Last weekend Mauna Kea Resort hosted Hawaii Island’s 2012 Jazz and Blues Festival. Though I could not attend the Saturday night oceanfront bash at the hotel’s luau grounds, I did make the Sunday Jazz Brunch at the Manta Pavilion overlooking Kauna’oa Beach (aka Mauna Kea Beach). Skip Martin sang one of his new songs accompanied by flugelhorn and keyboard.
The video was hard to capture as the Manta Pavilion restaurant is built almost entirely of wrap around picture windows. Despite video underexposure, the audio is very good. Thank you Skip Martin for your kind tolerance of my video camera!
If you are looking for a reason to visit Mauna Kea Resort and Beach or the Big Island late spring next year, be sure to allow time in your schedule to enjoy the Jazz and Blues Festival. This new festival is gaining in popularity so buy your tickets early!
