Eddie Palmieri Salsa Orchestra, Live In Concert: Newport Jazz 2013

Eddie Palmieri Salsa Orchestra performs at the 2013 Newport Jazz Festival.

Eddie Palmieri has earned the right to be confident: He's been leading Latin jazz and salsa bands for more than 50 years, and playing in them even longer. "I don't guess I'm going to excite you with my band," he's been known to say. "I know it." For a performance on Newport's main stage, he assembled a large group for maximum effect.
