Stevie Wonder: Talking Book (Motown)
John Swenson, The Village Voice, 25 January 1973
STEVIE WONDER possesses a unique vision that has enabled him to encompass a wide range of influences without being controlled by any of them. Coming out of an R&B tradition, Stevie has incorporated elements of jazz, folk, rock, and electronic music into his style. He knows no boundaries between genres, for he interprets musical impressions in pure forms, unprejudiced by the easy definitions sight-controlled, print-oriented reality imposes on music.
