Adela Dalto was born in Texas to Mexican parents, and grew up in Gary, Indiana. She wed the late Latin jazz pianist Jorge Dalto, and has claimed her own ground as a powerful R&B and jazz vocalist. Having honed her skills through years of performing in small New York clubs, her rise to international stardom was boosted by her involvement with her husband's group, the InterAmerican Band. She was featured soloist on the tune "Ease My Pain," from the group's 1985 album, Urban Oasis. Dalto has performed with such top-ranked New York-based Latin musicians as Jerry Gonzalez, Hilton Ruiz, and Mauricio Smith's Latin Jazz Orchestra, and was a featured vocalist with Mario Bauza's AfroCuban Orchestra and Carlos "Patato" Valdes's AfroJazzia Ensemble. She continues to perform with her own band at such New York nightspots as the Blue Note, S.O.B.'s and Birdland. ~ Craig Harris
