A musical update from Japan

From an e-mail:

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, shouting and waving his arms like a madman and Stevie asks him what he'd like him to play.

The Jap shouts "Play a jazz chord, play a jazz chord" so Stevie belts out a 2 minute solo in F minor on his piano and the crowd are in raptures. "No, No" he shouts "play a jazz chord, play a jazz chord." A little bit bemused Stevie does a 3 minute impromptu in A major and gets the crowd rocking. The little fella shouts "No, No, I want you toplay a jazz chord." Stevie gives in and says "how does that go then?" To which he replies.
