Yonnet Joins Chappelle for 4 nights of Comedy and Music at SFJAZZ

SOLD OUT! Hot ticket! Dave Chappelle + Frederic Yonnet = music and comedy to SFJazz. Several other special guests you won’t wanna miss.
————
For his debut comedic performance at the SFJAZZ Center, Dave Chappelle appropriately combines his greatest love, stand-up comedy with his second love, music. The connection between improvisation and timing will be on full display as Chappelle is joined by several special musical guests, including urban jazz harmonicist Frédéric Yonnet.

Heir to the throne vacated by legends Richard Pryor and George Carlin, Chappelle spring-boarded to household name status through his smash Comedy Central series Chappelle’s Show. His 2006 concert film, Dave Chappelle’s Block Party, was a chronicle of the comic’s spontaneous and inspiring event in a Brooklyn neighborhood that featured his outrageous comedy and an incredible procession of musical talent. As Chappelle noted in the film, “Every comic wants to be a musician. Every musician thinks they’re funny.” For four nights, SFJAZZ will be the crossroad for both.
— with David Chappelle.

WHEN: Thursday-Sunday, January 30-February 2, 2014

WHERE: SFJAZZ Center, 201 Franklin (at Fell), San Francisco, CA
TIX: $55

Stevie Wonder Includes Yonnet in 1st Ever Live Performance of Album, “Songs in Key of Life”

Stevie Wonder Includes Yonnet in 1st Ever Live Performance of Album, “Songs in Key of Life”

Stevie Wonder performs his landmark 1976 album “Songs in the Key of Life” in its entirety for the first time ever as part of his annual House Full of Toys benefit concert in Los Angeles, CA at Nokia Theater, on December 21st.

“We’re going to get some of the original musicians, some of the singers, as well as some of the newer contemporary musicians and singers of the day to be a part of this,” says Wonder. Yonnet is one of several guest scheduled to perform.

Released in 1976, Songs in the Key of Life was the #2 bestselling album of 1977 in part; songs like “Village Ghettoland” and “Have a Talk With God,” which addressed spirituality and urban life, made it more than a chart-topper. It’s the most influential album of Wonder’s career, and its power has only grown over the decades with artists as diverse as Mariah Carey, India Arie, and Mary J. Blige citing it as an inspiration. Coolio’s biggest hit, 1995′s “Gangster’s Paradise,” was built around a sample from the album’s eighth track, “Pastime Paradise.”

Every year, Wonder shows his love by hosting a concert that collects and distributes toys for families in need while benefitting the Junior Blind of America, West Angeles Church of God and Christ, and other charities including foster care organizations and hospitals.
