2018 marked he launch of Uprising Music NYC, an artist advocacy group and record label headed up by family and friends of Mr. Eddie Palmieri. With a solid community of artists in Latin Jazz and beyond, Uprising brings a wide roster of talent to the world. First up: Mr. Alex Conde, a pedigreed Spanish Flamenco and Jazz pianist who seeks to merge the elements of Flamenco, Afro-Cuban, and American Jazz forms. His new album, Origins, features Luques Curtis, Marcus Gilmore, Conrad Herwig, Brian Lynch, and more, and it is a delicate expression of his vision, conjuring images of a time past with a subtle dramatic edge. Origins sets the tone for the quality we can expect from Uprising Music - stay tuned.
