Why Stevie Wonder?

Stevie Wonder (born Stevland Hardaway Morris in Michigan on May 13, 1950) is a multiple-award-winning singer/songwriter who signed with Motown at the age of eleven and has been performing and recording ever since. But it was his ability to play the chromatic harmonica that first garnered notoriety for the blind twelve-year-old Stevie. The tune was an instrumental called “Fingertips,” and it hit number one on the charts. Stevie Wonder remains one of the harmonica giants of our time.

    In my opinion, Stevie Wonder is at the top of the food chain of Harmonica players. Some of these players only play the harmonica but Stevie plays multiple instruments so if he only played the harmonica, there is no telling how much better he would be. He also influenced some of these players like Toots. Toots has even said in “Horn Player” magazine , that he practices to Stevie’s work on the harmonica.

    Little Stevie Wonder should be somewhere close to #1 in harmonica longevity, ability, creativity, soulfulness, musicianship, song writing, records sold, tickets sold, etc.
    #43 is embarrassing for Stevie Wonder.

    No harmonica player has ever played the “Hohner 64″ Like this guy. He swings like a beast and has the best tone. It’s almost like that instrument was built for him. Best Harmonica solo in history:”I was Made To Love Her” by SW
