For Immediate Release

The University of Hawaiʻi at Hilo Performing Arts Center kicks-off its 2012-13 season with the Eddie Palmieri - Brian Lynch Jazz Quartet on Thursday, October 4 at7:30 p.m. The quartet is the latest manifestation of the 20-plus-year musical relationship between Brian Lynch and Eddie Palmieri along with bassist Luques Curtis and Grammy- nominated drummer/composer Dafnis Prieto.

“The National Endowment for the Arts (NEA) recently bestowed the 2013 NEA Jazz Masters, the nation's highest honor in jazz, to nine-time Grammy Award winner and Latin music icon, Eddie Palmieri,” said Lee Dombroski, PAC manager. “Known for his charismatic power and bold innovative drive, Eddie Palmieri has a musical career that spans over 50 years as a bandleader of Salsa and Latin Jazz orchestras.

“Brian Lynch is a respected insider within both the hardcore straight ahead and Latin Jazz communities,” Dombroski added. “A 2007 Grammy Award winner, he is as comfortable negotiating the complexities of clave with Afro-Caribbean pioneer Eddie Palmieri as he swings through advanced harmony with bebop maestro Phil Woods. And Dafnis Prieto, whose revolutionary drumming techniques have had a powerful impact on both the Latin and jazz music scene, locally and internationally, completes the quartet along with bassist Luques Curtis. This is going to be a fantastic way to start the 2012-13 season!”
