Mansur was well known for his command over a large number of rare (aprachalit) ragas such as Shuddh Nat, Asa Jogiya, Hem Nat, Lachchhasakh, Khat and Bahaduri Todi, as well as his constant, mercurial improvisations in both melody and metre without ever losing the emotional content of the song. Pt. Mansur wrote an autobiographical book titled Nanna Rasayatre (ನನ್ನ ರಸಯಾತ್ರೆ) in Kannada, which has been translated into English as a book titled My Journey in Music by his son, Rajshekhar Mansur. Pt. Mansur is a recipient of the Padma Vibhushan, one of the highest civilian awards of India. Pt.

Mansur hailed from Dharwad in North Karnataka, which is home to other outstanding musicians like Bhimsen Joshi and Gangubai Hangal. His home in Dharwad has now been converted into a small museum in his memory. "Listening to Mansur was an intellectual treat transcending mere entertainment."
