This song, recorded in 1977 by Stevie Wonder, would be a high energy addition to any concert (add instruments for even more energy). There is a great scat section for vocalists to mimic the instruments. It would be a great opportunity to discuss the musical giants mentioned in the song (Count Basie, Glenn Miller, Louis Armstrong, Ella Fitzgerald, and Duke Ellington) and talk about their significance and influence on the life of a young Stevie Wonder growing up in the 1950s and 1960s.
