16 August 1922, Cleveland, Ohio, USA, d. 16 May 1981. A noted pianist, arranger and producer, Freeman enjoyed a series of minor hits during the late 50s and early 60s. His chart entries included ‘Dumplins’ (1957) and ‘Indian Love Call’ (1959), but his biggest success came with a cover version of Bill Justis’ smash ‘Raunchy’. Although the original reached the US Top 3, Freeman’s interpretation peaked at number 12. He recorded as B. Bumble And The Stingers on all of this act’s releases, bar ‘Nut Rocker’, before embarking on a successful session career. Freeman appeared on material by Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin and Connie Francis, and later became musical director with the Reprise Records label, a post he held for 10 years. Freeman retired during the 70s and died as the result of a heart attack.
