Pandit Ravi Shankar died yesterday. For those of you who aren't familiar with his work, he is best known in the West as the musician who brought Indian music to The Beatles, but he was so much more than just that. He was a brilliant master of his art - experimenting and playing with musicians around the world right up to the last.

I didn't know at 7, when I saw (and at that age sat though and loved!) the film of The Concert For Bangladesh, that Indian music and film would become one of my life-long passions. But truly one of the great interests of my life started with listening to his music. So, thank you for that, and thank you for all the years of music.

RIP Ravi-ji...

I saw him in concert once and had an opportunity to meet him (albeit briefly). He was a kind and gracious man, as well as an outstanding artist.

The best moment in "The Concert for Bangladesh" is Billy Preston's church-inspired tour-de-force, "That's the Way God Planned It." I have watched this many times, and am never disappointed:

I was enjoying his recordings in the Fall of 1962 when I was an early admissions student at the University of Wisconsin. I was fifteen.
