Carlos Manuel "Charlie" Palmieri (November 21, 1927 – September 12, 1988) was a renowned bandleader and musical director of salsa music. He was known as the "Giant of the Keyboards". Palmieri's parents migrated to New York from Ponce, Puerto Rico in 1926 and settled down in the South Bronx where Palmieri was born. As a child, Palmieri taught himself to play the piano by ear. He attended the public school system. At age 7, his father enrolled him at The Juilliard School, where he took piano lessons
There, he and his elder brother, Charlie Palmieri, were born. He accompanied Charlie and participated in many talent contests when he was eight years ol. .Palmieri continued his education in the city's public school system where he was constantly exposed to music, specifically jazz. Together they were responsible for many of the 'head' arrangements, mambos and moñas that the band recorded. George Castro (flute), Manny Oquendo (bongó and timbales), Tommy López (conga) and Dave Pérez (bass) rounded out the group
Charlie Palmieri is an annoying Discos Embajador release of material from the Mardi Gras label, annoying because only two of only ten tracks are Palmieri. What you really have is a collection of five singles, although to be fair, the sound is so standardized that it is nonetheless cohesive as an album. Mardi Gras and La Playa completists will have to have it, but it is not an essential Charlie Palmieri recording.

Palmieri’s professional career as a pianist took off with various bands in the early 1950s including Eddie Forrester, Johnny Segui’s, and the popular Tito Rodriguez Orchestra. In 1961, Palmieri formed his own band, La Perfecta, which featured an unconventional front line of trombones rather than the trumpets customary in Latin orchestras. This created an innovative sound that mixed American jazz into Afro-Caribbean rhythms, surprising critics and fans alike. Palmieri disbanded La Perfecta in 1968 to pursue different musical endeavors, though he would return to the band’s music in the 2000s.
