Manohari Singh, Indian saxophonist, died of a heart attack.he was ,79

Manohari Singh was an Indian saxophonist and a key member of Bollywood film composer Rahul Dev Burman's team. He died after a cardiac arrest on July 13, 2010 in Mumbai.

(March 8, 1931 – July 13, 2010)

In addition to playing the alto saxophone, Manohari Singh was also the music assistant and arranger for R. D. Burman. He has played the saxophone in many R. D. Burman compositions. He played in the well-known hit "Gaata rahe mera dil", composed by S.D. Burman, from the movie Guide. He has also played for songs in the recent movies Chalte Chalte (2003) and Veer Zaara (2004).

Born in Kolkata in a family of musicians, Manohari Singh watched his father - originally from Nepal - and uncle play in music studios for films and in night-clubs. After trying his hand at the English key flute, the clarinet and the mandolin, Manohari Singh finally chose the saxophone as his forte. His first break was in 1958 with Sachin Dev Burman as a saxophonist for the movie Sitaron se aage. He has also released an album titled Sax appeal containing saxophone renditions of various Hindi movie music tracks[1]

Manohari Singh is said to deeply cherish his gold-plated Selmer saxophone (bought in New York in 1969) and tries to avoid getting even his own finger-prints on it [2].

He was felicitated at the Yashwantrao Chavan Natyagruha (auditorium) on March 19, 2006, on the occasion of his 75 birthday[3]

He was also awarded with "Memorable Contribution to Music Award" at the Tata Indicom Radio Mirchi Music Awards function held on 27 March 2009.

He also played in a Telugu movie named "Raavoi Chandamama", music composed by Manisharma and Nagarjuna acted in this movie and Jayanth C. Paranjee directed it.

Manohari Singh died on July 13, 2010 in Mumbai.[4]
