Joseph Malik Aquarius Songs
- Words: Luciana Lopez
- Label: Compost
From the horns that open "Aquarius Song" to the live recording of "Race Relations" at the album's end, Malik's sophomore solo effort delivers the kind of sweet soul that recalls some of the greats of the genre. Singer/songwriter Malik, a former promoter and DJ in Scotland, has recorded with others under various monikers, but it wasn't until 2002 that he released a solo debut, Diverse, in 2002. The intervening two years have been well spent-the current album is a mix of jazz, soul and various ethnic music genres, such as tango, whose intricate hand-clapping he incorporates on "Diablo."
