THE MUSIC OF TODD RUNDGREN featuring THE ED PALERMO BIG BAND
Thursday, Jan 07, 2016 8:00 PM EST, Iridium, New York, NY
Ed Palermo’s Big Band has been together since 1980 and has been playing and honing the music of Frank Zappa (among other composers) for fifteen years, mainly in performance at the Bottom Line and Iridium nightclubs in New York City.
Their CDs, The Ed Palermo Big Band Plays the Music of Frank Zappa (If you have a copy, it’s now a collector’s item!!!), ‘Take Your Clothes Off When You Dance’ and the newly released ‘Eddy Loves Frank’ are concepts of love for the complex music of Frank Zappa. These crafty interpretations by the Ed Palermo Big Band stand as a testament to the longevity and originality of Zappa and his music. This music drives on its spontaneity and unpredictability. Palermo and his band bring this volatile music to life in a deft and powerful way, making it their own.
Made up of top New York musicians, the CDs also feature guest soloists: ‘Zappa-alums’ guitarist Mike Keneally and vibraphonist Dave Samuels, saxophonists Bob Mintzer and Chris Potter and guitarist Mike Stern.
Palermo has recorded two other critically-acclaimed big band albums and worked with Tito Puente, Tony Bennett, Mel Torme, Lena Horne and arranged music for James Brown for a concert at the Hollywood Bowl in L.A. that took place 3 months before he died. His approach was influenced by Todd Rundgren, Cannonball Adderley, Neil Young, Edgar Winter, Nelson Riddle, Charles Tolliver, Gene Ammons and Brian Wilson. His devotion to eclectic roots also includes classical composers such as Prokofiev and Shostakovich.
Special guests Grace Yoo and Ashle Worrick. The Todd Rundgren Global Tour Dancers / Singers.
Rundgren Radio with Danny Heaps the organizer of Todd's newest venture....his Rock-n-Roll Survival Camp. Todd Rundgren will be checking in as well!
Tim Butler is the bass player, and co-founder of the Psychedelic Furs. He is also the youngest of three brothers. His brother Richard, the eldest, is the lead singer of the Psychedelic Furs. Both brothers were also founding members of the alternative rock band, Love Spit Love.
Tim was largely responsible for The Furs bringing in Todd Rundgren to produce their hit album, Forever Now. In an interview in That Mag, Tim said, “My favorite album was the one Todd produced (Forever Now). If anyone could be called a musical genius, I think Todd is."
