COVERED: Stevie Wonder vs. Justin Horn

At times it seems fans and critics tend to forget Music Of My Mind when it comes to discussing some of Stevie Wonder’s best albums. They’ll often talk about “the holy trinity”, or the holy trinity plus Songs In The Key Of Life as a platform. When Music Of My Mind is mentioned, it at times shows that the person who suggests it is paying attention.

For jazz/pop vocalist Justin Horn, he decided to honor Music Of My Mind by paying homage to the album cover, right down to the items reflected in his sunglasses. Down side: Horn’s Hornology has no covers from Music Of My Mind. No “Evil”, no “Superwoman (Where Were You When I Needed You)”, not even a rendition of “Sweet Little Girl”. There is a cover of Wayne Shorter’s “Footprints”, but it would have been nice to have at least one Wonder cut on here, even as a secret bonus track os a track 0. The album cover tribute is a nice touch, though.
