Eddie Palmieri and Los Pleneros, Aaron Davis Hall

What can you say when two musical institutions join forces to create a new sound based on time honored traditions? On 7/30/99 one such meeting took place in the plaza in front of Aaron Davis Hall in NYs Harlem neighborhood. Eddie Palmieri's "La Perfecta II" and Los Pleneros de la 21 met to play some tunes they had recorded together on Palmieri's Rumbero Del Piano release. The fireworks that ensued swept up the crowd and a great time was had by all.
