EDITORS’ NOTES

After six decades as a restlessly creative Latin jazz innovator, Eddie Palmieri sounds as vibrant, eclectic and playful as ever on Sabiduría. The pianist shifts with gliding ease between strutting rhythms and gorgeous melodies, fearlessly guiding his outfit through these genre-hopping jams. That all-star ensemble plays with both the looseness of a wild improv session and the locked-in tightness of a swinging dance band, unleashing a blazing sax-and-trumpet duel on "Wise Bata Blues”, adding the offbeat combo of vibes and violin to the classic salsa groove of “La Cancha” and spiking the hard-driving funk of the title track with thrilling fusion-era solos.
