Sting Takes Over Famed Blue Note Jazz Club in NYC to Present Shaggy Doing Sensational Sinatra
Last night Sting, one of the biggest rock stars on the planet,
took over the famed Blue Note jazz club in Greenwich Village.
The occasion? To present his pal, Shaggy, the great reggae star,
singing Frank Sinatra songs with a jazz- reggae beat and rich,
brassy horns that would make Memphis musicians cry.
Shaggy’s “Com Fly Wid Mi.” On a break from touring in Oslo,
Sting heard Shaggy idly singing along to a Frank Sinatra
CD and came up with the idea to produce a whole album.
Sounds crazy but it works.
