I wish to also thank you for the post of the album cover info - It is good when we can figure out some of these rare recordings. I love this rendition and it is a great one.
I also wish to comment about this thread. After spending the evening re-reading it I find it a beautiful thing that in almost 3100 views - over 60 post's - some of which were extremely lengthy and full of great information & insites into numerous topics concerning the Indore & Jaffirkani Gharana's - The Beenkari Baj and Dhrupad styles - their relationship in the ICM universe and the comparison of styles and introduction of many ICM luminaries and lesser known masters, clips - quotes - and facts That there has NOT been a single flaming off color my gharana - guru - favorite is best & yours stinks discussion or any controversy AT ALL - This is a very rare thing and most welcome to be sure.
THANK YOU THANK YOU AND THANK YOU AGAIN to all the contributors for making this one of my favorite and most informative topics that I have had the pleasure to contribute to. Maybe it is the topic - the dhrupad and the been influences - that have kept it so harmonious. In any event I hope we find more information - clips and history to post of this most beautiful topic.
My guru - my friend - would be happy as he was the most peaceful man I have ever known, maybe in some small way his essence is felt here.

Your Friendly

Latest info from Ustd Abdul Halim Jaffer Khan's website - It's a great site with some great clips & vids & much info for us to enjoy. http://ajkhan.instantencore.com/web/home.aspx

Quoted from site:
Daring innovator and pioneer of the Jafferkhani Baaj in sitar playing, Ustad Abdul Halim Jaffer Khan is an indelible part of India's sitar trinity comprising Ustad Vilayat Khan and Pt. Ravi Shankar. He hails from the Bande Ali Khan - Indore Beenkar Gharana and received tutelage from his father Jaffer Khan, a well known singer, sitarist and beenkar. He has been a distinguished All India Radio Artist since the early 1940's being credited with bringing Carnatic ragas such as Kirwani, Kanakangi, Latangi, Karaharapriya, Manavati, Ganamurti and others into the sitar repertoire, rendering them through a Hindustani sensibility and the distinct Jafferkhani Baaj style.

Ustad Abdul Halim Jaffer Khan was the first Hindustani musician to collaborate with the Carnatic tradition in a performance with Veena maestro Dr. Emani Sankara Sastri. In 1958, he collaborated with Jazz pianist and composer Dave Brubeck for a rare performance with the Dave Brubeck Quintet that was a part of Brubeck's Jazz Ambassador residency in India. That memorable collaboration, Brubeck stated, led him to play in a different way. Khan also collaborated with noted English guitarist Julian Bream in 1963. Always seeking to break ground in a firmly established system, Ustad Abdul Halim Jaffer Khan's early experimentation with polytonality in Indian classical instrumentation was acheived in his sitar quintet.

Ustad Abdul Halim Jaffer Khan has bequeathed an invaluable musical legacy to the history of Indian cinema. He has composed and played for epic films such as Anarkali, Mughal-e-Azam, Jhanak Jhanak Payal Baaje, Goonj Uthi Shehnai and Kohinoor to name a few. He has collaborated with renowned music directors as Naushad, Anil Biswas, Vasant Desai, D. P. Korgaonkar, Shri. Ramachandra and Madan Mohan.

In 1976, Ustad Abdul Halim Jaffer Khan established the Halim Academy of Sitar where he and his son Zunain Khan have been teaching sitar to students from all over the world. He has published Jafferkhani Baaj: Innovation in Sitar Music, as an introduction to his perspective on music, innovations and his unique playing style.
