AZUCAR PA TI {sugar for you) is the crowning masterpiece
of La Perfecta..At 9:35 is one of the longest jams up to that time.
This number certainly lives up to it's name
with E. P.'s gem of piano solo..the flute work
of George Castro...The those incredible trombones
plus the DRIVE that the rhythm section brings to the table
is nothing short of being amazing!
Here i have assembled a phantasmagoric collage
montage to create a unity with song and image.
I sincerely hope that the youtube audience will enjoy it....
Here is E.P. in his own words.....
" In unity there is strength" conscientous natural
musical minds working together, united in thought
will constantly deliver power, the drive, and the
constant search of the individual mind to create, create,
create, ect.
Being a member and leader of this organization i truly
believe that La Perfecta in this album digs deeply into
that soul bag. - Eddie Palmieri

Eddie Palmieri's "Azucar Pa Ti" was just inducted into the 2009 National
Recording Registry of the United States Library of Congress June 23, 2010!

This is direct from the Library of Congress press release:
"Under the terms of the National Recording Preservation Act of 2000, the Librarian, with advice from the Library's National Recording Preservation Board (NRPB), is tasked with selecting 25 recordings that are "culturally, historically, or aesthetically significant" and are at least 10 years old. The selections for the 2009 registry bring the total number of recordings to 300.
"It is time to once again celebrate the nation's rich sonic history and the importance of sound recordings in our lives," said Billington. "This latest list of selections showcases the diverse beauty, humanity and artistry found in the American soundscape. The Library's Packard Campus for Audio Visual Conservation will partner with many individuals and organizations to preserve and sustain these significant examples of our creative spirit so that they can inform and enrich the lives of modern and future generations."
Additions to the registry also feature notable performances by Little Richard, Willie Nelson, The Band, The Staple Singers, Eddie Palmieri, Ethel Merman and Patti Smith."
"16. "Azucar Pa Ti," Eddie Palmieri (1965)
This breakthrough album was the result of a conscious effort by pianist and bandleader Eddie Palmieri to recreate on record the new Latin sounds that he and his eight-piece "La Perfecta" band were playing nightly in New York nightclubs and ballrooms in the early 1960s, and it set trends for years to come. Though steeped in the earlier Afro-Cuban styles that he loved, Palmieri led a band that represented several Latin music traditions and was particularly distinguished by the contributions of the hard-charging, Bronx-born trombonist Barry Rogers."
