Stevie Wonder is playing a gig in Tokyo…

He’s just finished playing his Seventies classic Sir Duke. The crowd is
still going wild when a young Japanese man at the front says, “Stevie
Wonder, you play a jazz chord, you play a jazz chord!”

So Stevie plays an F# minor on his keyboard and goes off on a jazz riff.

The Japanese man says, “No Stevie Wonder, you play a jazz chord!” So
Stevie tries an A and off he goes with the band on this amazing
improvised moment.

When he’s finished, the lad says, “No Stevie, a jazz chord, a jazz
chord!”

By now old Stevie is a little confused. “What do you mean, play a jazz
chord? I’ve just done 2 for you..?” he says to the fan.

“But it best song of Stevie Wonder! It bery famous!” comes the reply.

“Ok, well how does it go then?”, enquires the blind musical genius. The
young Japanese man clears his throat and starts to sing:

“A jazz chord…………..to say, I ruv you…”
