The songs of Barsaat were instrumental in Lata Mangeshkar’s climb to the top as a playback singer.

Mehboob’s Andaaz (1949) made Raj a top star and in the same year it was the passionate romance Barsaat which really reckoned Raj Kapoor as a director of much merit. Barsaat, a runaway hit, also brought to the limelight new music directors Shankar-Jaikishen, lyricists Shailendra and Hasrat Jaipuri and the actress Nimmi. The raw passion between Raj Kapoor and Nargis in Barsaat shot with a beautiful almost poetic use of light and shade drove audiences wild. The music of the film was hummed across the nation and along with Andaaz and Mahal that year, the songs were instrumental in Lata Mangeshkar’s climb to the top as a playback singer. In fact Raj Kapoor’s musical sense and feel for rhythm and involvement in music sittings have ensured the highest quality of music in his films.

The fifties saw Raj Kapoor’s greatest work as a Producer‑Director besides establishing himself as one of India’s biggest ever film stars along with Dev Anand and Dilip Kumar-the Trimurthi! Awaara (1951), the tale of a vagabond was perhaps his greatest triumph and was released in Russia as Bradyaga to unprecedented success. It’s dream sequence with huge statues set amongst the clouds to the strains of Nargis dancing to Ghar Aaya Mera Pardesi is a cine-east’s delight even today! With Awaara, Raj Kapoor created the Chaplinisque tramp, an allegory for the innocent state of mind of the post Independent Indian. This image was used once again in Shree 420 (1955) tracing the corruption of an innocent soul who comes to the city to make his living. In fact. many of Raj’s other films look at the naove simple hero used by a cruel and corrupt society like Anadi (1959).

After his break up with Nargis (their last film together was AVM’s Chori Chori (1956) though she did do a in Jaagte Raho (1956). Chori Chori was directed by Anant Thakur and produced by AVM Film company from Madras. This could explain why the film was based in the South as the hero and heroine travel all over the countryside from Madras to Bangalore. Chori Chori was inspired by Frank Capra’s 1934 comedy-It Happened One Night starring Clark Gable and Claudette Colbert. This kind of comedy was a genre that was extremely popular in the 1930s till the grim realities of World War II made their presence felt. Comedies generally worked on the battle of the sexes as the hero and heroine gave it to each other before finally falling in love. Their bickering and fighting with each other as they exchanged barbs and double entendres is what constituted the fun element of the film.

The key character in this battle of the sexes would be the heiress. She was often dizzy, saucy, flighty who fled from homes, jilted bridegroom at the altar and generally carried on with total disregard for the existence of breadlines and unemployment. Thus she was used humorously in such films as an object of contempt and ridicule. Of course by the end of the film not only does the hero snag the heiress but through him she is also humanized to see normal life and normal people quite unlike herself. And when she has to escape with the hero when her father’s detectives land up there is by behaving normal, as the normal wife of the normal hero. And during the film the hero takes on the weight of becoming the very image of the people revealing them in the process of revealing himself to the haughty, upper class heroine.

Chori Chori is a typical example of what constitutes a road film. While a popular genre in Hollywood, India has never really embraced this format and the efforts have been few-Bombay to Goa (1972) or Dil Hai ki Maanta Nahin (1992) which incidentally was also a remake of It Happened One Night and Roman Holiday combined.

Perhaps this is so because the road is an enduring theme in American culture. The road movie I in this regard like the musical or the Western, a Hollywood genre that catches peculiarly American dreams, tensions and anxieties.

Nargis is a revelation in the film as the dizzy heiress. She proves she can play screwball comedy as effectively as she could her intense dramatic roles. It is a fine perfomance with her sense of comic timing spot on. See her as the puppet in the Jahaan Main Jaati Hoon song. It is Nargis’s sense of razor sharp timing that offsets her inability. She carries off the song sequence excellently by her expressions. Raj Kapoor of course had born comic talent. He is absolutely perfect in the role of the impoverished journalist Sagar. Chori Chori marks yet another land-mark in Raj Kapoor’s illustrious acting career.  Pran does his familiar bad man turn with relative ease. They are more than strongly supported by the comic element of the film-Gope, Johnny Walker and Bhagwan.

