Madhav Chari, Jazz, Museum Theatre

If the note in The Hindu slipped your eye,

On November 16, 7 p.m., a jazz concert, “Parisian Thoroughfares”, will be presented by the Madhav Chari trio, featuring jazz musicians Mourad Benhammou on drums and Fabien Marcoz on bass at the Museum Theatre, Egmore. Benhammou and Marcoz are considered among the best young French jazz musicians in Paris. The concert is sponsored by the French Embassy in India and Alliance Francaise.

Madhav Chari is different. To begin with, he is a scholar (literally — he was pursuing a Ph.D. in mathematics in Illinois when he decided that music is his true calling) and is well grounded both in the practice of contemporary jazz and in its history, folklore, and roots, in the blues, ragtime, New Orleans creole music, west African rhythms, and, of course, European classical music. His technique has the solidity of a classical pianist, while the music he plays is something the best contemporary jazz musicians in New York will identify with. In a word, he groks jazz.

He [Madhav] once told me that one reason he lives in Chennai is that one gets to know all kinds of interesting people here that one wouldn’t in most other cities. To me, he himself is an example.

Who is Madhav Chari?
