AND A SUCCESSFUL ONE:

Look What's Growing in Spanish Harlem (Marc Silver, 12/18/07, NPR.org)

The album called The Harlem Experiment lives up to its name, with a sometimes-unexpected match of artists and songs to evoke the musical hotbed of New York's famously diverse neighborhood. But perhaps its biggest experiment of all was taking a cute pop tune from the '60s called "Spanish Harlem" and asking a white British singer to perform it, with only a 1932 vintage guitar as backup.
