Every now and then you have this type of convergence in the universe where you have a number of fantastic artists all born on the same day. I thought it might be fun to imagine what kind of performance or jam session it would be if we could get Frank Sinatra, Joe Williams, Dionne Warwick and Sheila E. together. But since we can’t I figured we could do the next best thing. Enjoy!
