Icon: Sting & the Police

By Wayne Robins, Contributor

It was early 1979. The Police's debut album, Outlandos d'Amour had just been released. The band was on their round of debut performances in the United States, playing such showcase clubs as the Bottom Line in Manhattan and My Father's Place in Roslyn, Long Island. Most everyone in those 300-500 seaters who saw the Anglo-American trio of Stewart Copeland on drums, Andy Summers on guitar and Gordon "Sting" Sumner on bass and lead vocals -… more »

They Say All Music Guide

In a similar vein as his 1999 release Green Chimneys: The Music of Thelonious Monk, guitarist Summers now offers tribute to jazz pioneer Charles Mingus. The collection is a little cobbled together, with an ill-conceived rap from Q-Tip over “Goodbye Pork Pie Hat” and a sparse, unfunky reading of “Cumbia Jazz Fusion,” but the former Policeman’s bright guitar work works hard at tying it all together. Making more admirable guest spots are Randy Brecker bringing his crossover jazz trumpet to “Boogie Stop Shuffle,” Deborah Harry singing on “Weird Nightmare,” and the genre-bending Kronos Quartet performing a string arrangement of the final track “Myself.” While at times overproduced and slick, Summers must be commended for approaching Mingus’ daunting music head on and adapting it as his own. – Zac Johnson
