New York, NY (Top40 Charts) A titan of Latin Jazz and Salsa music, Eddie Palmieri, known as "El Maestro," is still making musical history. At 81 years old, the multi-Grammy Award winning pianist and music legend today releases his new album Full Circle. Featuring 8 classic salsa tracks recorded with stunning cast of musicians from New York and beyond, the album is his first album released on Palmieri's newly launched imprint Uprising Music via Ropeadope. The album release coincides with the release of the Palmieri Salsa Jams App, the world's first interactive Salsa music app on Christian Scott aTunde Adjuah's Stretch Music App platform.

A recipient of The National Endowment for the Arts' distinguished Jazz Master Award and the Latin Academy of Recording Arts & Science Lifetime Achievement Award, Palmieri has always been at the forefront of major shifts and modernizations in the music industry. From using a front line of trombones rather than the trumpets customary in Latin orchestras in his heralded "La Perfecta" band, to breaking the three and a half minute industry imposed standard recording length with his nine and a half minute recording of "Azucar Pa' Ti," Palmieri has always pushed the creative envelope. The release of some of his greatest Salsa classics in the form of an interactive app is just another in a long line of firsts for the music icon.

Full Circle finds Mr. Palmieri teamed with world-class musicians from the New York scene that have played with him over the last decade; "Little" Johnny Rivero, Luques Curtis, Jonathan Powell, Louis Fouché, and many more. On Full Circle listeners will find the basic harmonic and rhythmic structures of the original recordings but with Eddie's solos freer and more aggressive than ever. These tracks are true representations of Palmieri at the peak of his creative powers.

The Palmieri Salsa Jams App (powered by Stretch Music and Spectrum) is sure to please musicians and audiophiles alike. It gives musicians the ability to completely control their listening, practicing, and learning experience by customizing the player to fit their specific needs and goals. The app has the capability to mute, solo, pan and fade any instrument chosen along with tempo control, looping and sheet music for each part.
As he has throughout his 50+ year career, Eddie Palmieri is once again pushing boundaries by building bridges; between musicians, listeners, and now with young students with interactive technology. Full Circle begins yet another chapter in the Palmieri legacy.
