"...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 --

Folks, it's with the heaviest heart that I tell you of the passing of Tony Falco. I just heard that he died yesterday, October 28. We all knew he was ill for quite some time and feared this day may happen.
Tony Falco changed my life over ten years ago when he convinced me and my band to make the trek up north to his beautiful club, The Falcon. Tony never once asked me to "dial it down a tad" or keep my mouth shut about politics or anything that ruffled so many feathers the past few years.
I always saw the Falcon as MY Garrick Theater (Zappa fans know the reference). The club continues to be the best venue for my band to play and be weird.
God bless you and your family, Tony.
Rest in Peace, my eternal friend.
