There's so much amazing material penned by Stevie Wonder, so here we go again with the third part of our birthday special. After a dive in renditions from the '70s during part one and two, here we mix things up with a combination of contemporary stunners, like the unique take of Alicia Hall Moran on "Signed, Sealed, Delivered" or the incandescent rendition of "Too High" by Chris Hunter, with classics like Roland Kirk's version of "Ma Cherie Amour" or Toots Thielemans'"You've Got It Bad Girl." The cherry on the cake: Stevie's own playing under the pseudonym of Eivets Rednow (Stevie Wonder backwards), aged 18, and as guest of Herbie Hancock on "St. Louis Blues."

Happy listening!
