"...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 --

Press Release (pdf)

Here's the cover art tall tale: It's the year 2020, and times are tough all over. Set on Abbey Road in London, England, the big band has just received a rather large cash advance for their next album, but a "down-on-his-luck" Edvard has his eyes on the prize for himself. His musicians, who have yet to see their share of the royalties from The Great Un-American Songbook Vols I+2, are not happy and want their money.

"Run for Your Life", Lord Edvard!
The Great Un-American Songbook Vol. III
