August 2012 SFJAZZ Hotplate Mix

This month's SFJAZZ Hotplate features the First Lady of Latin Jazz Rebeca Mauleón paying tribute to Eddie Palmieri with a performance that will have the dance floor jumping. This event will take place this Thursday night at Amnesia (853 Valencia Street) with DJ Pat Les Stache starting things off spinning a choice selection of Latin gems roughly around 8pm. The evening will also include the Front Burner multi-media session on the fascinating life and times of the legendary Latin jazz musician and composer.

This exclusive Hotplate mix highlights some of Eddie Palmieri's most notable compositions as well as his collaborative work he did with Cal Tjader and the pianists' all-star group Harlem River Drive. Even though this mix only just begins to dive into the many brilliant compositions and recordings Palmieri has contributed to throughout his life, the hour-long audio exploration should help give a short glimpse as to why many people believe he is one of the most exciting and renowned Latin pianists and band leaders of his time. ENJOY!
