Eddy Palermo adds to the world of his swing, a very personal interpretation of understanding Brazilian music like few others.

In this production you can appreciate “Luiza” by Jobim, in which Palermo mixes a remarkable technical expertise with a great ability to express the right “saudade” that the track requires, and in which we say it without rhetoric does not make us regret that giant of the Brazilian guitar that was Baden Powell.

Playing entre amigos the album mixes the sounds and atmospheres characteristic of South America with those of jazz, this has ideally led us back to Joe Pass’s recordings dedicated to Latin America.

  • In the Italian landscape of jazz guitarists in particular those who recall the tradition of the bebop the figure of Eddy Palermo is without any doubt, one of the most authoritative.

But let’s get to the point, in this last recording work he has brought together, as he says in the subtitle, his “friends”, the guitarist returns to his old passion, Brazilian music.

The great familiarity that Eddy Palermo has with his instrument allows him to always express an extreme executive clarity.

The choice of the repertoire of course takes into account the tradition of the great Brazilian authors, such as Tom Jobim and Milton Nascimento.


The typically Brazilian voice of Pery Ribeiro in “Samba de Verao”, as well as the prestigious collaboration of Toninho Horta give this album an unmistakable impression.

So congratulations to our musician and good listening to all those who will not want to miss the opportunity to enrich their collection with this album.

His spontaneous way of playing is expressed with great technical skill and with an exceptional speed of execution that leaves intact and enjoyable all the sensitivity and musicality of which the Master is capable.

In improvisation, the phrasing fascinates the audience for its refined taste and imaginative creativity.

Playing entre amigos to all this Eddy adds, wrapped in the world of his swing, a very personal interpretation of understanding Brazilian music.

A hug and good luck.
Toninho Horta
