"From 23 November in Mumbai and New Delhi, jazz and India will come together again for their 29th festival, now called Jazz Utsav. ... [The first year of the festival, 1978], the emcee was Voice of America’s Willis Conover, who also produced jazz concerts at places such as the White House. 'His soothing voice and charming demeanour on stage won over everybody,' says festival committee member Prakash Thadani." livemint.com, 16 November 2007.
