Marvin Gaye Vs. Erik Rico


We ♥  Erik Rico.  As a veteran musician, producer, writer, composer and arranger this cat has been deep in the soul of music for over 10 years working alongside Elton John, Gene Simmons and Mariah Carey to name a few.  We’ve been waiting patiently for Mr. Rico’s Reworks Project (Out on LifeNotes Music) with his reinterpretations of inspirational musicians and it is finally upon us!  Have a listen to Erik Rico’s interpretation of Marvin Gaye’s “Want You”.