Chori Chori represents some of the finest work of Shankar-Jaikishen in their entire career. The evergreen musical score with lyrics by Shailendra and Hasrat Jaipuri ensured Shankar-Jaikishen their first ever Filmfare Award for Best Music. The film has brilliant songs with each song better than the other. First and foremost are the two all time great Lata Mangeshkar-Manna Dey romantic duets Yeh Raat Bheegi Bheegi and Aaja Sanam Madhur Chandni Mein Hum. With Mukesh trying his hand to be an actor this was the phase when Manna Dey briefly sang as the voice of Raj Kapoor in films like Shree 420 and Chori Chori.

As one hears Manna Dey one cannot but think sadly that the film industry never really gave this great singer his due. He was always regarded a poor second to Rafi, Mukesh, Kishore, Talat or Hemant Kumar which is a pity because Manna Dey was such a fine singer with an extremely strong classical base himself. Lata Mangeshkar of course leaves her stamp on the film with perhaps her greatest sad song ever-Rasik Balma. It is perhaps technically the best composition of the film and the emotion and pathos with which Lata renders this song is unbelievable. Only such a gifted singer could give such expression to words like Lata could

While Raj Kapoor continued to explore social issues-Jis Desh Mein Ganga Behti Hai (with Padmini & Pran) (1960) or complex human relationships-Sangam (Raj-Rajendra Kumar-Vyjayantimala) (1964) there is a marked difference in his treatment of the heroine who became a sex object with a high accent on her physical attributes! Reverting back to the Chaplinisque image, Kapoor made his magnum opus Mera Naam Joker (Raj-Kapoor, Dharmendra, Rajednra Kumar, Dara Singh, Manoj Kumar, Padmini, Simmi, Sonia Sahni, Pran, Rishi Kapoor) (1970) about the circus-joker who laughs on the outside and cries within and though absolutely brilliant in parts (particularly the first chapter of the adolescent hero discovering love and sex) the film, a highly self indulgent exercise flopped miserably at the box office shattering him.

It was Shankar-Jaikishen who gave me a break and made me sing a whole repertoire of songs.

For the nonagenarian legendary singer Manna Dey, who has mesmerised the audience the world over with his lilting voice, the announcement of being chosen for the coveted Dada Sahab Phalke award came as God’s gift.

For the nonagenarian legendary singer Manna Dey, who has mesmerised the audience the world over with his lilting voice, the announcement of being chosen for the coveted Dada Sahab Phalke award came as God’s gift.

“It’s very flattering, the government, thinking it is right to confer the award on me.It came as a pleasant surprise. It’s Gods gift, I accept it with all humility,” Manna Dey said.

“This, however, I attribute it to the great music makers of the industry,” the veteran singer said.

Manna Dey, who initially trained under his uncle Krishna Chandra Dey, and then honed his singing under the tutelage of stalwarts like Ustad Aman Ali Khan and Ustad Abdul Rahman Khan, attributes the honour to music composers like Shankar-Jaikishan, Madan Mohan and Sachin Dev Burman “who made me sing the way I sang.

Remembering the struggle that he went through when he came to the city of dreams, Mumbai, in 1942, the 91-year-old singer said in those days, he was singing bhajans and finding it very difficult to get a break. “It was Shankar-Jaikishen who gave me a break and made me sing a whole repertoire of songs.”

Recalling his experience with musical hit Sur Na Saje, Kya Gaon Mein, he said, “There were a host of objections to me singing the song, but Shankar-Jaikishen insisted that I render the song since it was composed keeping me in mind. The song created waves, I am eternally grateful to the duo for that.

“As a playback singer, I was belittled by producers. The actors in those days had a great say in the choice of singers they wanted for their films. It was humiliating and tough but then it was a passing phase,” Manna Dey added.

Sharing his beautiful moments during the making of the song Ye Raat Bheegi Bheegi from the famous film Raj Kapoor, Naris starrer Barsaat, the singer said, “Can you believe Raj saab and Nargisji enacted the whole song for me while I was rehearsing the song, to get the right feel.”

The duo also enacted the one of the most popular romantic hit of all times, Pyar Hua Ekraar Hua Hai, for him while he was practising the song, he said.

Describing Raj Kapoor as an actor with a great sense of music, Manna Dey said, “I cannot think of anybody who was as capable of handling a song as Rajji.”

Talking about his contemporaries, Manna Dey referred Mohammad Rafi, as “God’s own man with no vices”, and added, “He was very friendly and encouraging to me. I consider him as a pioneer in playback singing, who literally lived the songs, he sang.”

