Taryn O’Flynn- Jazz History- Listening Review 6- Avant Garde Jazz 1990s Source Stevie Wonder - Higher Ground (Live at Java Jazz Festival 2012). Live at JIExpo Kemayoran, Jakarta, Indonesia, 4 March 2012. The version of this song can be found on the internet at http:// Review Wonder had quickly written the song during a whiff of whirlwind inspiration. He recorded all the vocals and played all the instruments on the finished track with Cecil and Robert Margouleff handling the synthesizer programming. The two would arrange all the keyboards in the studio in a circle and Wonder would walk from one to the other. "Higher Ground" went to number one R&B and number four pop in fall 1973. Though this song was originally written and performed in 1973, since then there have been hundreds of versions of this song and many different musical influences- this one in particular has a significant modern jazz feel. Timing break down, chorus by chorus 00:00 Song begins with a full band playing and Stevie’s vocals 00:41

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
