so, after three days filling up my ears with music, the first word is: super tiring. and the second word is: super satisfying.

loved the show, hated the traffic. it took 2 hours to reach JHCC, i was kinda late for the special show: mr. a to z. when i arrived at the exhibition hall b, it was already crowded, and my friends (noncha fitri jay) were in the middle of the crowd. i went through so many people, and when i was stuck a bit far behind my friends, ternyata ada steven sama badar not so far from me. so i joined them. jason masuk stage on-time, and for the first song he sang Make It Mine!!! i recorded it. then he continued with beautiful songs, and suddenly i couldn’t breathe so i went to the emptier space in the back of the hall and met mutia. in the end, he sang I’m Yours and disappeared. i thought it was over, but then he came back and sang noncha’s fav song: No Stopping Us. and again i thought it was getting over, but he sang MY FAV SONG: BUTTERFLY!!!!!!! i was soooooo happy that i forgot to recordit.
then after that, i didn’t watch anything else, since i was too excited and a bit exhausted. so i went home at around 12.

i was disappointed twice. because of some probs, i arrived late and i missed SOULVIBE for the world! i was sooooo down, because i really really like soulvibe’s songs… huh anyway i watched ecoutez with reta, only half show and i moved onto RAN and met everyone else. they performed well, changed some of the arrangements, it was cool. when it was nearly finished i went out to see glenn fredly, but heck the plenary hall was already full! and i was down. because i can hear glenn singing chrisye’s song. and oh ya i can’t watch barry likumahuwa project at dji sam soe lounge because only 18+ people can enter the lounge!! what an enormous let-down. and sooo i joined luna febi sunk ahtar, watched 21st night and roy ayers instead. they were uber cool. and i left at around 1.

this is probably the BEST DAY of the java jazz marathon! i arrived there at around 5, i missed aditya and slank but it’s okay. i went to cendrawasih 1&2 to see tompi with iman riski tep, it was sooo crowded and hot! but the thing i like is dia banyak nyanyi lagu dari albumnya yang baru, my happy life, and i like the whole album a lot! trus dia sempet nge-medley lagu2 lamanya, sooo cool and i stayed until he’s done. and then i went to assembly 2 to see abdul and the coffee theory to see abe as the percussion section. it was great because; 1. we all sit while watching, 2. abdul’s songs are jazzy, 3. and there was David NAIF! he’s a lot entertaining the audiences with his goofy attitudes and he made the show even better! then i moved to the exhibition hall b to see maliq, but there was a band named soil & pimp whose show was not done yet. the band was from japan, and i think it was a bit strange when the band and the fans shouted “soil! soil! soil! soil!” kinda LOT and it made the crowd looked like a cult or something. but the music was good, nempel di otak dan musisinya masing2 keren bgt mainin alat musiknya. so maliq was late for an hour, but the performance FULLY PAID THE WAITING!! it was like usual, totally arrsomeeee! why awesome? 1. they come up with formal suits, and it suits them well, 2. they played great songs, 3. and as always, they changed the arrangements AND IT WAS TOO COOL! and they also featured 21st night and the organic bla bla (i forgot the name). and you know what the boys even DANCED the THRILLER DANCE! it was super duper hyper hilarious (but still cool anyway).
oh and my friend and i took a picture with ricky harun hahahahahahahahahaha.
not to be forgotten, the pictures! (please do mind that my cam is NOT a DSLR or thewhat, it’s just an ordinary semi-SLR canon powershot s3is, so…. the photos aren’t that good.)
