It's about the life of a band in one week. Great vigor from Sting and his band infusing his recent solo release and reworked Police tracks to such great effects. Liner NotesIn 1985, when Sting launched his solo career with 'The Dream Of The Blue Turtles', he set in train a second project.

So it's not just a concert movie. His sound is a smooth jazz with a hard edge. Dropped into select stores in the US shortly after the release of The Dream of the Blue Turtles and a Companion peace to a video of the same name it catches Sting and a Great Backing band in action. Arriving as a second solo album, it can't help but feel a little unnecessary, even if the loose, rather infectious performances show what Sting was trying to achieve with his debut.
The others come from shows around Christmas 1985, after the band had played more than eighty shows together. Sting really got carried away with the idea that his supporting crew for Dream of the Blue Turtles was a real jazz band, and technically, he was kind of right.
For Sting, the static pop song was no more. I always resented the fact that the content that would have fit in a single CD used to be sold as two-CD pack. Hopefully it will explain how music is made. If we had tested it properly, perhaps we would have realized the movie is more for the 20- to 35-year-old crowd. We avoided it. Sting cemented his sole career with this tour and despite the egomania started proving he's worth the hype. Arguing, quite correctly, that most movies about rock bands were filmed either at their peak or towards the end of their career, and that most live albums were recorded once a band had an established following Sting decided to break the mould.Sting recruited the band he was to record the Blue Turtles with - Kenny Kirkland (Keyboards), Darryl Jones (Bass), Branford Marsalis (Sax), Omar Hakim (Drums), and Janice Pendarvis and Dollette McDonald on backing vocals in early 1985, and in May that year he relocated to Paris where a series of shows had been booked at the Mogador Theatre.
Apted filmed the band extensively over a nine day period during rehearsals at the Chateau de Courson for the week long series of shows, interviewing all the members of the band, following the set up and lighting of the stage show, press conferences, photo shoots, and finally ample footage of the concerts themselves.Whilst the movie was released in theatres in October 1985 the live album followed in early 1986. Most of the songs run around five minutes long and there are no less than three medleys, two of which marry an old Police number with a tune from Dream. The thing that's interesting about the movie is that most rock films are about bands after they make it big or when they finish. Whereas the 'Bring On The Night' movie concentrated on recording for posterity the birth of a band, this release should be seen as a valuable companion piece. Riffs delivered casually one night became huge motifs the next. This two-record set, taken from the European segment, contains some classic Kenny Kirkland piano improvisations (especially on 'When the World Is Running Down'), some near-brilliant Branford Marsalis (on 'One World', where he quotes the standard 'Let's Fall in Love'), as well as propulsion from the never-let-up rhythm team of drummer Omar Hakim and bassist Darryl Jones.The highlight is an 11-minute medley, 'One World (Not Three)' into 'Love Is the Seventh Wave'.
There's a problem loading this menu right now. We underestimated the drawing power of the album. From it's low key beginning, to it's dark and brooding finale, this is simply terrific. After a couple of listens, I almost regretted waiting so many years to buy this again in a different format: it was a very often played record that I had chosen to boycott, but here it is. I won't be just saying my lines.

He decided to document this period with both a live album and a feature length film. Perhaps the strongest feature to emerge is how well Sting has maintained his extraordinary facility to write great songs over a prolonged period of time. We didn't want the film to look like an MTV version of the album (Sting's hit 'Dream of the Blue Turtles') but realize now we should have used the LP to sell the film. It also analyzes reviews to verify trustworthiness. This could be called hubris (and it will be called that here), especially because the appearance of the live album feels like a way of showcasing Sting's jazz band and jazz chops. But it became a reality very quickly. And it's a character study. Reviewed in the United Kingdom on June 28, 2020. It's not a glorified look at the album or a puff piece for Sting or an extended MTV video. The sound Sting wanted for his jazz band didn't really come out on 'The Dream of the Blue Turtles'. Jackhammer-like drums and Sting's strong vocals power the song along to a rousing finish. I found Bring On The Night as an expensive import double LP over 20 years ago.
Worth checking out. Sting really got carried away with the idea that his supporting crew for Dream of the Blue Turtles was a real jazz band, and technically, he was kind of right. Now that the price is fair for digital content, I finally went for it. A Good album to have on had but not essential.
