I'm not going to go into detail here so I'll just say that this is a wonderfully diverse and inventive selection of jazz and fusion numbers from Andy Summers, who is undoubtedly one of the tastiest, most sensitive players on the planet. I'm playing it straight away a second time as I write this, it's that good!

The musicians supporting Andy in this enterprise are all first rate and the synergy between them is magnificent. The orchestration on many of the tracks is wonderful and it's so nice to hear real cellos and violins etc. rather than the sampled stuff one so often comes across these days.

I have seven Andy Summers albums, having first discovered his solo talents when I bought The Golden Wire many years ago. Like that album, Peggy's Blue Skylight is definitely one of my favourites. More purchases are in the pipeline.

Highly recommended!

I for one am guilty of neglecting Mr Summers (quite distinguished) career after his departure from The Police, and I apologise to him.
Time to put things in order. Like Sting (one wonders who got the idea/inspiration first), Andy has spent a lot of time expanding his musical palette and exploring jazz. This doesn't surprise me. With talents always obviously well above the demands of pop, jazz offers the more and accomplished & serious musician a greater challenge and fewer boundaries (not to say commercial considerations).
Having explored the work of Theolonius Monk on 1999 's Green Chimneys, as if that wasn't a big enough challenge (I would suggest Monk is one of the greatest and complex jazz composers of all time), Peggy's Blue Skylight contains all covers of the enigmatic Charles Mingus, and, refreshingly, the slightly more obscure side of the man too.
Working with such renowned and diverse musicians as trumpeter Randy Brecker, the Kronos Quartet, Deborah Harry, rapper Q Tip and Jazz Passengers Curtis Fowlkes, Roy Nathanson and Rob Thomas, this is Mingus with a contemporary slant, and an amazing variety of styles and influences; reggae, rock, funk, gypsy jazz, R&B, chamber music, tango and conga.
Often times beautiful, sometimes dark, the creative daring and instrumental ingenuity showed in both Andy's arrangements and playing is stunning, the rhythmic & melodic complexity and stylistic diversity of his music showing that while these are not his compositions, he has clearly found his own sense of the music and done himself considerable justice.

Yet again Andy Summers manages to push the boundaries of what should be listened to to even greater heights. I keep looking back to "The Golden Wire" and wishing that he would do something so different and yet so good and here, at last, it is. From the Q-Tip rap to the much talked about Husky voice of Debbie Harry I sat amazed but the title track blew me away. This CD is Andy Summers at his best. Buy it, sit back and enjoy.
