    Clif Payne – Tribute to Stevie Wonder THIS SHOW WAS SOLD OUT!!! THANK YOU SO MUCH!!! “Clif Payne is a lush tenor with soaring melismas in his individual passages," Don Heckman Los Angeles Times Harlem-born, Clif Payne is earning renown as one of music’s most unique voices. Payne has appeared alongside Johnny Mathis, Bobby McFerrin, Dianne Reeves and Tower of Power. Payne effortlessly paints a colorful and adventurous soundscape where the hues of jazz, gospel and R&B converge. His mastery of lyrics, interpretation, improvisation, phrasing and tone highlight the technical aspects of his voice without sacrificing its emotional depth--all while taking us on melodic excursions of artistic expression. Clif Payne Celebrating the Songs of Stevie Wonder is a celebration of the musical world of Wonder.
