"I canít remember the last
a concert left me
The entire evening was a stunning balance of musical
precision, passion and power."
Crazy times call for
outrageous music, and few jazz ensembles are better prepared to meet
the surreality of this reality-TV-era than the antic and epically
creative Ed Palermo Big Band. The New Jersey saxophonist, composer
and arranger is best known for his celebrated performances
interpreting the ingenious compositions of Frank Zappa, an extensive
body of work documented on previous Cuneiform albums.

"...one of the
greatest musicians and arrangers in the world."
-- Christian McBride--
two musicians in this business who I can say are jewels.
One is George Duke and the other is Ed Palermo."

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."
demonstrates the ensembleís ongoing vitality better than the
stellar cast of players, with many longtime collaborators. Many
of these top-shelf musicians have been in the band for more than
a decade, and they bring wide ranging experience, expert
musicianship and emotional intensity to Palermoís music.
