“Reclamation” with its 17 tracks melodies, nu jazz, world music and suave tones all in one, was recently released by Two Rivers Records.

Its talented artist, bassist Darwish, has made this debut solo album a very eclectic piece of work.

I believe Darwish’s voice makes the album, in fact I dare any of the listeners not to fall in love with it! And if the above is not enough, the compositions and arrangements are beautiful, a mixture of ethereal and light pop accompanied by an underlying sense of forlorn and philosophical reflection.

And then, there are the lyrics, of course! There is something for everyone: city life, love, loss, longing. Tales within a tale.
