Natalie Cole Cancels Wednesday's Hollywood Bowl Appearance with Winton Marsalis, Replaced by ... Willie Nelson?

Hot on the heels of last week's Youssou N'Dour cancellation comes this news from the Hollywood Bowl that Natalie Cole is canceling her guest appearance this Wednesday, July 9 with Winton Marsalis and the Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra. And, oddly, her replacement is Willie Nelson.

Or, rather, not that oddly. Last year Nelson and Marsalis teamed for a two night stand at Lincoln Center and recorded the shows. The result of that collaboration, Two Men With The Blues , has received praise far and wide. In fact, this could be a golden opportunity to catch a memorable, unexpected little treat.
