Annotation

Inglaterra is Alex's fifth album and is the latest chapter in his musical journey which began in the mid-90’s when he started to play salsa piano in London bands. He then went on to experiment with latin jazz, took a trip to Havana to record his second album Anglo Cubano, worked on combining modern R&B with salsa on the R&B Latino album, learnt about Afro-Colombian music and how to mix it with mainstream jazz on Aventuras and to complete the circle have now recorded a Alex Wilson-style salsa album Inglaterra.

All the tracks on the album are for the dance floor (He set his jazziness aside for another album) and all are salsa or reggaeton mixed with the influences encountered during his career.

So, from the song made famous by Nat King Col and George Benson, Nature Boy, to the original salsa-soul composition, Show Me, to a version of Chaka Khan’s Ain’t Nobody and the bhangra-salsa sound of Oh Kuri this album encapsulates the vibrancy of the London scene today … enjoy
