Stevie Wonder's music has inspired countless musicians. Included among them are B3 player Chris Foreman, guitarist Bobby Broom and drummer Greg Rockingham, a.k.a. the Deep Blue Organ Trio. On Wonderful!, the threesome offer a fresh take on the soul-funk-pop icon's songbook.
Foreman and Rockingham start things rolling on "Tell Me Something Good," with Broom comping behind them. The guitarist then unleashed an astringent solo, exploring the full range of his instrument. Broom takes first turn in the spotlight on "Golden Lady," supported by Rockingham's toms. But the trio's exceptional interplay is most engaging on a swinging "If You Really Love Me." Besides its indelible tunes, Wonderful! truly emphasizes these empathetic musicians' one-for-all attitude.
