Patan’s jazzy affair
Jazz at Patan was again a different treat for music afficiandos.
With the advantage that the bands had of the historic venue, they had won half the battle even before the concert began. But it couldn’t have been just that, as the musicians were just in fine fettle to flaunt their forte. Among all others, Soprano’s saxophone with its soul-stirring tunes remained the major attention-grabber throughout the show.
However, to accredit everything to Soprano would be an injustice to the other musicians who were equally mesmerising. The classical bands that played in consonance with the international bands to produce modern version of classical music was rivetting.
Every time the western instruments were taken over by the classical instruments to rise to a crescendo, thundering applause followed, especially TR Dhandapany ensemble (South Indian rhythms and sounds) gave an exotic touch to an already soulful experience.
