Tributes to great singer Jagjit Singh from all music lovers

Last journey of the Ghazal King……

Jagjit Singh’s melodious voice will always be remembered !!!

It is not just his overwhelmingly heart-tugging voice and serene rendition of ghazals that will stay with his admirers. For there are far too many accomplishments that grace the legend of Jagjit Singh.

Like, how he single-handedly revived and popularised Ghazals by garnishing them with Geet, creating the 'non-film music' space in India's pop culture; or how, 24 years ago, he and wife Chitra, were the first recording artists in India to use digital multi-track recording for their album, Beyond Time.His five-decade-long career gave us 80 memorable albums, in Punjabi, Hindi, Urdu, Bengali, Gujarati, Sindhi and Nepali.
But it is only through the reminiscences of musicians, who worked closely with him from his first studio recording, his first live show, to his very last, that we get a glimpse of a master musician and an incredible human being. Guitarist Clarence Peterson, 74, and percussionist Narayan Sheware, 69, are two such loyalists.

Peterson recounts of a "young, smart and good-looking man" approaching him soon after he had finished a live show in the 60s. "Jagjit came up to me and appreciated my guitar playing. He was young, smart and good-looking but wasn't famous then. 'Let's make some music together', he told me. I agreed."

Melody queen Lata Mangeshkar said, "It is a great loss for the music industry but it is a greater personal loss for me. I knew him well. He worked very hard... sang from the heart."

Her sister Asha Bhonsle said that there will never be a person like him again.
"We will never get a person like him again. He had a soothing voice, and was a very cheerful person," Bhonsle said.

Amitabh Bachchan remembered Singh and his "sonorous silk voice".

Ghazal singer Pankaj Udhas said: "Music was not a profession for him, it was a passion. He took ghazal singing to another level. By nature, he was a fighter. It is a big loss to the music industry."
