It was again another jam-packed evening at Upstairs Jazz Bar on November 10.
And what pulled the crowd was obviously not merely the regular band â€˜Cadenzaâ€™, but the international bands for â€˜Jazzmandu 2005â€™ who joined to turn it into an unforgettable evening.
The event that was planned with hush, however, could not keep off the desperately excited jazz fans in the Capital. As the night seeped in, the crowd were in numbers impossible for the bar to accommodate.
Yet despite the congestion, with people clogging from down the stairways to the bar station, people werenâ€™t relenting to let the night just pass by.
As all the other Jazzmandu gigs, this was also one night where each group was as good as the last one and the audience was treated to some awesome music.
