    I never actually learned to play very well
    I saw part of it. Great band indeed. I liked the close shots of Stevie Wonder’s well-worn keyboard gear. Trusted tools for a master craftsman, not all shiny and new for TV.

    And the tribute section at the end did include Jamerson and Babbitt, though without reference to their (and the other Funk Bros') critical contributions to The Sound Of Young America.

    Much better than that earlier one where Jamerson reportedly had to buy a scalped ticket to get in...
