Eddie Palmieri- Billie

The song is retired.

He's not a giant of Latin-American music. He's a giant of American music. On 2003's Ritmo Caliente, Palmieri touches on so many styles- from salsa to classical, and from jazz to son- that categories are meaningless. Palmieri still tours actively, including a date next week at the New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festival.
