Chesky Record Release Party

Latin music legends Candido Camero and Graciela are two of the last survivors of the Cubop movement of the late '40's, which fused Cuban rhythms with big band Jazz. Together these masters of the art bring a unique style and easy camaraderie to this new recording, highlighted by Graciela's call-and-response interplay with the band and Candido's subtle wizardry on the conga drums. What you have is inolvidable, unforgettable. Catch them live in a very rare appearance to launch their first CD together at New York City's Blue Note, 131 West 3rd Street on Monday, April 26 at 8 pm and 10 pm. Call (212) 475-0049 or visit www.bluenotejazz.com

Long before Celia Cruz was anointed the Queen of Salsa, Graciela was the First Lady of Afro-Cuban song. She is best known as the lead vocalist for Machito and his Afro-Cuban Jazz Orchestra from 1943 through the '70's.

Candido has collaborated with almost all of the great jazz masters, including Clark Terry, Dinah Washington, Charlie Parker, Duke Ellington, Lionel Hampton, Mongo Santamaria, Buddy Rich, Dizzy Gillespie and Tito Puente.

An ensemble of the most exciting Latin Jazz talent including Carlos “Patato" Valdes, Nicky Marrero, Eddie Peralta, Sonny Bravo and Nelson Gonzalez will join this unforgettable duo. Don't miss out on this very rare event!

Produced by Charles Carlini of Carlini Group www.carlinigroup.com
