Stevie Wonder Beat Club Germany 1974

I stumbled onto this video on the MyFunk website. It's a mind blower as the first two numbers are completely original improvisations and unfamiliar (to me at least). The first is a wonderful gospel tinged piece, and then it gets crazy with a very European sounding jazz fusion blow out. At other times it's hilarious, like at 11:38 when the Les Paul wielding guitarist who looks like a hybrid Slash/goth/glam rocker pulls out the maracas for "Don't you worry about a thing." Awesome grooves, and a good way to spend 30 minutes.
