Event Description

Sat Oct 5, 2013
7pm   Ed Palermo Big Band Ed Palermo is not a “business as usual” musician.His Big Band may deliver Zappa, Hendrix, Paul Butterfield & MikeBloomfield or one of Ed’s own compositions, with lush turns and twists.The legendary Gil Evans wonderfully articulated Palermo’s unusualapproach to traditional instrumentation: “I first heard Ed Palermo’s music in a small club in the SoHo section of Manhattan. He was usingthe instrumentation of a traditional big band yet his arrangements andsongs were anything but that. When I thought the music was going acertain direction, it would suddenly turn a corner. Ed has the abilityto keep that important balance between cohesiveness andunpredictability. Ed Palermo’s music is alive and represents now.” Ed’sinterpretation of the music of iconoclastic composer Frank Zappa hasbrought him wide recognition. His first CD of this material, “the edpalermo big band plays the music of frank zappa”, garnered ravereviews. Downbeat magazine gave “the ed palermo big band plays themusic of frank zappa” a 4-star review. Palermo’s second CD of Zappamaterial, entitled “Take Your Clothes Off When You Dance” has beenreceived with equal enthusiasm from publications all over the world,including another rave from Downbeat.
