I was finally back photographing the KL International Jazz Festival 2014 at University Malaya. This popular music event made its debut at the leading public university in Malaysia last year.
I was attending this event as more of a guest than a working photographer, hence the coverage of only two performances at the Experimental Theatre; the UM Big Band and that of David Tughan, the UK Jazz singer who performed his session of "Chetting: A Tribute to Chet Baker".
I've never heard of the KL International Jazz Festival (KLIJF) until recently, when I was engaged to photograph the event on behalf of University Malaya (UM), at which the event was held. The KLIJF was debuted last year at Kuala Lumpur Convention Centre.
This year's event was scheduled to kick off in April but was postponed till now. Internationally acclaimed artistes and accomplished local musicians dished out over 20 performances on 4 indoor and outdoor stages, which included the famed Dewan Tunku Canselor (DTC).
