The Funky Little Drummer Boy

A few days ago I helped you get your holiday season off to a swingin’ start with a little taste of Lou Rawls.  Here’s another serving.

It’s Lou’s funky rendition of the Little Drummer Boy.  In my multidenominational house, this number always kicks off the holiday season.   I love the sparse bass and harmonica in the opening.  And check out Lou—surely one of the most soulful, evocative voices ever to draw a breath.
