Stevie Wonder Releases The Jazz Soul of Little Stevie
The Jazz Soul of Little Stevie is the 1962 debut album by Stevie Wonder (then billed as "Little Stevie Wonder") on the Tamla (Motown) label.
The LP showcases the twelve-year-old Wonder's talents as a singer, songwriter, and instrumentalist. Wonder's mentors Clarence Paul and Henry Cosby wrote and produced the material on The Jazz Soul of Little Stevie Wonder, with young Wonder himself also co-writing two of the compositions. The original studio version of "Fingertips" is included on the album; a live version would become Wonder's first hit single.
