15 December: Sugar Chile Robinson: Christmas Boogie

Published December 15, 2019

I was going to post one of my bizarre Christmas offerings today, but I thought better of it. "It's Sunday, after all, so give the people something that's good-good instead of bad-good." Ergo, 'Christmas Boogie' by Sugar Chile Robinson.

Eleven years old when this was recorded in 1950, Frank "Sugar Chile Robinson" was, despite his tender age, an accomplished singer and pianist who won a talent contest at age three and scored a number 4 R&B hit with 'Numbers Boogie' in 1949. He is still around today.

This recording always brings a smile to my face. 10 out of 10 for energy and charm.

Listen here.
