My Jamaica Jazz and Blues 2010 Roundup

We were there quite early. In fact, we were in time to witness the second half or so of L̶a̶d̶y̶ ̶S̶a̶w̶, sorry, Marion Hall's performance.

Marion Hall by the way is the more refined and controlled version of the same bawdy dancehall queen (Lady Saw).

Personally, I was very impressed with her overall performance. Towards the end, she surprised the crowd with flashes of Lady Saw via a short medley. The crowed was ecstatic; they loved it.

The inimitable Glady's Knight was awesome! I figured she performed for at least an hour and 15 minutes and it was pulsating and energetic right throughout!

It's mind-boggling to believe that Gladys who has been entertaining crowds since the 1950s is still doing so wight this kind of energy today. The crowd went wild after she left, Paula Ann Porter, the MC, had no choice but to ask her to come back on.

Third World, The Reggae Ambassadors, did not disappoint either. We left during their performance but believe me it was hard to do. Hits after hits echoed in the stadium. They even spiced the performance with a piece of scintillating drumming by a featured drummer from Montego Bay.

Virtually incident free, this final night of the Jamaica Jazz and Blues music festival 2010 - was great. Tasha and I had loads of fun; too much to make time for photos - as I probably would have taken otherwise. I managed to get in a few though.

Outside of the musical performances, the Heineken Igloo stole my attention though! It was very impressive. The sleek design coupled with the amazing simulation, beautiful ice carvings and the charming bar girls, made it very captivating .

Even the bar table on the inside was pure ice; intricately carved to fit the Heineken look-and-feel. They even had a booth for taking pictures - made of ice!

As I indicated above, I didn't get in a lot of photos, but we capture a few for our own collection.
