View So Tender: Wonder Revisited, Vol. 1by The Joe Gilman Trio
The Joe Gilman Trio, which had recently interpreted a set of music by Dave Brubeck, recorded 28 Stevie Wonder tunes in a 13-hour period during June 10 and 11, 2004. Wonder's music is mostly pretty adaptable to jazz, particularly the nine selections included on this first volume. "Don't You Worry 'Bout a Thing" has become a minor jazz standard, although most of the other songs have rarely been heard in this context. Alternating moods, tempos, and grooves, the trio makes it sound as if Stevie Wonder had written these songs for this setting, successfully transforming Wonder's music into creative jazz. Well worth checking out.
