Seventy years ago he was exactly like yet another college going child but nowadays he is the apex of music. Be it a small segment of only five seconds or a alone of five full minutes but the interest and pleasure with which this man works and gives complete justice to his brass reed tool with gradually widening tube widely named as the “Saxophone” is completely mind blowing.
The elderly many in addition to well-known saxophonist in the Indian music business he is none apart from Manohari Singh nicknamed as “Manohari Da” or simply “Dada” who has been bestowed with the Dada Phalke Academy prize for his invaluable share to cine music in addition to O.P. satta king chart Nayyar Merit for his share to the Hindi movie industry.
Created in Kolkata (March 08 1931) and continuing the heritage of his family of artists he is known to possess set fantastic standards as a musician, arranger and composer is really a consummate grasp of his craft. What intrigues me is the actual fact what pieces this octogenarian in addition to the rest of the audience with shining huge difference and brimming self-confidence?
If there have been such a thing that is being controlled by passion for Manohari Singh then it will be his gold-plated saxophone ordered from New York in 1969. He makes it specific that he keeps his gold-plated Saxophone far from the dirt cool and clean to deliver his work with benchmark of quality.
In Mumbai Dada was invited in the Bombay Laboratory Studios for the first time to provide background music. It was here that was introduced to other major composers like S.D. Burman, R.D Burman, Laxmikant, Sumant Raj and several others. It was the tune Tumhe Yaad Hoga Kabhi Hum Mile The from Satta Bazaar that built Dada become popular overnight. Dada even offers a record named’Sax Attraction’to his credit, which contains the artistic term of his saxophone. He also had the ability to utilize Ashok Patki and give his benefits to Marathi Film Industry.
Manohari Singh can also be the Mumbai movie industry’s last remaining hyperlinks with people of RD’s original group who performed for the saxophonist and mandolin. One must acknowledge that the true artists behind movie tunes must certanly be ordered in the front and be perceptible. Musicians might be working from a location hidden from public see however they too must be recognized due to their work.
