I love soul music, especially Big Body Soul. One of my many many many favorite soul records of all-time is Sunny, originally written by Bobby Hebb after the death of one of his close friends and the assassination of John F. Kennedy. Personally this song is all about reflection -> optimism -> celebration.
There are many versions of this classic, but I was really excited to recently discover this version recorded live at the 25th annual JazzReggae Festival in LA by one of my favorites Lee Fields & the Expressions.
It’s summer time, Feel Good Ya’ll.
