Big Band Charts by Ed Palermo
Ed Palermo’s Big Band has been together since 1980 and has been playing and honing the music of Frank Zappa for close to five years, mainly in performance at the Bottom Line in New York City.
Palermo has recorded three critically-acclaimed big band albums and worked with Tito Puente for three years, Tony Bennett, Mel Torme, Lena Horne and many other musical greats. His approach was influenced by Todd Rundgren, Cannonball Adderley, Neil Young, Edgar Winter, Nelson Riddle, Charles Tolliver, Gene Ammons and “heavy-duty” Brian Wilson. His devotion to eclectic roots also includes classical composers such as Prokofiev and Shostakovich.
