Palmieri plays music... deeper than any salsa and funkier than any Latin jazz.
- Canary Summer 2002
“Palmieri plays the piano like Muhammad Ali boxed... [his] left hand could stop a truck. His right could outrun an Olympian. And the two mitts together make music so percussive and chord-filled, so dense and driving, that Palmieri can deliver the energy of an entire band even when playing solo.”
- Tom Surowicz, Twin Cities Reader, Minneapolis
“Salsa boasts many brilliant musicians... but none quite like the eccentric Eddie Palmieri—at once the Miles Davis and James Brown of the genre.”
- Alan Leeds, City Pages, Minneapolis
“Eddie Palmieri... has been the most consistently innovative artist in Afro-Cuban music in the United States for the past 30 years.”
- Fernando Gonzalez, Boston Globe, Boston
