    Title: A Short History of How Jazz Became an Indian Music

    Description:

    Presentation by Shri Naresh Fernandes, author of the book, The Taj Mahal Foxtrot: The story of Bombay's Jazz Age  

     

    From the accounts of most standard jazz histories, it took the genius of American saxophonist, John Coltrane to demonstrate in the 1960s how jazz could enrich itself by seeking inspiration in Hindustani classical music.  But the reality is more complex. From the 1940s, a passionate group of Indian jazz musicians had been attempting to find an Indian way to play jazz, both in art music and in popular music. The presentation will use audio clips and photographs to trace the journey of jazz from New Orleans to New Delhi, exploring how an American transplant became a vibrant Indian hybrid in the fertile soil of the subcontinent
