WITH NAUSHAD SB.
Naushad sb...the king of the Indian music has ever been a dream for the singers to work with, Mohammed Aziz met this legend in a party and introduced himself as a greatest fan of him and he was surprised and shivered with emotions when Naushad sb said that he knows him and appraised his style of singing. Mohammed Aziz told that though I am working with almost all the glittering names in the music world but I am incomplete in my career unless I could get an opportunity to sing at least one line under your direction.And that was the turning point of his career when Naushad sb offered him to sing all the songs of Aawaz De Kahan Hai.... And after the recording of the song ‘Rulaane ko aansu’ everybody was speechless in the studio, Naushad sb told that “though Rafi sb was in my mind when I tuned it but you have done a complete justification to this song” and the touching quality of his voice led Naushad sb to use him in two more films and several serial’s songs.
WITH MELODY QUEEN LATA JI
Mohammed Aziz met The Nightingale of Indian film music, the indisputed queen Lata Mangeshkar at the recording of Prem Granth music by Anu Malik but the film could not see the screen of the cinemas and then came Aag aur Shola when he sang with Lata ji, this number became a great hit and after that he sang some memorable numbers i.e Baali Umar ne Mera Haal Woh kiya, Meethi meethi sardi hai, Main hoon khush rang hina, Jaane do jaane do mujhe jana hai etc. And after every recording Lata ji used to compliment him “ Munna Bhai aap ne mujh se bhi achcha gaaya” He was not only a co-singer but he became a team member of Lataji and very often used to go on World’s Tour altogether.
WITH KISHORE KUMAR JI
The journey of Mohammed Aziz has been very remarkable and very memorable, he worked with those artistes who had been a dream for him one time but after stepping in to the film industry and proving himself he happened to be the ultimate choice of not only the music directors but the co-singers too and here comes the name of the great Kishore Kumar. Md.Aziz sang 12 songs with Kishore Kumar in Himmat Aur Mehnat, Zamana and Giraftaar etc. and all of them became very popular.
THE MEMORABLE TRIO
There was always a very special bonding and understanding amongst this trio and Laxmi-Pyare have a firm believe upon their artiste and as a result they used his voice in Khatron ke Khiladi where he sang for the three heroes Dharmendra, Sanjay Dutt and Chunkey Pandey and his rendition was superb to reach the expectations of the music directors.
Working with Laxmi-Pyare was not only a remarkable and memorable experience but a very innovative experience, the trio created such songs which are not merely a song but a torchlight to the young generation and to support as a friend in a bad phase like
Duniya mein kitna gham hai, (Amrit)
Har karam apna karenge ai watan tere liye.(Karma),
Aaj kal yaad kuchh aur rehta nahi (Nagina)
Dosti ke geet main gaata hoon (Sheesh Naag)
Yeh aan Tiranga hai, yeh shaan Tiranga hai (Tiranga)
And how can one forget the tribute song of Karodh?
“Na fankaar tujhsa tere baad aaya
Mohammed Rafi tu bahut yaad aaya”
It was the best and the biggest tribute to Md.Rafi sb by Laxmi-Pyare ji, Mohammed Aziz
And the greatest Amitabh Bachchan ji, the lyrics was written by Anand Bakshi ji.
Being an ardent lover of Rafi sahib, Laxmi-Pyare ji wanted to give such a tribute to the Greatest legend which would be remembered for years with and years to come, they asked Anand Bakshi ji to write such a kind of lyrics which can fill the Eyes with tears and then the question arises that who can justify the song with his melancholious voice. A team voting was done with several names and amazingly everybody took the name of Md.Aziz, as he was not only the first but the last choice. Mohammed Aziz sang the maximum numbers of songs during his career for Laxmikant-Pyarelal ji.
Mohammed Aziz is reigning the Indian film industry since 1984 and during his career he worked with almost all the noted Music Directors and Male and Female singers. In the list of Male co-singers he has sung with Kishore Kumar, Mahindra Kapoor, Suresh Wadekar, Shailendra Singh, Manhar Udhas, Pankaj Udhas, Sukhwinder Singh, Amit Kumar, Nitin Mukesh, Kumar Sanu, Udit Narayan, Sudesh Bhonsle and Sonu Nigam.

He made a pretty good duo with Anuradha Paudwal and sang maximum numbers of duet song with Anuradha Paudwal.
Being a perfect romantic voice for the romantic heroes he has been the most favourite voice of the actors i.e Dilip Kumar saheb,Dev Anand saheb, Shammi Kapoor sb, Raj Kumar ji, Sunil Dutt ji, Bharat Bhushan ji, Dharmendra ji, Rajesh Khanna ji, Amitabh Bachchan ji, Jeetendra ji, Rishi Kapoor, Mithun Chakraborty, Anil Kapoor, Sunny Deol, Govinda, Akshay Kumar, Chunkey Pandey, Shahrukh Khan, Salman Khan, Aamir Khan, Ajay Devgan, etc. And still very aspiring to work with those Music Directors with whom he has not worked till date and even with the fresh talents, the music directors and the singers to achieve the new heights.
WITH ASHA BHONSLE JI
‘Giraftaar’ had been a unique experience where he worked with the great Asha ji, Bappi Lahiri and Indivar ji and for the first time with all of them. Asha ji was very happy with the recording of the song ‘Sohni kudi’ and said you remind me of Rafi sahib with your style and body language.
