Album Description

The ED PALERMO BIG BAND Delivers an Entrancing Tribute to Legendary Texas Blues/Jazz Multi-Instrumentalist EDGAR WINTER with I’VE GOT NEWS FOR YOU: THE MUSIC OF EDGAR WINTER

An Instrumental and Vocal Tour de Force, the Sky Cat Records Release Features Palermo’s Swaggering 17-Piece Jazz Orchestra Joyfully Conjuring a Soul-filled, Blues-Drenched Sound

Guest Artists Include Guitarists Robben Ford and Jimmy Leahy, Violinist Katie Jacoby, and Vocalists Kimberly Davis, Keith Anthony Fluitt, Vanesse Thomas, Chrissi Poland, Deb Lyons, Carlos Murguía, and Rob Paparozzi

For acclaimed jazz big band leader, arranger, composer and saxophonist Ed Palermo, Edgar Winter wasn’t just a gateway drug to jazz. To a youth raised on New Jersey's shore, the music of the Texan multi-instrumental star was a mind-expanding key that unlocked the overlapping realms of blues, jazz and rock. There’s a straight line between Palermo’s teenage immersion in Winter’s music and the emergence decades later of his big band, which has earned international renown for its authentically warped arrangements of Frank Zappa’s music. Palermo has long included Winter material in the band’s wide-ranging book, but his new album on the Sky Cat Records, I’ve Got News For You: The Music of Edgar Winter, is his first dedicated to his early inspiration. Slated for release on Oct. 15, 2021, the album is almost indecently fun, as if someone crossed the New Testament Count Basie Orchestra’s book with a Zappa-designed R&B revue.
