Celia Cruz and Friends: A Night of Salsa is a live album by Cuban salsa musician Celia Cruz. The album was recorded during a concert on May 12, 1999 in Hartford, Connecticut which was broadcast by PBS. Among the participants of the concert were Tito Puente, Johnny Pacheco, La India, and Isidro Infante.

Celia Cruz had a brilliant and successful music career in her native Cuba, where her extraordinary vocal talent and enormous popularity earned her the nickname "The Guarechera of Cuba." Her transcendence, however, masked an even greater ambition upon her arrival to the United States. Beginning a new phase of her career, joining the Fania Family, and linking her name to the great artists of the label, she made her mark and earned herself a new title: "The Queen of Salsa." Recorded in Hartford, CT on May 12, 1999 with the help of Tito Puente, Johnny Pacheco, La India, and Isidro Infante & the RMM Orchestra, Cruz prances her way through an assortment of career favorites like "Mi Vida Es Cantar" and "Azucar Negra" and more traditional Latin classics like "Guantanamera."
