The story of Finding Carlton – Uncovering the Story of JAzz in India – illuminates the linkage between jazz and Bollywood.. of course Bollywood borrowed freely from other Western sources, and continues to do so even today – We love it..Jazz is alive … well , in Bollywood
We came across a terrific blogsite www.itwofs.com that works diligently to “keep the music honest” and details hundreds of “straight lifts and inspired by’s” that show up in India’s vast trove of commercial films, and even a few “super hit” commercials..and we respect Karthik for his diligence and hard work, in a world where nobody seems to care much about respecting source material anymore.
So we thought that the readers of this blog would be upto identifying some of the obvious Jazz Lifts !! take the Blue Rhythm Quiz , listen to these clips , and share your answers on the blog by clicking Leave a Comment,..FIRST THREE TO RESPOND ALL CORRECT – A FINDING CARLTON FILM POSTER
