Cool Uncle Album Stream

CoolUncle NPR is streaming the full-length Cool Uncle (Bobby Caldwell and Jack Splash) album and you can listen to all 15-songs and hear their 1978 meets 2015 groove. The collaboration is the result of Caldwell’s wife reaching out to Splash  via social media after she heard that he wanted to work with her husband. Cool Uncle is a continuation of Caldwell’s classic style with modern additions that compliment his sound instead of drowning him in an attempt to mimic contemporary artists.