“Kishore Kumar, though not classically trained, had a great voice, could improvise beautifully and had his own unique style. I learnt a lot from Lata, Rafi and Asha both as singers and persons,” he said.

On the film music of today, he said, “Where will you get composers like S D Burman, Shankar Jaikishen or Madan Mohan. Manna Dey, however, praised singers like Sonu Nigam, Udit Narain, Shreya Ghoshal and Sunidhi Chauhan. “Sonu, I think is very good,” he added.

On music talent shows like the Sa Re Ga Ma, Manna Dey said, “I do not think much of these shows. They are too young to be skyrocketed like that. I really do not think it is right for their parents to push them into it so early in life, music is a penance not a race.”

The veteran singer who does his riyaz (music practice) for one-and-a-half hours daily, said, “It is food to me. As Shakespeare rightly said if music be the food of love, play on.”

Married to a Keralite, Sulochana, whose love for Rabindra Sangeet brought them together in Mumbai, he said, “She not only used to sing Rabindra Sangeet but also spoke and wrote Bengali much before she married him.”

The music icon, who has two daughters Shuroma and Shumita, said, “Though Shuroma sings beautifully, it is Shumita who has recorded two-three cassettes of Bengali music.”

For those who want to opt for film music as a profession, Manna Dey asserts that they must learnt it under the guidance of a guru or a Ustad.

“They cannot just take it up in an amateur manner,” he added.

President Pratibha Patil will confer the country’s highest honour in Indian cinema on the singer for his contribution, in New Delhi on October 21.

એક સુબહ …(શંકર)જયકિશન કે નામ !!

નવેમ્બર 12, 2009 Deepali દ્વારા     

નેટની દુનિયામા વિહાર કરતા ગઇકાલે રાત્રે ફેસબુકમાં મિત્ર દિપાલી સોમૈયાની પ્રોફાઇલ વિઝિટ કરતાં જાણવા મળ્યુ કે “સા-રે-ગ-મ-પ” માં ત્રણ ગુજરાતી ગાયકો સેમિફાઇન સુધી પહોંચ્યા છે. આનંદ થયો. સાથે સાથે આ જ વાત પર દિલીપ મહેતા સાથે ધણી ચર્ચા થઇ. નૌશાદ તેમજ શંકર-જયકિશન કેન્દ્રમાં હતા. ચર્ચા રાષ્ટ્રવાદ તથા બીજા રીલેટેડ ટોપીક પર ચાલતી હતી પરંતુ ફરી ક્યારેક. કંઇક નવું જાણવા મળે પછી એ વિશે વધારે જાણકારી મેળવવા હું કાયમ તત્પર હોઉં છુ. બસ આ જ વિચારો સાથે બે-પાંચ આર્ટીકલ વાંચ્યા. Interesting ….

મુળ ગુજરાતી એવા જયકિશન વિશે આટલી બધી ખબર ન હતી. એક  સંગીતકાર તરીકેની ઓળખાણએ આજે “એક ગુજરાતી”તરીકેનું વિશિષ્ટ સ્થાન લીધુ.

આજથી 40 વર્ષ પહેલા, સન 1968માં ભારતીય શાસ્ત્રીય સંગીત અને વેસ્ટર્ન મ્યુઝિકનુ fusion કરીને “RAGA JAZZ Style” નામનો concept પૂરો પાડનાર સૌ પ્રથમ વ્યક્તિ એટલે જયકિશન. અને એ પણ ભારતમા. આ પહેલા આવુ fusion ઉસ્તાદ રવિશંકરે કર્યુ હતુ પણ તે અમેરિકામાં. આ સમયે ફિલ્મ ઉધોગના સંગીતકારો કોઇ કારણોસર હડતાલ પર હતા. બધા જ સંગીતકારો ઘરે બેઠા હતા…આવામાં HMV ના શ્રી વિજયકિશોર દુબેના મનમાં એક પરિકલ્પનાનો જન્મ થયો અને તેમને આ વિશે શંકર-જયકિશનને વાત કરી. શંકરજીને આ વાત બહુ જામી નહી તેથી તેમને વિરોધ કર્યો. જયકિશને આ વાત યોગ્ય લાગી, તેઓએ શંકરજીના વિરોધ છતાં આ ચેલેંજ ઉપાડી લીધો અને કઇક ક્રીએટીવ કરવાનું નક્કી કર્યુ. આ વાતને સ્વીકારી લીધા બાદ તેમની આખી ટીમ કાર્યરત થઇ. લોકસત્તાના સહયોગથી પ્રાપ્ત થયેલ નીચેની તસ્વીરમા આ આખી ટીમનુ કામ જોઇ શકાય છે.


