Puerto Rican pianist Eddie Palmieri has excited audiences for over 50 years with his salsa-meets-jazz arrangements and bold, charismatic drive. A legendary musical powerhouse, Palmieri serves up Afro-Cuban rhythms infused with spirited jazz that will have listeners at Jefferson Center's Shaftman Performance Hall dancing in (and perhaps out of) their seats. The infectious performance of this nine-time Grammy award-winner pushes the boundaries of abstraction, even as it embraces the roots of traditional Latin jazz. *Immediately following the show, Roanoke’s hottest tradition returns to Jefferson Center’s Fitzpatrick Hall! The Latin rhythms continue into the early morning hours at the 10th Annual Latin Dance Party.
