Song of the Day: Sir Duke
Today’s song is Sir Duke by Stevie Wonder.
Funk and Progressive Soul (though some claim it’s R&B).
Can’t ever go wrong with this man’s exceptional work.
The song is a beautiful tribute to Duke Ellington.
It’s charming, energized, and hooks you straight way with that thumping pace and the brass intro.
It’s whimsical and measured. There is a passion behind it makes it really shine.
Wonder knew exactly how to keep the tone of this piece directed.
A soft grin dawns on my face whenever this comes on.
When there is legitimate talent that was honed into precise skill, one has to respect it.
