Bernard Purdie Re-records SUNNY 47 years after the Bobby Hebb Demo Tape was made - Chihiro Yamanaka 2015 rendition

Chihiro Yamanaka, the renowned pianist, tracks "Sunny," the twelfth selection on her new CD, Reminisce.

This is an historical achievement as the rich and wonderful version has Bernard Purdie, the man who played the drums on the 1965 demo version with bassist Ben Tucker and singer/guitarist/composer Robert "Bobby" Hebb. 47 years later, Pretty Purdie records this spectacular Bobby Hebb song again.
