Sting only performed on the songs recorded at the Perugia Jazz Festival on 11-07-1987. This also turned out to be the last collaboration between Sting and Gil Evans.
This release is most likely a bootleg, although it was sold in record stores in Europe as an official release. The reason why it can be labelled as a bootleg is the fact that the recording is in mono and has some (vinyl) hiss.
More tracks of the Perugia show appeared on the bootleg Last Session.
