Stevie Wonder: Radio City Music Hall, New York

Lloyd Bradley, MOJO, March 1995

WHEN STEVIE WONDER EASES INTO 'YOU AND I', ACCOMPANIED only by his acoustic grand piano, the whole auditorium goes quiet. Not just silent, like nobody's making any noise, but the kind of sharp, crystal quiet that doesn't merely transmit the song but seems somehow to polish it up.

Total word count of piece: 1812
