Recorded LIVE at Frederick P. Rose Hall, CD Features Guest Vocalists Herman Olivera and Claudia Acuña

On June 28 Palmetto Records will release Una Noche Inolvidable ( An Unforgettable Night ), a live recording of Jazz at Lincoln Center 's renowned Afro-Latin Jazz Orchestra with leader Arturo O'Farrill. Una Noche Inolvidable ( An Unforgettable Night ) was recorded on January 28, 2005 , during the inaugural season at Jazz at Lincoln Center 's new home, Frederick P. Rose Hall.

For this musical presentation, O'Farrill invited two noted vocalists in the Afro-Latin tradition, Herman Olivera and Claudia Acuña , to join the big band. From Newark , New Jersey , Olivera was part of the band, Conjunto Libre and has worked with Tito Puente and Eddie Palmieri. From Chile , Acuña regularly performed in Santiago 's jazz clubs honing her individual style before moving to the U.S. and releasing CDs on Verve and MAXJAZZ.

The critically acclaimed orchestra displays its considerable energy and talent on Una Noche Inolvidable and will showcase the music live on upcoming engagements across the U.S, including in Cerritos , California and Eugene , Oregon . Their tour culminates in January 2006 with performances at Frederick P. Rose Hall in New York City .

Music Director Arturo O'Farrill believes strongly in the mission of the ALJO: “ Our mission is to honor great works from Latin jazz masters, commission a new body of work for this genre and educate listeners on the impact of Afro Latin rhythms on jazz. We are deeply committed to groove and clavé so get ready to swing hard!”

Palmetto Records believes it is important to present the tradition and future of jazz and with that mission, became a partner to Jazz at Lincoln Center to release the music of their active and popular orchestras. Una Noche Inolvidable is the second release in the Jazz at Lincoln Center series. The first was A Love Supreme by Lincoln Center Jazz Orchestra with Wynton Marsalis.

Jazz at Lincoln Center 's Artistic Director, Wynton Marsalis adds: “ We have great respect for the cultural legacy of Latin American composers like Chico O'Farrill, Mario Bauza and Chano Pozo. The ALJO is comprised of the cream of the crop of today's Latin jazz musicians who can do artistic justice to this musical legacy.
