This year, legendary Latin Jazz pianist, bandleader, composer and NYC native Eddie Palmieri released, Sabiduria, his first album in over a decade via Ropeadope. KPCC's Take Two called Sabiduria "a rollicking affair, encompassing the full range of the maestro’s more than 60 years in the business — everything from classic salsa to modern funk, New York sophistication to New Orleans strut, small-combo conversations to big-ensemble workouts."

Born to Puerto Rican parents in Harlem and raised in the Bronx, the 80 year old 10-time Grammy Award winner is considered the "reigning patriarch of Afro-Latin music in the U.S.” A recipient of the Latin Academy of Recording Arts & Sciences Lifetime Achievement Award and a National Endowment For The Arts Jazz Master, two of his performances have been recorded for the Smithsonian National Museum of American History archives, and his song “Azucar Pa' Ti” has been added to the National Recording Registry by the Library of Congress.
