Christmas Stream: Bunny Sigler-Little Drummer Boy

Bunny Sigler is one of those kings of R&B that makes his mark count whenever he gets into the studio. With the release of a Christmas album this year titled
When Your In Love At Christmas Time it shows his versatility.

The first single released from that album is the timeless classic "Little Drummer Boy." 

I like all kinds of music and have been open to different interpretations of well known songs over the years however this one really caught my ear. It is funky and rich with sound and rhythm. 

The talent of Mr. Sigler comes through with impact on this holiday treat bringing the spirit and meaning of the season right home to the heart. I have heard many different types of Christmas music in my day and I have to say that this "Little Drummer Boy" is a classic rendition the artist made all his own.

Give this alternative version of a classic song a chance to get you in the right mood to enjoy the Holidays!

More About Bunny Sigler:

http://www.bunnysigler.net

Bunny was born in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania on March 27, 1941. The industry gave him the nickname, “Mr. Emotion” after his heartfelt performances on stage.

After seeing Bunny perform at Atlantic City’s Ambassador Hotel, Independent Producers John Madara and Dave White signed him a deal that led to the release on Cameo of “Let The Good Times Roll” and “Feels So Good”. The groovy yet smooth tune reached 12 in the U.S. R&B Billboard charts, and his music career skyrocketed from there.

With the Philly soul sound so hot, Sigler got a chance to work with a number of acts as a writer and/or producer, including the Whispers, Ecstacy, Passion And Pain and Carl Carlton. He cut tracks for artists on Curtis Mayfield's Curtom label, including Mayfield himself ("Trippin' Out"), and made a duet album with Barbara Mason. In 1976, Sigler got Instant Funk an album deal with Gamble Huff's TSOP label.

Creating several hits over the span of his career that today's generation keep sampling, Bunny continues to write, produce and record new material. He is the co-writer of the song, “The Ruler's Back” which was an opening song for the Jay Z's album, "Blueprint". At 70 years old "there ain't no stopping us now" claims "Sigler"...

He's a living legend alright and a huge part of music history. Whether it's performing, writing or producing he gives it his all....

It's no wonder why the Industry has nicknamed him "Mr. Emotion."
