Sting - The Dream of the Blue Turtles
Feb 4, 2018

The Dream of the Blue Turtles is as much a work of world literature as it is a pop album. A brilliant pairing of stories and feelings with performances of nuance and virtuosity. The album occupies a unique sonic space as well- you are unlikely to hear music that sounds like this anywhere outside of Sting's canon. The jazz-inflected playing of Branford Marsalis, Omar Hakim, Kenny Kirkland, and others is transplanted to a landscape of lush 80s adult contemporary synthesizers and ambiance. Gorgeous, superb, and moving.
