Cindy's album will have "6-7 more vocal songs" in addition to the "Fun Party Splash" single you all loved. Carlos is reportedly playing on "almost all" of those, as well as appearing on some of the instrumental tracks. So I guess that we can expect him to play on at least a half dozen cuts. To what degree he'll be tempted to cut loose I guess we'll have to wait and see.
Cindy mentioned that all of the vocal tracks are done. It's actually a few of the instrumental songs that were awaiting final touches. I'd like to think those "final touches" might include a guest appearance by Wayne and/or Herbie, but nothing like that was actually hinted at.
No release date as I mentioned in the subject line, but I heard an interview Cindy conducted a while back where she stated that if the album didn't make it out by the end of the year, she was hoping to see it released by February 2018 at the latest. Which makes sense if Carlos is looking to have that "Africa Speaks" album out next May or so (again no confirmation of that, just speculation on my part based on how far along the sessions seem to be and the fact that Carlos is enthusiastic about the project and seems to love that mid-April to mid-May timeframe).
