Storyline

A documentary about the making of the first Sting album. Not only is some time spent in the studio (much of was recorded in an interesting mansion), but there is also some interesting information about what was going on in the lives of the members of his band during that time, including Sting's child being born.

The music is great as always with Sting.
7 February 2003 | by mifunesamuraiSee all my reviews

This is not a revealing doco. It's a celebration of the artist, Sting. On this tour he manages to round up some fine Jazz musicians and slot them right into his creative process. A few insightful moments are delivered but in the end it has nothing new to offer but a free peak into the workings of another creative mind in progress.
