Welcome back to the second installment of the week dedicated to Stevie Wonder.
Let's go back to the 1970s, arguably the most prolific period in Stevie Wonder's artistic career, despite the serious car accident he was involved in shortly after the release of "Innervisions" in 1973. As his international recognition grew, collaborations with world-renowned musicians and artists such as Jeff Beck and David Sanborn multiplied. In particular, they appeared on "Talking Book" (1972), a hugely successful album that includes the famous "Superstition." In addition to studio work, Wonder consistently engaged in significant live performances, touring globally alongside artists of the caliber of Elton John and the Rolling Stones.
The 1970s brought Stevie Wonder greater creative freedom, culminating in his most celebrated album, "Songs In The Key Of Life." It's not easy to put into words the compositional and stylistic variety, the quantity (and quality) of musical ideas present on the album, and its influence on artists seemingly distant from Wonder ("Wild Wild West" by Will Smith, does it sound vaguely familiar?).
As a testament to Stevie Wonder's immense artistic influence, we present a song that you might have heard performed by another group. Can you tell which one?