પ્રખ્યાત સિતારવાદક ઉસ્તાદ રઇઝ ખા , મશહૂર સેક્સોફોન વાદક મનોહર દાદા (કાળા ચશ્મા લગાયેલ મહાશય), ડ્રમ પર છે ડ્રમબોય ગોવિંદા અને જમણી બાજુ જયકિશનજી. આ સિવાય બીજા અન્ય વાદક કલાકારોએ પણ પોતાનુ હુનર બતાવ્યુ હતુ.


અનંત નૈયર તેમજ રમાકાંત (તબલા)

જોન પરેરા (Trumpet)

એ ડી ટ્રેવર્સ (Bass)

શાસ્ત્રીય રાગમાં પ્રસિધ્ધ રાગ તોડી, રાગ ભૈરવ, રાગ માલકૌંસ, રાગ કલાવતી, રાગ તિલક કામોદ, રાગ મલ્હાર, રાગ વૈરાગી, રાગ જયજયવંતી, રાગ મિશ્ર પીલૂ, રાગ શિવ રંજની તેમજ રાગ ભૈરવીનો સમાવેશ થાય છે.

આવો આ બધામાંથી “રાગ તોડી” સાંભળીયે. શાસ્ત્રીય સંગીતને સમજતા સમજતા આખી જીન્દગી પસાર થઇ જાય એમ છે. નાની નાની બાબતોને ધ્યાનમાં રાખવાની હોય છે તેમ શાસ્ત્રીય સંગીત જાણનારાઓ પાસેથી જાણવા મળ્યુ. આ બારીકતાને તો આપણે ન ઓળખી શકીએ પણ સિતારમાંથી રેલાતા સુર જ્યારે હવામાં પ્રસરાય છે ત્યારે ખરેખર દિવ્યાનુભૂતિ થાય છે.

આપણને આવા “Indo-Jazz Recording” થી પરિચિત કરાવનાર શ્રી જયકિશનને સલામ !

Maestro Shankar Singh Ram Singh

We have seen people come and people go, but very seldom do we come across a person who is the most evolved and complete. His insatiable interest and amazing talent in music helped him to totally focus and dedicate his entire life for his passion. He is non other than the legendary Shankar.

The master musician was the candle that shone bright to shed light around. The kind hearted and generous human was a caring relative, modest, loyal and proud gentleman, all rolled into one exemplary human being. He was a well grounded man who did not allow his super success get to his head. By the front door of his home and in his car, Shankar kept pairs of his old shoes to always remind him of his modest beginning. For that alone, my respect for the gentlemen soared very high.

Politics and showbiz are volatile fields. You are up one day and down the other. There are no permanent relationships here, only fair weather friends. With his close friends, Shailendra and Jaikishan gone, Shankar had to face the hardships of abandonment of those whom he thought were the closest. But the brave man weathered it all. His immense strength kept him going, never having to bow to anyone, never having to compromise.

Today, on his birth anniversary, it pains me no end to think that the media had deliberately chosen to ignore the vast and best contribution that he, along with Jaikishan, had made to the music world. The banner he helped create with his buddy is ignored intentionally. People might forget the great composer, but his music will never be forgotten.

Happy Birthday, Shankar!! You will continue to live in our hearts and souls forever.

