A Conversation for Stevie Wonder
Mu Beta Started conversation Jan 15, 2005
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.

I think on some of his recordings he played all the instruments including drums

If he can play that wel,l I wouldn't complain about it
There is something special about the way his recordings sound.
You can be sure that when he performed on stage
He didn't play all the instruments himself.
