Ali Akhbar Khan: The son of influential Hindustani musician Allaudin Khan, Ali Akbar Khan was one of the Eastern world's greatest musicians. A master of the sarod, a 25-stringed, lute-like, Indian instrument, Khan brought the Northern Indian classical music to the international stage. A five-time Grammy nominee, Khan was called, by Yehudi Menuhin, "an absolute genius, the greatest musician in the world." Tracing his ancestral roots to Mian Tansen, a 16th century musician in the court of Emperor Akbar, Khan began studying music at the age of three.

There is absolutely no need to describe anything about 'Ustad Ali Akbar Khan'. However, In simple way, I would reveal again, He is undisputed 'Sarod' emperor of the 20th century. In this particular release, we'll have a rare and great chance to listen to his early recordings. As an young man, he performed so many times for All India Radio from late 30's to late 60's and this particular release gives us a rare and great chance to listen some of those recordings which were selected between 1956 to 1967. Unfortunately not much information is available on these recordings and they have not even furnished who accompanied him on Tabla in these recordings. But during those years, few tabla players like Kanai Dutta, Shankar Ghosh, Mahapurush Misra, Shashi Bellari, Nikhil Ghosh, Chatur Lal, Kishan Maharaj etc were actively participated with Ustad Ali Akbar Khan, so surely some of them would have performed on these recordings.
