Eddie Palmieri Latin Jazz Band / Carlos Henriquez Quintet
Symphony Center Presents Jazz Series
Friday, January 16, 2015
Extraordinary bandleader Eddie Palmieri, whose astounding combination of dexterity, rhythmic drive and freewheeling power recall Thelonious Monk, brings his septet to Symphony Center. With its battery of congas, bongos and timbales bolstering Palmieri’s own percussive attack, this band is sure to raise the roof with its special brand of Latin jazz.
Formidable young bassist Carlos Henriquez, a member of the Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra, will start the evening with his quintet.
