In their new album “We Wonder”, Italian trumpeter Fabrizio Bosso and his quartet pay tribute to Stevie Wonder’s musical genius. The energy and vitality that characterize Stevie Wonder’s unique style, the expressive power of his most famous ballads, combined with Fabrizio Bosso’s technique and lyricism, the carefully designed arrangements and each of the artists’ musical personalities, all make for a unique and incomparable album. The album’s tracklisting brings together nine of Stevie Wonder’s most significant songs, selected from his extensive repertoire that spans a period ranging from the late 1960s to his last release in 2004: “Another Star”, “Isn’t She Lovely”, “My Cherie Amour”, but also “Sir Duke” and “Moon Blue” are just some of the songs featured in the album’s tracklisting.
The album also features “Overjoyed”, already pre-released as a single on all digital platforms in May. The choice was not random, as the song is also about dreams coming true. It is, in fact, performed by an “overjoyed” Fabrizio Bosso, not only because he interprets one of Wonder’s most famous hits (the American musician has been Bosso’s idol ever since he started playing the trumpet), but also because, with this new project, Bosso reasserts the choice he made when he was little more than a teenager: to become a musician. Fabrizio Bosso’s trumpet, Julian Oliver Mazzariello’s keyboards, Jacopo Ferrazza’s bass and double bass, Nicola Angelucci’s drums, together with special guest Nico Gori’s clarinet and tenor sax, are the ultimate protagonists of this tribute to one of the most iconic American musicians.
