Product Description

Format: Music CD, Concord Picante Records. Latin music CD release from Eddie Palmieri with the album Listen Here!. Released on the label Concord Picante Records. Salsa music CD. This hard to find pre-owned music CD is fully guaranteed.

Amazon.com

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.

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.

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.

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.

This CD is not a big band Latin jazz dance collection like for instance the hip swinging "La Perfecta" or the more recent smoking"La Perfecta II. No this is without a doubt a great musical experience from a mature master who has blended the beautiful music and rhythms' of the Caribbean, Africa, American Jazz and the creative groundbreaking music of the New York Salsa scene. This in my opinion is Eddie at his best; most challenged comfortable playing and being inspired by other very talented musicians. This was the case when he recorded his two innovative, brilliant recordings with Cal Tjader that is still considered classics of Latin Jazz. To this day "El Sonido Nuevo" sounds as fresh and innovative as the day it was recorded and is a must have for any serious Latin jazz collection.

This CD is of that same musical genre with a large combo (core) group of very talented musicians being joined by several additional gifted musicians. In a nutshell this CD burns, cooks, is hot, cool, subtle, and beautifully introspective. Palmieri's mastery of the piano reminding me of modern classic greats such as, Thelonius Monk, McCoy Tyner, Keith Jarrett, and passionate players like Lyle Mays and Eliane Elias. Listening to this disc is like going to that "once in a lifetime" musical event that you always remember for the rest of your life. What we have here is a wonderful selection of arrangements with an extremely talented group of musicians playing in unison one leading into another creating a beautiful circular musical dance. The songs produced here overflowing with arousing, spellbinding, colorful and passionate music. It is in summary a musical and technical knockout, an absolutely brilliant recording from one of New York City's finest musicians. And yes it's a must have CD to add to your collection.

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.
