One of the grand masters of the Latin jazz piano, Eddie Palmieri has had little new material, but more than makes up for it with this major release. Palmieri shows all the new kids in the Latin world just how it should be done with the energy and vitality of a teenager. In short, Rumbero del Piano kicks from start to finish as he rips into standards and original compositions. Somewhat the Afro Latin scholar, Palmieri has chosen his material carefully to include son montuno, bomba, and plena within the big band salsa lexicon. His piano solos, jagged slashes of color over rock steady rhythms, sear the paint off the walls in the process. Palmieri has never been in better form. --Derek Rath

"I'm African American from LA. I'm also a timbalero. I've spent some time New York in my life (Bronx, Brooklyn ). This album is must for percussionist and lovers of "Jazz Latino" and yes it's a staple for my collection. I practice to all numbers on this album and come off confident to play any gig!! What's unique is that Eddie pays homage to the sounds of the Bomba y Plena a dance found in Puerto Rico among Black Puerto Ricans(Cubans as well) I saw this in the pueblo called Loiza, Puerto Rico wile visting some friends. Eddie keeps it real. The brass and rythms sections are infectious as well as his piano playng!!. Eddie, I miss Charlie your brother along with "El Rey" Tito Puente!! hey folks order it you will not be disapointed!!! Thanks Amazon.com"

"For those who want a natural way to wake up each morning, this CD is the one. The songs are so intense that this is the first CD(and sometimes, the only one)that I listen to each day. Wichy(Camacho)and Herman(Olivera)help set the mood. Try "Cafe", "Donde Esta Mi Negra", and "Para Que Escuchen"."

"This album is full of Eddie Palmieri's great latin piano stylings. My favorite is the guajira "Cafe" he literally melts the CD with his playing. The bandmembers are also top notch."
