Stevie Wonder has just finished a sell-out concert in Japan and after the applause has died down he asks the crowd if there’s anything they’d like him to play.
This little Japanese fella at the front is jumping up and down, waving his arms like a madman, and shouts “Play a jazz chord, play a jazz chord!” So Stevie belts out a 2 minute solo in F minor, and the crowd are in raptures.
“No, No!” shouts the little fella, “Play a jazz chord, play a jazz chord!” A little bemused, Stevie does a 3 minute impromptu in A major and gets the crowd rocking.
The little fella shouts again, “No, No, I want you to play a jazz chord!” Stevie gives in and says, “How does that go then?” To which he replies:
“A jazz chord to say I ruv you!”
Cheers Roy for that one 🙂
