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.
