EDDIE PALMIERI - JUSTICIA






















A late 60s masterpiece from Eddie Palmieri - a brilliant set of Latin tracks with a modern jazz edge that's really astounding!Its essence is an experimentalism combining a strong sense of Cuban tradition with a modal piano style thats the reult of Palmieris admiration of Mccoy Tyner. From the first note of the record, Eddie's piano makes a bold statement of difference edging into the rest of the group with slight modern touches, and a slightly off-kilter sound that marks the record as something fresh and new. Some tracks are straight ahead, with vocals by Ismael Quintana, but still have a dark undercurrent from Eddie's piano and others are much more open-ended, with a freewheeling style that shows all the freedoms to come in the 70s.

This was one of the first posts from my blog-just putting it up again as I am having problems with photos at blogger and uploads at rapidshare-some new stuff coming soon.

Is there ANY chance I can get you to re-up this one Bacoso? The CD transfers just suck.
