Known as one of the finest pianists of the past 60 years, Eddie Palmieri is a bandleader, arranger and composer of salsa and Latin jazz. His playing skillfully fuses the rhythm of his Puerto Rican heritage with the complexity of his jazz influences: Thelonious Monk, Herbie Hancock, McCoy Tyner as well as his older brother, Charlie Palmieri. Palmieri’s parents emigrated from Ponce, Puerto Rico to New York City in 1926. Born in Spanish Harlem and raised in the Bronx, Palmieri learned to play the piano at an early age, and at 13, he joined his uncle’s orchestra, playing timbales. Palmieri’s professional career as a pianist took off with various bands in the early 1950s including Eddie Forrester, Johnny Segui’s, and the popular Tito Rodriguez Orchestra. In 1961, Palmieri formed his own band, La Perfecta, which featured an unconventional front line of trombones rather than the trumpets customary in Latin orchestras. This created an innovative sound that mixed American jazz into Afro-Caribbean rhythms, surprising critics and fans alike. Palmieri disbanded La Perfecta in 1968 to pursue different musical endeavors, though he would return to the band’s music in the 2000s.

When “High Priestess of Soul” Nina Simone first heard about the tragic bombing deaths of four young girls in an Alabama church in 1963, the singer-songwriter turned to her music as a means of expressing the country’s agony. “Four Women” and Simone’s other evocative activist anthems sang to a truth that the world needed to hear. And it is a truth that remains sung to this day. This musical includes some of Simone’s most popular Civil Rights anthems, like “Mississippi Goddam,” “Go Limp,” and “Young, Gifted, and Black” to look at an artist and the women around her as their journey leads them down a path of discovery and healing. Written by Christina Ham and directed by Valerie Curtis-Newton, Nina Simone: Four Women makes its West Coast premiere courtesy of Seattle Rep at the Bagley Wright Theatre.
