Jazz at Lincoln Center is holding a special event in Bridgehampton this summer. From Havana to the Hamptons, taking place on Friday, August 14th, will celebrate Live in Cuba, which is the first album release of the newly formed Blue Engine Records.

Co-chairs Greg Ammon and Valentino D. Carlotti, as well as Jazz at Lincoln Center's Rhythm Club and Swing! Committee are co-hosting the evening, which will feature a cocktail party with live music from critically acclaimed Afro-Cuban percussionist Pedrito Martinez and a VIP seated dinner.

"I am thrilled to co-host an event celebrating the release of the first album from Jazz at Lincoln Center's archive and music library, named in honor of my father," Ammon said. "This event also allows us to introduce new friends to jazz in support of the incredible performances and education programs produced by Jazz at Lincoln Center each year."

Jazz at Lincoln Center is dedicated to expanding the global community of jazz through performance, education and advocacy. Blue Engine Records is a new initiative by Jazz at Lincoln Center to release studio and live recordings. It will also release recordings from Jazz at Lincoln Center's performance history, dating back to 1987.

Proceeds from this event will benefit the performances and education programs that Jazz at Lincoln Center provides.
