Album of the Day

Sting: Bring on the Night. Right after The Police split up, Sting did a pretty bold thing in putting together a band of jazz guys to record his first solo album, The Dream of the Blue Turtles. As good as that album is with its pop-jazz hybrid, the follow-up live album is just dynamite. The jazz guys get room to roam live and the re-engineered Police tunes are fantastic. The accompanying film (which doesn't appear to have made its way to DVD, which is a shame) is also great.
