Nine-time Grammy-winning pianist and bandleader Eddie Palmieri and his Latin jazz band bring their intoxicating blend of Afro-Cuban rhythms and funky jazz to the Lensic Peforming Arts Center (211 West San Francisco, Santa Fe) on Saturday, July 27. If you’re hankering for a gig that combines flawless chops and a serious pedigree—Palmieri was named 2013 National Endowment of the Arts Jazz Master—with a chance to mingle amongst fellow jazz-fusion fans, this is that show. Along with Palmieri’s peerless piano work, his Latin Jazz Band features trumpet, alto sax, bongos, congas, timbales and bass. Tickets range from $20 to $50 and are available in advance at Outpost Performance Space, the Lensic box office and online at ticketssantafe.org. The funk gets unwrapped at 7:30 p.m.
