Genius, musical or otherwise does exist yet is hard to define. One man for whom the term is appropriate is Stevie Wonder. A child protégé and teenage pop star and an adult creator of some of the most expansive and down right funky music ever made. Recognised as the natural heir to Ray Charles, Stevie’s early records such as Finger tips, Uptight, I was made to Love her, For once in my life and Signed Sealed Delivered still burst with a joyful Soulful energy.
Established as a star Little Stevie became a true artiste with the release of Music of my mind, Talking Book, Innervisions, Fulfillingness' First Finale, and Songs in the key of life.
Hotter than July is often overlooked but just look at some of the hits that came from it; Master Blaster (Jammin), I aint gonna stand for it, and Happy birthday.
Adroit at working with other artists such as The Trammps, Elton John, Sting, Lenny Kravitz, Eurythmics, BB King, Michael Jackson and Gladys Knight.
An activist, spokesperson, and an inspiration during hard times, Stevie’s output may have diminished quality wise but he still gives live performances that show his craft to the fullest.
For the real Wonder of Stevie check out YouTube ‘Stevie Wonder/ Sesame Street/ Superstition’. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_ul7X5js1vE
