Another great musician passed away on the 4th of january 2017, one of whom I was particularly fond: Ustad Abdul Halim Jaffer Khan (1927-2017).
Over the years we posted nine LPs and a set of two cassettes by him. See here. Here we post in his memory a copy of a cassette from 1989. Our friend KF made a CD out of this cassette.
In 2015 Meera Music in Mumbai published two CDs with archival recordings:
Abdul Halim Jaffer Khan (Sitar) – Sitar: Raga Abhogi (51:29), Raga Chakradhun (27:32), MEERA MUSIC, mm 121
Wonderful recording by the great Sitar master. Excellent live recordings from 1968. Unbelievably fluid Sitar performance. Outstanding.
Abdul Halim Jaffer Khan (Sitar) – Sitar: Raga Kedar (50:34), Raga Gorakh Kalyan (27:21), MEERA MUSIC, mm 120
Beautiful live recording by the great Sitar master. First published years ago by MUSICIAN'S GUILD.
As always, these CDs can be obtained from: firstname.lastname@example.org
