West African pop vocalist Youssou N'Dour has a lot of friends in high places. The Senegalese singer guests solo with Herbie Hancock and others at this afternoon's edition of the "Jazzvisions" series at the Wiltern Theatre. But N'Dour has made even greater strides in the pop world this year by appearing on Top 10 albums by Paul Simon and Peter Gabriel. He returns to Los Angeles Monday and Tuesday with his Super Etoile du Dakar band as the opening act at Gabriel's Forum concerts.
