"...one of the greatest musicians and arrangers in the world."
-- Christian McBride --

 

"There are two musicians in this business who I can say are jewels.
One is George Duke and the other is Ed Palermo."
-- Napoleon Murphy Brock --

 

"He (Ed) has a breathtaking approach to re-contextualizing everything in a fantasia that swoops from Frank's (Zappa) work to Todd Rundgren to
Wayne Shorter to whatever - just traveling through the history of music.
I was absolutely flabbergasted."
-- Mike Keneally --

Dear Palermo Big Band
fans and friends,

 

In response to the current health crisis,
we are postponing all of our performances until further notice. We look to returning to the stage and bringing you the best live music from some of the most talented composers from around the world.

Stay safe. Be well. Stay home.
Social-distance.
And don't be a jerk-off, vote!!

With love, Ed
