Java Jazz Festival 2010: Jakarta Broadway Singers, RTM Orchestra, BAG Trio


RTM Orchestra (Radio Televisyen (Diraja) Malaysia) was established since 1961 as an orchestra to escort various shows broadcasted by this Malaysian radio and television. Dato’ Mokhzani Ismail came in to join the orchestra after graduating from Berklee College of Music, in where he majored in jazz piano. We have heard them scheduled to play in Indonesia before and now finally appeared in Java Jazz Festival 2010. RTM is the best jazz orchestra in Malaysia, and we could see why.

Bringing the theatrical broadway style to grace the Lawu I Acoustic Hall at Java Jazz Festival 2010, Jakarta Broadway Singers gave a different flavour to add the diversity of choices. Not only singing, they had their own story line as well, severd with remarkable colourful costumes.

Bag Trio (9)

Consisting of personels from different bands: Gerald Situmorang – Sketsa, Aldhi Mahardika – New Season and Bramantyo Musyanif , a new formed band “BAG Trio” they gave away one performance that’s different than others. Combining Jazz, funk, rock and world music in their own style they bring the audiences into a journey that they can enjoy. Seductive, while wild yet stunning was probably the best words describing who BAG trio is.
