has composed ghazals for TV serial Noorjehan written
by prolific Nida Fazli , the songs set in the 15th
century Mughal period ambience. While the influences range
from the Middle Eastern and Afghani to Kashmiri and Rajasthani,
the styles cover ghazals, qawwalis, bhajans , north Indian
and simple ballads.
Aziz as a composer always believes in complete creative
freedom, it is this that makes superlative results possible.
Talat had once for a qawwali song auditioned several good
singers who just could not fulfill his vision. He wanted to
feel the genuine, spiritual qawwali. In search of the right
singers he travelled all the way to Sambhal, a remote village
near Moradabad. There he discovered an anonymous pair of singers.
They had natural talent without any technical expertise at
the mike. Talat worked on them and eventually got fabulous
results. This anonymous pair was Sarfaraz Chisty and
always says, "I am a ruthless composer, I sing only those
songs which do not suit someone else better." Singers including
Sonu Nigam, Jaspinder Narula & Sadhana Sargam, all
of whom sound different under Talat's baton. Talat gives full
credits to his singers for fulfilling the needs of the song.
Aziz, Jaspinder Narula,
Sadhana Sargam and Sonu Nigam
is very particular about his decision to maintain a good degree
of authenticity in the music in every way. Talat Aziz
has composed music for tele-serials like 'Deewar', 'Baaz',
'Adhikaar', 'Ghutan', 'Sailaab', 'Aashirwaad' and the
magnum opus 'Noorjehan'. Talat has also recorded an
English song, 'So happy tonight' for a Hollywood composer
David Wilson. The music for 'Sailaab' in which
the song, 'Apni Marzi se Kahan', sung by Jagjit
Singh was also composed by Talat Aziz.
