We attended. We have our fun and relaxing the night with white wine. We even have our fun photo at the KKJF photobooth. Eventhough, we came a little bit late, still we managed to enjoy the later band that night. Our personal favourite that night would be Juzzie Smith, he was playing as the one band show. Totally awesome. We able to get hs autograph on his CD and take picture.

Another one of that fascinates me is Mariko (Jazz performer from Japan). She sang two songs that night, the first one is about an Orang Hutan that was named after her. Then, the second song " Heroes" is a song dedicated to Malaysian for their help and support to Japan after the Tsunami's. Her performance also complimented by a violinist (a japanese guy as well, but i didnt managed to catch his name..)

It soooo 1 Malaysia performance...joget, chinese dance, the indian dance..nevertheless our very own traditional dance...Sumazau!!

To those whom into Jazz Music or about to get into them, feel free to join the event next year! dont be mistaken ya..im not the organizer (which in this case, it was the KK Rotary Club), and am not gaining any benefits whatsoever. Simply being KK people enjoying the perks that we have in Sabah. As Sabahan, we should support our local tourism kan.. where else is better than here? atas pokok pun atas pokok la...(Haha!!)
