He is primarily known as a pianist, but Stevie Wonder is possibly one of the best harmonica players this planet has produced. He's got a lovely stringent tone, and beautiful improvisational technique (harmonicas are easy to learn, but hard to improvise on well). It's oft overlooked in his repertoire, but compare him to Dylan or Alanis Morrissette (both of whom sound like they are playing the harmonica through a different orifice), and you'll see what I mean.

If he can play that wel,l I wouldn't complain about it
There is something special about the way his recordings sound.
and

You can be sure that when he performed on stage

He didn't play all the instruments himself.