शंकर जयकिशन:शाश्वत संगीत के कालजयी प्रणेता

श्री द्वारका प्रसाद खाम्बिया

सामान्यतः कम फिल्मों में अच्छा संगीत देना संभव है परन्तु अधिक से अधिक फिल्मों में लोकप्रियता की बुलंदियों वाला संगीत अविराम व सतत 21 वर्षों तक देना ईश्वरीय वरदान है कहा जा सकता है। ऐसे वरदान से ईश्वर ने संगीतकार शंकर जयकिशन को नवाजा था। अपने नायाब संगीत द्वारा देश के साथ विदेशों में भी धूम मचा देने वाले वे प्रथम संगीतकार थे।
लोगों में सदैव जिज्ञासा बनी रही कि आखिर इतनी लोकप्रिय धुनों मे से कोन धुन किसकी है। यह जिज्ञासा जयकिशन जी की मृत्यु के बाद शंकर जी विरोधी समूह ने और बढ़ा दी। वे सिद्ध करना चाहते थे कि धुन जय किशन ही तैयार करते थे । लोगो में भी यह जानने की इच्छा प्रबल होने लगी कि आखिर जयकिशन की रचनाएं कोन सी है। कुछ पुष्ट जानकारियों के आधार पर ज्ञात होता है कि निम्नांकित कुछ लोकप्रिय धुनों को जयकिशन ने ही रचा था –
1 जीना यहां मरना यहां(मेरा नाम जोकर)
2 तुम जो हमारे मीत न होते ( आशिक)
3आजा सनम मधुर चांदनी में हम( चोरी चोरी)
4 आवाज दे के हमें तुम बुलाओ(प्रोफेसर)
5 इस रंग बदलती दुनियां में (राजकुमार)
6 तेरी प्यारी प्यारी सूरत को (ससुराल)
7 ए मेरे दिल कहीं और चल ( दाग)
8 सनों छोटी सी गुड़िया की ये कहानी(सीमा)
9 दिल अपना और प्रीत पराई (दिल अपना और प्रीत पराई)
10 देखा है तेरी आंखों में प्यार ही (प्यार ही प्यार)
11 आए बहार बन के लुभा के (वसंत बहार)
12 दिल के झरोखे में तुझ को (,ब्रम्हचारी)
13 ओ मेरे शाहे खूब ओ मेरी (लव इन टोकियो)
14 कहे झूम झूम रात ये सुहानी ( लव मैरिज)
15 अजी रूठ कर अब कहां जाइएगा(आरज़ू)
16 रसिक बलमा (,चोरी चोरी)
17 ये मेरा प्रेम पत्र पढ़कर(संगम)
ये गीत जयकिशन की संगीत रचनाओं की झलकी मात्र है।
परन्तु आम जनता श्रोता उन्हें उन्हें एकीकृत रूप में देखता है। भारतीय हिन्दी फिल्म संगीत के गौरवशाली
इतिहास के पृष्ठों पर जिन महान संगीतकारों के नाम स्वर्णिम अक्षरों अंकित है उनकी जगमगाती पंक्ति में शंकर जयकिशन का नाम निर्विवादत: सर्वत्र मुख व अग्रणी रूप से परि गणित किया जस सकता है।
उनके जादुई संगीत ने जहां एक ओर परंपरा और आधुनिकता के मध्य अभूतपूर्व सेतु का निर्माण किया वहीं दूसरी ओर अपनी विलक्षण प्रतिभा द्वारा वाद्ययंत्रों के कुशल इस्तेमाल,नूतन प्रयोगों,भावानुकूल गीतों के संयोजन तथा शास्त्रीय व पाष्छ्यात संगीत के बेजोड़ तालमेल द्वारा जून अनगिनत सरस,मधुर, कर्ण प्रिय व मनमोहक कालजयी गीतों का सृजन किया।वे न केवल भारत वरन् समूची दुनियां में फैले बेशुमार संगीत प्रेमियों के लिए सचमुच बेहद अनमोल धरोहर है।
बहुत कम प्रतिभा ऐं ऐसी होती है जिनको कालजयी होने का सौभाग्य नियति प्रदान करती है।शंकर जयकिशन का शुमार ऐसी ही कालजयी प्रतिभाओं में किया जा सकता है।वे न केवल अपने समय के सर्वाधिक लोकप्रिय संगीतकार रहे बल्कि यह कहना किंचित भी अतिशयोक्तिपूर्ण न होगा कि उनका मधुर संगीत आज भी प्रासंगिक होकर अपनी लोकप्रियता को बरकरार रखे हुए है।उनके द्वारा रचित बेमिसाल गीत आज भी दुनियां भर के संगीत प्रेमियों के कानों में रस घोलते है।

