Shankar Jaikishan - Title Theme From Bombay Talkie

Shankar Jaikishan were a duo of composers (Shankar Raghuvanshi and Jaikishan Panchal) who composed music for the Hindi film industry from the 1940s right up until the 70s. Jazz (or jazz influenced music) gets its fair share of coverage on this blog, so it's worth mentioning that these guys are credited with pioneering 'Indo-Jazz'. Their melodies have been described as "everlasting" and "immortal" and this theme from the film Bombay Talkie is no exception, a familiar and yet curious melody; charming, mellow and memorable.
