If you use a top quality classical orientated HiFi system, this release is a must. Recorded live for an American TV special, assembling an eclectic mix guest contributors, Botti effortlessly blends the tone of his 1940's Martin Committee to a wide genre of musical styles. The incredible Billy Kitson (drums) and Billy Childs (piano), form the core of the ensemble, backed by the Boston Pops orchestra. My system really picked up on the live atmosphere of the venue. A jazzy "Seven Days", showcases the strength and control of Sting's vocal talent, and the final track, "Time to Say Goodbye" is beautiful and emotional to the extreme. Add the fact that the CD comes with an extended DVD of the concert, it's a great value release. If you own a good quality sight and sound AV system, I reckon the Blue Ray version would be suburb.
Highly recommended to Jazz, swing, classical and Sting fans alike.
