Stevie Wonder is playing his first gig in Melbourne and the place is absolutely packed to the rafters. In a bid to break the ice with his new audience, he asks if anyone would like him to play a request. The Lord Mayor, John So, jumps out of his seat in the front row and shouts, "Play a jazz chord! Play a jazz chord!" Amazed that this guy knows the jazz influences in Stevie's varied career, the blind muso starts to play an E minor scale and then goes into a difficult jazz melody for about ten minutes. When he finishes the whole place goes wild. The Lord Mayor jumps up again and shouts: "No, no, play a jazz chord, play a jazz chord." A bit cheesed off by this, Stevie, being the professional that he is, dives straight into a jazz improvisation with his band around the B flat minor chord and really tears the place apart. The crowd goes wild again, but the Lord Mayor jumps up again, screaming, "Play a jazz chord, play a jazz chord." Well & truly cheesed off that this little guy doesn't seem to appreciate his playing ability, Stevie says to him from the stage, "OK shortie, you get up here and do it." John So climbs up on the stage, takes hold of the microphone and starts to sing.... "A jazz chord to shay I ruv you"
