    I would certainly want to hear this music that originated in New Orleans around the beginning of the 20th century and subsequently developing through various increasingly complex styles.
    The classy genre of music that is generally marked by intricate, propulsive rhythms, polyphonic ensemble playing, improvisatory, virtuoso solos, melodic freedom, and a harmonic idiom ranging from simple diatonic-ism through chromaticism to atonality. Coupled with the slang, liveliness, spirit, excitement and dance is definitely an event to attend…Jazz is of class…can’t wait..(tickets…)

    I am a serious wannabe n I would be glad to mingle with celebrities attending. My mission is to find my way out. My vision is be like them celebs.

    I would love to win the tickets because I love Jazz , its been a hectic year and with the inflation an opportunity to listen to respectable Kenyan Artists
    Artists: Dela, Muthoni, Neema, Chris Bitok, Jeff Koinange will certainly be a great honor

  • 18. KukuHuku  |  December 6, 2011 at 5:12 am

    I understand jazz. Not in the maestro-prodigy kind of way -I’m a novice, just stepping out of the cultural closet, discovering the audio g-spots in my ears. I understand jazz because I am an artist. The music sends me spinning in an inebriated spate of inspiration. Also, I’m uncovering my eccentricity in dress and manner, embracing my inner African diva. It would be great to win one of those tickets. Just one. I plan to take only myself.

  • 19. Antonymax  |  December 6, 2011 at 9:17 am

    This would be the best way to start my december holiday esp that i’ve not gone anywhere this december, it would be a great thing esp bcoz its a jazz party with cool musicians

  • 20. Antonymax  |  December 6, 2011 at 9:51 am

    This would be the best way to start the holiday, especially with coo jazz music and cool artists wat else would one want

    Hitler banned the saxophone from Germany on two counts. He claims the sax is not a legitimate instrument and that it disrupts the morals of the people.
    -The Metronome, 1933

    My morals need some serious disruption 🙂 hook me up guys, a true fan of jazz!

  • 22. Jandy Kanini  |  December 6, 2011 at 11:24 am

    Well, to say the truth, I rarely ever see the hype with this Jazz thing in Kenya and I really would like to try it out, it will be my 2012 thing for sure. Plus I’m really trying to land this job that I totally love and I’m sure with my super networking skills, I’ll land some few clients/ prospects. So you guys, I need all the help I can get. Thank you!

  • 23. caroline njuki  |  December 6, 2011 at 12:03 pm

    i love jazz especially the afro type. however, I have been starving for some since I now live and work in Djibouti- as you can imagine, there is very little cultural activity that takes place in this tiny Red Sea city- since I will be in Nairobi on the said weekend, please awaken my soul with some jazz…and at the Tribe.; what better reconnection could I have with my city//

  • 24. Sylvia Macharia  |  December 6, 2011 at 1:31 pm

    A jazz of men merge through the doors. Neon lights flash, lips purse and hearts longingly yearn

    Drums beating, passionate, temperature rising like hot lava
    Hands and feet tap lightly while heads bob

    The opium tunes course through my veins as I pant and heave
    My skins crawls as the beats reach a high

    All that jazz!

  • 25. Sonnie  |  December 6, 2011 at 5:05 pm

    @@@@@@@@@@@SCREAAAAAAAAAAAMMMMMM@@@@ ………..gulp!! i have a cold but stil@SCREAM@

    Roses are red violets of blue
    For two free tickets, I wrote this poem for you

    Let me take this moment to tell you about my life
    One that is full of stress and the occasional strife

    Six days a week my eyes squint at a screen
    Toiling and tiring, I am only left with a dream

    To treat my nerves to the sound of sweet melodies
    To watch sway of curves while I drink a few brandies

    Jazz started as an American invention
    But lets not forget the African connection

    Across the world Jazz has lit in us these fires
    Bringing together rum, sweat, and motion.. expanding our desires.

    The sounds of the sax can only inspire
    For me to leave my problems behind, and begin to conspire

    For sound of jazz massages my emotions
    Listening is the first on my list, the second is her fine motions.

    With a drink in my hand and a woman by my side
    The fact that it must end is the only downside

    This is my vision, my fantasy, I shared with you,
    The fact that I did it at all, is reason enough for it to come true.

  • 27. Lilian Nandili  |  December 7, 2011 at 2:16 pm

  • 29. Peter  |  December 7, 2011 at 6:03 pm

    Live a life like jazz

    Guided by the blues scale but always up for improvisation

  • 30. WamKan  |  December 8, 2011 at 9:54 am

    Christmas is about giving…………Jazz is about harmony, I would love to win the tickets as a gift to my parents anniversary and a tribute to my Father’s 60th year. The nostalgia and the modern feel would be a thrill to them.

    Make me a Santa!

  • 31. Christine  |  December 8, 2011 at 2:18 pm

    My best friend and I have been a loyal customer since All That Jazz started and this would just make my year… And we love it!!!

  • 38. Mikey  |  December 11, 2011 at 2:41 pm

    I hate jazz. Its bag music. I mean, who would listen to a demented old guy blow into an annoying golden pipe with buttons on it for ten minutes with another (equally) demented old guy tap a brass plate, all in the name of music?
    Unless its a gathering of bags. x_x barf #ihatejazz and I wouldn’t listen to it even if all forms of music were to mysteriously vanish off the face of this planet.

  • 39. Mark  |  December 14, 2011 at 8:13 am
