The world has long admired the Harlem-born, eight-time GRAMMY® Award-winning Eddie Palmieri as one of the foremost Latin pianists of the last half-century. Palmieri, who in 2005 celebrates an amazing 50-year career as a professional musician, simply revolutionized the sound of Latin music, an accomplishment that alone would ensure his place in the music pantheon. On Listen Here! the maestro takes his jazz involvement to another level. He assembles an all-star jazz cohort of guest soloists—Michael Brecker, Regina Carter, Christian McBride, Nicholas Payton, David Sanchez, and John Scofield and propels them with bassist John Benitez, Cuban traps wizard Horacio "El Negro" Hernandez, and master conguero Giovanni Hidalgo, all veterans of various Palmieri ensembles. Following the pianist’s logic, the players immediately enter his world and produce a magical recital that tackles jazz on its own terms and bears Palmieri’s unmistakable tonal imprint.
