Charlie Palmieri

Ask the great pianist Eddie Palmieri who the greatest pianist was and he will tell you it was his brother Charlie.

There’s a good reason for that.

Charlie Palmieri con Machito!

Fireworks start at: 1:32

“Charlie Palmieri plays MARIA CERVANTES which is an inspiration of the BORICUA composer Noro Morales. In this video you will see some of the members of Machito Orchestra who provide the descarga music.”

In praise of Jack Conte – “Professional Musicians React”

We’re living in a golden age of music education.

There’s never been a time in history when so much quality education was available to so many people.

One of the people who’s made a major contribution to this is Jack Conte, founder of Patreon.

Patreon is a service that allows artists of all kinds – including musicians and music educators – to not only share quality info but also make a living from their work.

As if that wasn’t enough, Jack hosts one of the best music shows on the Internet: “Professional Musicians React.”

He and his colleagues cover the entire gamut of music.

In this episode he and two special guests talk about the art of two of the great singers. (Not strictly a jazz topic, but this episode will change the way you listen to singers for the rest of your life.)

Enjoy!

“The mind, once stretched by a new idea, never returns to its original dimensions.”
– Ralph Waldo Emerson

Thanks Jack.
