Mi luz mayor, Eddie Palmieri

In his latest work, the pianist, who was born in New York to Puerto Rican parents, draws on his art to express the emotional journey of the illness of his wife, Iraida, her death in 2014, and his subsequent mourning. Renowned as one of the most daring and ingenious salsa pianists, Palmieri reinvented the genre and pushed the music to its boundaries with jazz. In Mi luz mayor, the virtuoso shows a joyful mastery of the keyboard, accompanied by colleagues like Hermán Olivera, Gilberto Santa Rosa, and Carlos Santana. The result is an album that is an instant classic, with outstanding numbers like “Abarriba cumbiaremos,” “Chica ni lambo,” “Mi congo,” “Mi luz mayor,” and “Qué falta tú me haces.”
