‘Latin Ala G’ – Union Square / BMG
Gilbert O’Sullivan topped the UK and US singles charts in the 70’s, becoming the biggest-selling solo artist in the world. Today, he continues to be regarded as one of the world’s finest songwriters, his songs covered by artists from across the musical spectrum, including Morrissey, Neil Diamond, Diana Krall and Michael Bublé.
Recorded in Madrid, with a cast of exemplary Spanish musicians, the album stems from O’Sullivan’s love of Latin music from the early 60’s, when Brazilian artists such as Astrud Gilberto and Sergio Mendes began to gain worldwide popularity.
