The ED PALERMO BIG BAND
Delivers an Entrancing Tribute to
Legendary Texas Blues/Jazz Multi-Instrumentalist
EDGAR WINTER
with
I’VE GOT NEWS FOR YOU: THE MUSIC OF EDGAR WINTER



An Instrumental and Vocal Tour de Force, the Sky Cat Records Release Features Palermo’s Swaggering 17-Piece Jazz Orchestra Joyfully Conjuring a Soul-filled, Blues-Drenched Sound

Guest Artists Include Guitarists Robben Ford and Jimmy Leahy, Violinist Katie Jacoby, and Vocalists Kimberly Davis, Keith Anthony Fluitt, Vaneese Thomas, Chrissi Poland, Deb Lyons, Carlos Murguía, and Rob Paparozzi

For acclaimed jazz big band leader, arranger, composer and saxophonist Ed Palermo, Edgar Winter wasn’t just a gateway drug to jazz. To a youth raised on New Jersey's shore, the music of the Texan multi-instrumental star was a mind-expanding key that unlocked the overlapping realms of blues, jazz and rock. There’s a straight line between Palermo’s teenage immersion in Winter’s music and the emergence decades later of his big band, which has earned international renown for its authentically warped arrangements of Frank Zappa’s music. Palermo has long included Winter material in the band’s wide-ranging book, but his new album on the Sky Cat Records, I’ve Got News For You: The Music of Edgar Winter, is his first dedicated to his early inspiration.

The Ed Palermo Big Band has cooked up a brilliantly arranged,
and gorgeously British songbook featuring the music of
The Beatles, Procol Harum, The Moody Blues, and of course
a healthy American serving of Frank Zappa.


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
