Remarks:The title track for this collection - 'My Funny Valentine' - is a terrific reading of this much-loved standard and Sting presents a vocal interpretation that is heartfelt and warm. Many associate this song with the late great Miles Davis. The slight break heard in Sting's voice during the first verse was left as is, much in the way Miles' emotional performances of this favorite ballad were often articulated. There's also a 4-bar musical nod to Miles by the incomparable Herbie Hancock during his solo turn, with support from Steve Jordan on drums that is both subtle & tasteful.
