An intelligent behind-the-scene rockumentary featuring Brit
Sting at the height of his popularity, after he left
The renowned jazz musicians included Branford Marsalis on sax, Kenny Kirkland on keyboards, Darryl Jones on bass, and Omar Hakim on drums. Janice Pendarvis and Dolette McDonald provided the backup vocals. Under Sting's direction the group seemed to be having a blast and felt confident they were making good sounds.
It was fun watching all this talent get it on together.
It features such tracks as Bring On The Night /When The World Is Running Down, You Make The Best Of What's Still Around, One World (Not Three) / Love Is The Seventh Wave.
