I know I say this all the time, but this footage of Stevie Wonder playing 'Living for the City' with TONTO really is one of the coolest things I've ever seen. TONTO was two guys, one British and one American, with a vast polyphonic analog synth built out of Moog, Serge and Arp components. So here's Stevie jamming with Robert and Malcolm tweaking the machine in the background looking like a biker gang made up of mad scientists. And they're doing it in Jimi Hendrix's Electric Lady studios. Wow. If that's not enough, there's also this extraordinary clip, which I won't even try to describe.
Meanwhile, in what could be a slight anti-climax, TONTO are performing this weekend at the splendid Big Chill Festival in Herefordshire. Malcolm Cecil is "creating a 'Virtual TONTO' and will play live over pre recorded backing tracks." Mr Wonder is not expected to appear. (via MatrixSynth here and here)
