Charlie Palmieri : Either You Have It or You Don't

Put the needle on the spot, let it go, sit down, relax and watch the women fill the dancefloor... Always a pleasure indeed !
Charlie Palmieri, also known as "The Giant of the Keyboards" was a renowned salsa master.
In October 1947, Tito Puente, the musical director of the Fernando Alvarez Band, was impressed with Palmieri and hired him to play for his band at the Copacabana Club; here he played with Tito until 1953 and during the 1950s he played with various bands.
In 1967 he scored a hit with "Either You Have It or You Don't"
