O’s Notes: The classic R&B tunes of Stevie Wonder are an excellent source of program material. Visions includes ten Wonder classics rearranged by drummer Yoron Israel with lots of jazzy improvisation. He deploys a fine team of musicians to perform centered around pianist Lazlo Gardony, saxophonist Lance Bryant and bassist Ron Mahdi. The arrangements are distinct but not too distant rendering fresh versions of “Another Star”, “Contusion”, “Visions” and “Creepin'” that should make Stevie proud.
