The Music of Stevie Wonder show begins with one of the trademark funk tunes of the early ’70s, this arrangement opens with a powerful fanfare based on “Living for the City,” then launches into the familiar strains of Superstition complete with the signature horn riffs and driving rhythm. Written in a moderate Latin tempo, Don’t You Worry ‘Bout A Thing features the melody traded between various sections, cool harmonies, and a soaring final chorus with driving percussion. Great change of pace for drill teams or concert sets on the field. The show then segues into the popular ’70s hit Sir Duke which features one of the signature instrumental riffs from that era. Paul’s great-sounding arrangement provides a natural showcase for your mallet percussion section and fun for the rest of the band as well. The early hit Signed, Sealed, Delivered, I’m Yours by Stevie Wonder is still one of the best-known, most dynamic tunes that he ever recorded. This solidly scored arrangement is exuberant and fun for all and a great way to wrap up the production.
