Our Free Download this month is a timeless treat, one of the most elegant Latin jazz pieces ever recorded. It arrives, unsurprisingly, courtesy of keyboardist, composer and Fania resident genius - Mr. Eddie Palmieri. Palmieri was 34 years old when he released the 1970 album Superimposition, combining raucous salsa jams with silky jazz instrumentals. His "Chocolate Ice Cream" took Latin jazz to its absolute apex, and much of the track's allure lies in the restrained funk that Palmieri employs on his percussive piano patterns. He would continue exploring jazz in the following decades - but this was one of the highest moments of his artistic quest. Now free, as a digital download. Enjoy.
