The album showcases the 12-year-old Wonder’s talents as a composer and instrumentalist and is one of two Wonder studio albums on which he does not sing (the other being Eivets Rednow); he is featured on percussion, the keyboard, and the harmonica. Wonder’s mentors Clarence Paul and Henry Cosby wrote and produced the material on The Jazz Soul of Little Stevie Wonder, with the 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.
