This review is from: Palmas (Audio CD)
This disc represents the highpoint of Eddie's latin jazz fusion. I had the good fortune to see the songs played live just before the disc was released. To my surprise, the disc was just as good as the live show. Eddie really lets his very gifted musicians stretch out for their solos. Brian Lynch, one of the greatest jazz trumpeters alive, simply scorches. This is to take nothing away from the very talented Donald Harrison on sax and Conrad Herwig on trombone. Holding down the rhythm is Jose Claussel on terrific timbales. But, as always, the guiding genius is Eddie Palmieri, the justly called Mozart of latin music. Calling Eddie a genius is an understatement, but this is one of the best from a genius.
