Sting and Shaggy: not such a surprising tandem! In 1979 Police’s leader released Reggatta de Blanc, a second album under the Jamaican influence that fed the reggae-punky wave at the time of the Clash, PIL, Ruts Madness, as well as Bob Marley himself. Gordon Summer, who has always been fascinated by Caribbean rhythms, never truly broke away from them. So when his manager Martin Kierszenbaum, who also works with Shaggy, let him listen to his next dancehall hit song, the bassist made the trip from his Malibu home to do a featuring. The understanding between the Jamaican artist and the ex-Police singer was stellar and the track became the single Don't Make Me Wait. And six months later, 44/876, the tandem album was complete. From Crooked Tree to Dreaming In The USA − which restored the US image −, the two companions gave us a most surprising album that blends reggae, dancehall and catchy pop, without falling into ridiculous clichés. “This is exactly the record the world needs right now”, according to Orville Richard Burrell a.k.a.

Hi-Res Booklet
“This is my life in Songs. Some of them reconstructed, some of them refitted, some of them reframed, and all of them with a contemporary focus.” That is the description of Sting’s latest record, making this more than just a collection of his biggest hits (either solo or with The Police). It was a particular kind of rhythm that he wanted to work in, so as to eliminate the ‘dated’ feel to some of his songs (according to Sting himself). More striking than the original, the drums of Demolition Man, If You Love Someone Set Them Free, Desert Rose and even Englishman in New York will take listeners by surprise. Regarding this famous tribute to gay icon Quentin Crisp, the song released in 1988 is seasoned by pizzicatos and a soprano sax solo.As for the other ballads, it’s more in the singer’s texture and vocal prowess that the reinvention is most noticeable. Less pure but more structured than before, Sting’s voice carries a new dimension in Fields of Gold and Fragile, two songs that also prove that the Englishman’s talent as a melodist has not aged a bit. The same goes for tracks taken from his Police years too, in particular Message in a Bottle and Walking on the Moon, as well as the ubiquitous Roxanne (presented here as a live version). © Nicolas Magenham/Qobuz

Booklet
Live in Berlin werd opgenomen op 21 september 2010, toen Sting in het midden was van zijn Symphonicities tour, en is verkrijgbaar als cd/dvd set, op Blue Ray disc, of als gecondenseerde selectie op 1 CD. Het biedt verdere orkestrale interpretaties van Stings oeuvre, met een gezonde dosis nummers van het album Symphonicities (2010) en met ruimte voor andere hoogtepunten uit Stings carrière, zowel obscuur als meer bekend. Vergeleken met het studioalbum lijken de symfonische uitspattingen niet zo overweldigend. De aandacht wordt meer gelegd op Sting en zijn nummers, niet de orkestraties. De show is deskundig afgepast, waardoor Live in Berlin voor de langdurige fans een gesofisticeerd thuisdiner is. ~ Stephen Thomas Erlewine

Gezien Stings brede ambities en interesses was het slechts een kwestie van tijd voordat hij een album zou opnemen met een orkest. Maar Symphonicities verrast doordat het georkestreerde versies van zijn oude nummers brengt in plaats van nieuw werk. Af en toe verandert dit de kracht van een nummer, maar zelden de intentie. Uiteraard zijn de Police-nummers het meest verandert: "Every Little Thing She Does Is Magic" krijgt een opgewekt maar dromerig arrangement, "Roxanne" verruilt het reggaeritme voor een lome, verleidelijke tred. Het is eveneens op deze bekende nummers dat Stings engagement het meest tastbaar is. Hij krijgt overduidelijk nieuwe energie van deze rijke setting, waardoor dit zijn meest bevredigende album in tijden is geworden. ~ Stephen Thomas Erlewine
