KK Jazz Festival 2010

Hi Ho, another slowpoke post from me.
I attended the 2010 edition of the Kota Kinabalu Jazz Festival last Friday, thanks to a complimentary pass (heh heh).
I only attended the 1st day of the fest, with the following acts:
Day 1:

  • Fingerstyle – Kota Kinabalu, Malaysia
  • Kidz – Kota Kinabalu, Malaysia
  • Sabah RTM Combo – Kota Kinabalu, Malaysia
  • Island Jazz Connection – Penang, Malaysia
  • "Surprise" appearance by Atilia, KL
  • Amir Yussof & Roots – Kuala Lumpur / Kota Kinabalu, Malaysia
Anyway, Friday night was a rainy night. When I reached the venue (covered tennis court, Sutera Harbour) it was raining cats, dogs and elephants. Here are some shots I made of that night. Mind you, I was trying to enjoy the music, and not covering the event, since there were already a few dozen people with cameras clicking away that night (and also because no one asked me to do any covering - LOL).

Enough rambling, on with the pics:

Looks like a fun-filled event, although Jazz isn't my cup of tea. Hmmm, but Amir Yusof is really talented!

Great photos, Chucky!

Too bad I only got the chance to catch Amir Yusof's performance. But I did enjoy the next night's shows!
Superb!
