Sting a touch of jazz cd
Broken Music by StingHaving been a songwriter most of my life, condensing my ideas and emotions into short rhyming couplets and setting them to music, I had never really considered writing a book. But upon arriving at the reflective age of fifty, I found myself drawn, for the first time, to write long passages that were as stimulating and intriguing to me as any songwriting I had ever done.
And so Broken Music began to take shape. It is a book about the early part of my life, from childhood through adolescence, right up to the eve of my success with the Police. It is a story very few people know.
I had no interest in writing a traditional autobiographical recitation of everything that’s ever happened to me. Instead I found myself drawn to exploring specific moments, certain people and relationships, and particular events which still resonate powerfully for me as I try to understand the child I was, and the man I became.

Richly diverse in musical content and visually captivating, 'Sting: 25 Years' is a compelling tribute to the restless spirit of an artist who continues to evolve and explore new musical territory. Review from Associated Press by Dolores Barclay Sting's three-CD box set offers an intriguing portrait of the artist in his quarter-century quest to marry the many flavors of music. Bundling his early and later work together presents an excellent chance to really get a clear reading of how he has tweaked pop music and expanded its core.
Sting - leader and bassist of the Police, sometime movie star, and now a solo recording artist with his own handpicked jazz ensemble - has developed one of the most artfully controlled pop songwriting voices of the last decade. It is a voice that wants to appeal to everyone and at the same time to be taken very seriously with its message of pacifism and global unity. But Sting's music doesn't simply preach this secular gospel. It wants to embody the ''one world'' concept by stylistically transcending time and place. In his continuing search to refine a truly international pop voice, Sting has adopted a childlike singing style that hybridizes West Indian and English inflections and developed a modal melodic signature that connects Anglican liturgical music to West African chant.
