American born saxophonist, Matthew Dasco left the audience in awe at a jam-packed Kgalagadi Jazz Beats show held at the Pavilion restaurant on Saturday evening.

First on stage were the hosts, Trans Kalahari Quintet, who set a highly competitive tone. They played unhurried jazz, with saxophonist Dasco alongside Andrew Chinganga. They piloted a song titled Tender Loving Care (TLC), which momentarily made the audience emotional, with its gentle saxophone melody.
