievement June 28, 2005
Format:Audio CD
The 68-year-old Mr. Palmieri, celebrating 50 years in the music business with this release, has lost none of his fire even as he's achieved a gravitas and presence without peer in Latin Jazz. Combining an approach that draws from the masters of 20th century jazz piano, including Bud Powell, Horace Silver, Thelonius Monk, and McCoy Tyner--and even younger players like Hilton Ruiz and Danilo Perez--in the end he carves out a place for himself that is uniquely his own.

It helps to have a working band comprising some of the very finest jazz musicians on the scene today: Brian Lynch (trumpet); Conrad Herwig (trombone), Donald Harrison (alto sax), John Benitez (bass), Horacio "El Negro" Hernandez (drums), and Giovanni Hildago (congas). Add to that guest appearances by Michael Brecker (tenor sax), Regina Carter (violin), John Scofield (acoustic and electric guitar), David Sanchez (tenor sax), Nicholas Payton (trumpet), and Christian McBride (bass), and you have a musical assemblage of astounding range and expression. Combine all the above with some brilliantly chosen standards and some very attractive Palmieri originals, killer arrangements full of surprise, nuance, and exuberance, a very high level of commitment by all the players (no one's mailing in their chops here!), and a recording of extreme clarity and brilliance, and you have, I think it can be said without contradiction, one of the very finest discs of Latin jazz every recorded.

I especially like the way the leader has organized the program: the originals and standards, the slower numbers and more up-tempo ones--all flowing together in almost suite-like fashion. And he gives the guest soloists quite different and challenging settings to strut their stuff.

4.0 out of 5 stars Listen Here to Eddie's Best "Latin Jazz" September 21, 2005
Format:Audio CD
With "Listen Here" the "latin monk" Eddie Palmieri explores his jazzier roots with guests soloists and his excellent working band with great sucess. It's fun and upbeat[like Eddie] but it is NOT big band latin jazz. For that turn to Eddie's cd's "La Perfecta" and "Obra Maestra". This cd has more of a small unit jazz flavor with several jazz standards[Monk,Silver] and Eddie originals. Frankly to my ears the originals work better.Regina Carter[violin] burns on "In Flight" and sax player Michael Brecker[who is very ill by the way] cooks on "Listen Here". Listen Here seems to work best with the pared down units in the several formats presented here. Eddie's percussive Monk-like piano playing is particually interesting on La Gitano with great subtle accoustic guitar work by John Scofield. Fans of Eddie's big band latin jazz may be dissapointed or suprised[I was pleasently] but this is Eddie reaching and stretching his art. I hope he cotinues to evolve. Heck he's only 68 years old! Reccommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fabulous Latin Jazz March 25, 2006
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This is my favorite Latin Jazz album to date. It is true that this is not the typical tropical big band sound. However, if you like variety (the first track includes jazz violin) and sheer musical talent, you should at least listen to the album samples.

5.0 out of 5 stars Big Full Latin Jazz Sound October 15, 2006
Format:Audio CD
A quick sampling of the openning track 'In Flight' and you will be hooked. If you are still on the fence about buying this album try the title cut 'Listen Here'. If these two tunes alone do not have you purchasing the album you may have a hole in your soul. This album swings and is great from front to back. Big latin jazz sound with excellent percussions, swinging horn arrangements and Eddie's pianio bring it all together and driving it forward. There is a reason why the man has won seven GRAMMY's. I love this album. If you like jazz or just music with a beat you will not be disappointed.

5.0 out of 5 stars Maravilloso reencuentro con el jazz January 13, 2006
By Javiwer
Format:Audio CD
Para muchos, la inesperada vuelta de Palmieri al jazz latino, dejando un poco de lado los ritmos salseros y rumberos, pero sin alejarse demasiado de sus sonidos caribeños más característicos. Es, sin lugar a dudas, una obra maestra del jazz afrocubano y de lo mejor que ha dado este género en los últimos años. Además, cuenta con maravillosas colaboraciones que hacen de este album un disco inolvidable e indispensable para cualquier amante del buen jazz.

3.0 out of 5 stars All Jazz September 9, 2005
By carmina
Format:Audio CD
I was disappointed in Eddie Palmieri's new CD. I am a fan of his Ritmo Caliente CD. I listen to salsas and chachas alot. But this CD has only one chacha and is strictly jazz. I wouldn't even classify the CD in the Latin Jazz catagory. While it is good music for sure, it wasn't exactly what I have heard from him before and not what I was looking for.

5.0 out of 5 stars Listen here! September 29, 2005

Format:Audio CD
SIn lugar a dudas el mejor album de Eddie en los últimos años, incluso mejor que "master piece" con el gran Tito Puente. Con un sonido muy latin-jazz os encantará a todos.

The reason I'd rated Eddie Palmieri's cd Listen Here with (5) stars is because the master does an excellent jos of showcasing not only himself on the jazz piano , but the members of the Salsa band ,in particular , Ragina Carter on the violin , who appears to myself to be purely world class (very good), in In Flight , along with . Sanchez and McBride who also contribute real solid sax tenor.This appraisal is not merely via reading other reviews , but as a first time listener of some of Palmieri's works . Keep up the good work and best of luck to everyone involved.
