Sting Jo Lawry live in Berlin

A CD/ DVD combo of Sting's 2010 performance in Berlin.

The ratings (Amazon) and reviews (all over the web) are as 5 star as ever. Not just for Sting but for his line up of fellow musicians, and orchestra too for this tour (The Royal Philharmonic).

Sting's core group, consisting of Ira Coleman (bass), David Cossin and Rhani Krija (percussion), the ever present Dominic Miller (guitar) and Jo Lawry (vocals), are outstanding, but it's worth singling out the talent that is Jo Lawry. Two tracks in particular showcase her superbly, and both are duets with Sting.

On 'Whenever I Say Your Name' she comfortably fills the part originally provided by the powerful Mary J. Blige - and on 'You Will Be My Ain True Love' the combination of her voice with Sting's provides a sublime result. Branford Marsalis peerless on sax :)

(While primarily known for his work in jazz as the leader of the Branford Marsalis Quartet, he also performs frequently as a soloist with classical ensembles and has led the group Buckshot LeFonque.)
