Here I am playing my own improvisational version (actually 2 versions) of the popular song "Sunny" originally written and recorded by American singer songwriter Bobby Hebb in 1966.
"Sunny" has been recorded by, among others, Pat Martino & John Scofield with Joey Defrancesco, Boney M, Cher, Georgie Fame, Johnny Rivers, Stevie Wonder, Frank Sinatra with Duke Ellington, Ella Fitzgerald, the Electric Flag, The Four Seasons, the Four Tops, Wilson Pickett, Les McCann, Dusty Springfield, and The Alex Trio featuring David Wise. One cover, a disco version called "Sunny '76" was a hit for Hebb in that year.
Bobby Hebb recorded "Sunny" in New York City, which resulted in a tour with The Beatles for Hebb. It is one of the most covered popular songs, with hundreds of versions released.
This video was recorded March 2008 in Davis, California. At about 2:40 in the video you should notice a profound change in the rhythm and style of playing. I hope you enjoy it and thank you kindly for your positive comments.
