Under the leadership of arranger/ composer/ bandleader/ saxophonist Ed Palermo, the Ed Palermo Big Band has
been together since 1980, performing live around New York (NYC’s Iridium, Marlboro’s The Falcon) and at US and
international jazz (and Zappa!) festivals, and recording albums to the delight of fans and critics worldwide.
Composed of top-notch jazz musicians, the tightly-honed big band performs Palermo’s extraordinary
arrangements, which combine music from the worlds of rock, pop and blues (Frank Zappa, Todd Rundgren, Paul
Butterfield, The Beatles) alongside jazz (Thelonious Monk, John Coltrane, Mile Davis) and Palermo originals