एक लोक प्रसिद्ध कहावत है कि जोड़ियां ऊपरवाला ही बनाता है ।शादी के संदर्भ में ख्यात यह कहावत संगीतकार जोड़ी शंकर जयकिशन पर सौ फीसदी खरी उतरती है। निः संदेह यह जोड़ी संगीत की नैसर्गिक प्रतिभा से संपन्न थी और नियति ने ही दोनों को मिलता भी। शंकर जी जहां नृत्य कला,सितार,पियानिं एवं अकोर्डियान बजाने में पारंगत थे तो वहीं जयकिशन जी हारमोनियम वादन में सिद्ध हस्त थे।हिंदी फिल्म संगीत की दुनियां में इस जोड़ी का मिलन ‘ मणि कांचन ‘ सिद्ध हुआ। उल्लेखनीय है कि जयकिशन दाया भाई (4 नवंबर 1932) मुंबई काम की तलाश में आए थे जहां उनकी मुलाकात दक्षिण आंध्र प्रदेश(तेलंगाना) से आए शंकर सिंह रामसिंह(15 अक्टूबर 1922)से गुजराती फिल्म निर्माता चंद्रवदन काम के सिसिले में हुई।शने: शने: यह मुलाकात प्रगाढ़ मेत्री में तब्दील हो गई।विपरीत स्वभाव इसके इन दो व्यक्तित्वों का संगीत के प्रति समर्पित भाव उभयनिष्ठ था। गठीले बदनवाले शंकर जहां धीर गंभीर स्वभाव के थे तो वहीं जयकिशन जी मस्तमौला प्रकृति के
आकर्षक व्यक्तित्व के धनी इंसान थे।,
शंकर जयकिशन के बृहद संगीत के कई आयाम है जो उनको अन्य संगीतकारों स्की तुलना में विशिष्ठ स्थान आसीन करते है।उनके बेमिसाल संगीत को कतिपय शीर्षकों के तहत वर्गीकृत करते हुए सुगमतापूर्वक समझा जा सकता है। ये शीर्षक इस प्रकार ही सकते है जैसे शास्त्रीय रागों पर आधारित गीत,लोक संगीत आधारित,सुकुमार भावाभिव्यक्ती प्रधान गीत,प्रेम व रूमानी भाववाले ,विरह दर्द वाले गीत,समूह गीत,नृत्य प्रधान गीत,ग़ज़ल शैली गीत,कव्वाली शैली गीत,भारतीय संगीत आधारित नृत्य गीत,पाध्छ्यात संगीत आधारित नृत्य गीत,भजन रूपी गीत, बाल गीत,प्रश्न/पहेली नुमा गीत, छेड़ छाड़ वाले गीत,हास्य प्रधान गीत,अनोखे/अटपटे बोल वाले गीत,भारतीय व पाष्छ्यात फ्यूजन गीत आदि।
समग्रहतः यह सुस्पष्ट होता है कि शंकर जयकिशन के बहुरंगी गीतों का एक व्यापक अत्यंत और विस्तृत संसार है जिसने विविध भावों को अनुकूल संगीत धुनों के साथ कुशलता पूर्वक संवारा गया है।इं मनमोहक व कर्णप्रिय गीतों का कलेवर सजाने संवारने में इस संगीत निपुण जोड़ी के दक्ष निर्देशन की भूमिका प्रमुखत : रही है।
लेकिन विविध का संगीत नियोजन करने में दत्ता राम व अरेंजर सेबेस्टियन की भूमिका भी अहम हुआ करती थी साथ ही विभिन्न वाद्ययंत्र वादकों का महती योगदान रहा है,जिनके वाद्यों ने शंकर जयकिशन के गीतों की प्राण वान बनाकर लोकप्रियता के बेमिसाल आयाम प्रदान किए
शंकर जयकिशन के विशाल ऑर्केस्ट्रा में एक से बढ़कर कुशल वाद्य यंत्र वादकों का शुमार रहा । कुछ के नाम उस प्रकार है –
1 पन्नालाल घोष (बांसुरी)
2 लाला गंगवाने ( ढोलक)
3 उस्ताद अली अकबर खां (सरोद)
4 पं राम नारायण (सारंगी)
5 उस्ताद रईस खां (सितार )
6 एस हज़ारा सिंह(इलेक्ट्रिक गिटार)
7 मनोहारी सिंह ( सैक्सोफोन)
8 चिक चॉकलेट (ट्रंपेट)
9 वी बलसारा (हारमोनियम)
10 गुडी सिरवाई( अकिर्डियान)
11 सुमित मित्रा (अकोर्डियान) आदि इत्यादि।
कुल मिलाकर यह कहा जा सकता है कि शंकर जयकिशन का ऑर्केस्ट्रा अत्यंत समृद्ध था उसके भीतर विलक्षण प्रतिभा वाले तथा अपने अपने वाद्यों के वादन में दक्ष कलाकार शामिल थे। इन अति निपुण व दक्ष कलाकारों के समन्वय व सहभागिता से शंकर जयकिशन ने अनगिनत अमर गीतों का सृजन किया।
