Info for My Favourite Stings



Being a jazz musician is a schizoid state. On the one hand, it defines you and limits you, on the other hand, it is an existence building itself up from everything. I was born in 1976 in Hungary. The music scene of the ‘80s behind the iron curtain was excessively controlled. I was lucky, because my parents understood and loved music, and they tried to get foreign editions. And true, we listened to jazz more than any other genre at home. I admit, I also loved the early albums of Iron Maiden, AC/DC and Deep Purple. As girls became more and more interesting, I started enjoying calmer, more melodic and quieter music. I listened to more and more Queen and Sting. I felt the power they radiated, but now I understood the feelings behind them too. Of course, I didn’t understand the lyrics, but the arch of their melodies, their musicality was much better shaped, more lyrical and sensual than the rock music before them. In retrospect, I have to say that it was almost a straight road that led me to the music of Sting in my teens. As a kind of Holy Grail, it had everything: I could hear the harder, punk-like riffs, the infinitely simplified, catchy melody and the jazz in it, thanks to Branford Marsalis. I didn’t know the music of Police too well, apart from one or two hits. I was much more familiar with the solo career of Sting, which is normal for my generation. The recordings were done in a single day overall. There were only 2 songs that we recorded later, but the whole time we spent recording wasn’t more than 10 hours. The biggest challenge was to make the songs truly mine. Gabor Varga
