Eddie Palmieri's Afro Caribbean Jazz Sextet included
Eddie Palmieri on Piano, Ruben Rodriguez on Bass, Jose Clausell
on Timbales, Vicente "Little Johnny" Rivero on Congas, Ivan Renta on Tenor
Saxophone, Richie Viruet on Trumpet, and
(Guest) on Trombone. I arrived for this set (after the ballet) during a piano-conga
conversation, steady and fierce. Immediately, I felt the definitive dance rhythms,
warm and tropical, before they switched to melancholy fusion. Clausell's timbales
(that look like small drums) worked together with "Little Johnny" Rivero's congas
to build the pulse. This true Latin fervor included numerous duos, and, when Ivan
Renta infused the music with his moody, bluesy sax, Rivero's congas turned slow
and sultry. Clausell's cymbals helped turn mambo to rhumba, and this meandering
melody became momentous.
"In Walked Bud", written by Thelonius Monk and dedicated to
went wild, with soulful and sensational tones and tempos. Eddie Palmieri
led Richie Viruet, Ivan Renta, and guest,
on a brassy bravura, while Rubén Rodriguez and the percussion merged to set up a
surprise. Just when you thought the set was over, "Little Johnny" Rivero fired up
a conga solo and the band finished with a frenzied finale.
