Ed Palermo Big Band @ Southpaw (feat. Napoleon Murphy Brock)

southpawposter

If you are a fan of Ed Palermo‘s arrangements of Frank Zappa‘s compositions, and if you are in the New York area on Wednesday, September 9th, 2009, join Ed Palermo and his special guest, Napoleon Murphy Brock (on vocals and sax) at the Southpaw.

Southpaw
125 Fifth Ave.
Park Slope, Brooklyn, NY 11217
718.230.0236

These shows, often made up of top New York musicians (those available for a given show), give each performance it’s own unique quality. Indeed, the presence of Napoleon Murphy Brock on sax is a real treat (I mean, Eric Dolphy may have inspired me to pick up the sax, but it was Brock that kept me playing due to his overwhelming enthusiasm and joy of the instrument).

At little taste of February 6th, 2009, Dix Hills Performing Arts Center performance, “Pojama People“:

    Thanks, UrbanG, for the info above. Ed & Band are worth the trip, but throw in Nappy and it’s becomes the place to be in New York that night.
    Ed seems to be my main source of “live” Zappa music lately. This will be my
    third time seeing Ed this summer alone! Am I becoming a Palermo groupie?!
    Too bad for Eddie I’m not a hot blonde with big boobs . . . of course the penis thing might get in the way. :)

    What are you talking about, Hugh?
    “Eddy Loves Frank”, not you!

    Let’s admit it, here and now, Hugh, we’ve both got “reed envy”!

    Eddy has a better chance with me, Frank can no longer return the love like I can!

    Ha! You nailed it! And if I WAS a real big-boobed blonde, I’d have penis AND reed envy! :)

    Well, there is the very slight chance that Mr. Palermo could indeed be a necrophiliac–though judging from what others have said about him–he is a man of true character and intentions who would never even think of such a hideous idea, let alone carry out such a monstrous deed! Sorry!
