Jazz & Soul Safari: The Beginnings, The Evolution & Growth, The 10th Anniversary, The Future and A Road Trip to Remember

The Beginnings The dream, the idea, to bring Jazz to the masses across East and Central Africa was first conceived by TShaka Mayanja, a well-known Music Promoter, Producer, Songwriter and Lead Bassist to the band, Blackroots Unlimited. TShaka later shared this idea with his friend and host of the popular Jazz Evening show on Radio One FM, Elijah Kitaka. With support from some generous sponsors the first Jazz Safari concert dubbed, “The Sizzling Jazz Safari”, took place on the 19th December, 2008 right outside Ange Mystique at the parking lot. The event featured Saxophonist Eric Marienthal, drummer Oscar Seaton and host of other local and regional artists. And from that inaugural event Jazz Safari was born and off to a good start.

This is certainly a great piece of work, professionally recorded despite all the inherent issues that accompany a live performance recording. The team behind it did a superb job in capturing the experience and energy of the whole concert in a recorded media- DVD Disc. All this took place, live, on the 8th October 2009 at the Kampala Serena Hotel (Victoria Ballroom), Uganda. On Stage you had Chuck Loeb (Guitar), Eric Marienthal (Sax), Oscar Seaton (Drums), Matt Cooper (Piano), TShaka Mayanja (Bass Guitar), Pragmo (Keyboard/Synths), Wakake Otieno (Percussions) and Steve Oundo (Vocals) The DVD features original recordings by Eric Marienthal and Chuck Loeb. That apparently were the first they were playing…
