One of the most remarkable of the Southern Indian violin players. Born in 1930, he studied initially with his father, V.R. Gopala Iyer. By the age of 12, he had advanced to accompanying other musicians. In 1965 at the Edinburgh Festival he so impressed Yehudi Menuhin that the maestro presented him with his own violin. Jayaraman is a soloist, accompanist — for example, for the classical vocalist Maharajapuram Santhanam — and composer. He recorded a very interesting jugalbandi album with the Hindustani sarod player Amjad Ali Khan called South Meets North (G/ECSD 2932) in 1983 which deserves a CD reissue. On it they perform "Bhapali" ("Mohanam") and "Malkauns" ("Hindolam"). Other releases by him are to be found on AVM, Kaveri and Oriental.
