For in the world makin' me a better man,
An' every day I want to get on my camel an' ride

Nothin' to do, sit around groovin' with you,
And I say it 'cause I love having you around,

...when she's messing around)

Summer Soft: belleza natural

Summer Soft; belleza natural
Cuando el calor aprieta y buscas una sombra donde poderte cobijar de las altas temperaturas, siempre me vienen a la cabeza un álbum de Stevie y unas cuantas canciones. El álbum corresponde a sus inicios en la década de los 80 marcada por la búsqueda de sonidos más comerciales. Se trata de "Hotter Than July" -"más caluroso que julio" en su traducción en español-, un disco con grandes canciones que han seguido formando parte del repertorio en directo de Stevie Wonder como la gran balada "Lately", el homenaje a Martin Luther King y siempre comodín en los cumpleaños "Happy Birthday", y la refrescante a ritmo de reggae "Master Blaster (Jammin')".

Pero hay otras composiciones de Stevie que tambien me vienen a la cabeza. Algunas me acercan a sus comienzos musicales -ya sin la coletilla "little Stevie"- en los años 60. Son "Beyond The Sea" o "Castles In The Sand" pertenecientes a su álbum "Stevie At The Beach". Otras en cambio pertenecen a su periodo más extraordinario en creatividad y probablemente a su álbum más sobresaliente y ambicioso, "Songs In The Key Of Life".
Dentro de ese maravilloso e increible álbum, se encontraba "Summer Soft". Una oda al verano en forma de canción de una belleza celestial, con una sofisticada y brillante melodía, una instrumentación simplemente maravillosa, y la sensibilidad vocal sólo a la altura de un genio como Stevie Wonder. Su letra atrapa lo bello de la naturaleza, y a la vez la tristeza por la pérdida de las relaciones personales.

Cuenta con Ben Bridges a la guitarra rítmica, Ronnie Foster al órgano, Larry "Nastyee" Latimer a la percusión y como es habitual, a Stevie tocando la gran mayoría de los instrumentos, dando forma a una de las 21 joyas que contiene ese álbum de mediados de los 70. Una joya de textura y belleza natural que emociona y conmueve sólo con escuchar sus primeros acordes.
