Chops monster Eddy Palermo
Here's another player few know about. Italian guitarist Eddy Palermo is a real chops monster though. His style is very in-your-face and some state he has a tendency to overplay but I must admit ... I just love that kind of playing. Exciting stuff. I could not find much info about him on the internet except that he is teaching at a music school somewhere in Italy. Some stuff in Italian but I can't read that. Both his single line playing and chordal chops are impressive and strongly rooted in the bop tradition. So I must award him the Dutchbopper Seal of Approval. He has several albums out too. Some are on Spotify. Under the videos I added a playlist of his 2010 Album "Eddy Palermo Trio" which is very nice. He is so tearing it up on the 4th track "I Love You" Check him out!
By the way, pretty anoying how the jazz singer does not even let him finish his solo in the first vid ...
