Event Review: Ed Palermo Big Band w/ Ray White
I saw the Cincinnati Conservatory of Music play Ed's charts a few months back, and it was an awesome show. The players were into it, the audience was into it, and the evening burned into a nice spot in my brain.
When I realized I would be in DC the night Ed opened - I bought a train ticket and stayed until he left the building. I majored in Musical Theatre Production - I have seen hundreds of concerts - and this my friend, was the best one ever...
The arrangements are breathtaking - mixing Zappas King Kong with King Crimson - Steely Dan with Led Zeppelin - and that was the opening number.
Zappa himself rarely played with 18 pieces, so the true Zappa fan is in for a treat. For many - this is better than Zappa - leaving out most of the childish lyrics and sticking to the music.
Ed Palermo adds alot to the charts - putting his years of "chops" into squeezing the most out of every note. I suggest taking a nap before watching this show - it's amazingly complex and will take alot of energy to appreciate.
Do not miss this show - get on his mailing list and wait until you can go again. I know it won't be last time I see him -
One of the hottest nightspots for jazz and other entertainment in Manhattan, centrally located just a few blocks away from Time Square, the Iridium was the Monday night home of 5-time Grammy winner and electric guitar innovator Les Paul. Every Monday night the tribute to Les Paul continues with his trio and special superstar guitar guests (recently celebrated by the amazing Jeff Beck!) On the last Tuesday of every month for over a year, Terese Genecco & Her Little Big Band have been blowing the roof off the joint with special guests Steve Rossi, Mike Berkowitz, Karen Mason, Mark Winkler, Judy Gold, Shaynee Rainbolt and more! It's usually a packed house, an indication that this show is really catching on!
Sacred steel guitarists Calvin Cooke, Aubrey Ghent, and brothers Chuck and Darick Campbell have risked censure by the House of God Church, where the tradition was born, in order to share their slippery licks in places like Times Square with... More »
Frank Zappa's purely musical genius nearly always trumps his satire whenever saxophonist-bandleader Palermo's 18-piece ensemble whips up the late composer-guitarist's repertoire, as they've been doing since 1980. And as FZ's longest-tenured... More »
