Malcolm Cecil

Malcolm Cecil died recently aged 84. Formerly a jazz bass player, he co-created TONTO with Robert Margouleff. Tonto – The Original New Timbral Orchestra – was a groundbreaking system of interlinked synthesisers used on Stevie Wonder albums including Music of My Mind, Talking Book, Innervisions & Fulfillingness’ First Finale

It’s hard to overstate the importance of what Cecil & Margouleff achieved, both on a technical level and the impact on popular music through Stevie Wonder’s greatest work
