Wicked, i haven't heard the album yet but i hope they recorded a reggae version of one of his tracks.
Looking forward to it!
I'm a fan of Nat King Cole, especially his Spanish albums! :D I think it's great that contemporary artists have joined forces in producing this tribute album. I've viewed the first 2 podcasts and am looking forward to listening to the album.
