With only a few moments left in 2012, I wanted to take one last trip – for now, at least – down the nostalgia train. As I mentioned before, as a child I was a big fan of the Police, and in turn, I was a fan of Sting. I rememberthe documentary film on Sting’s solo jazz/pop project, Bring on the Night quite fondly. 

I think it offers a pretty fascinating look into the creative process – especially the songwriting process. Admittedly, Sting comes off a little pretentious here but the real stars, in my mind are a young, brash and at times very funny Branford Marsalis and Kenny Kirkland, who died a little over a decade after the movie.
