La Perfecta II by Eddie Palmieri

It is always good to hear Eddie Palmieri's piano musings, and once again, his superb performances come to the listening audience in his CD release, LA PERFECTA II. The collection has 11 song selections that highlight the jazz piano stylings of Eddie Palmieri. Brian Lynch on trumpet and Conrad Herwig on trombone are some of the fine musicians who add splendid solo work on these songs. Conrad Herwig is one of the best trombone players in the jazz world today, and he always turns in enjoyable performances.

"Cuddles," "Aperion," "Elena, Elena," "Bianco's Waltz," and "Ay Que Ricc II" are among the songs. "Our Routine" will intrigue jazz listeners with its unusual jazz motifs and imaginative themes.

For a fine introduction to Eddie Palmieri and his piano, nothing could be finer than LA PERFECTA II. This collection is filled with imaginative performances and is entertaining to listen to.
