Sting recruited jazz musicians from Miles Davis’s band, Art Blakey’s band, and Weather Report and made the album at Eddie Grant’s Barbados studio. The album title came to Sting in a dream he had his first night in Barbados. At the time, he called The Dream Of The Blue Turtles the most refined piece of work I’ve done. The Dream of the Blue Turtles Q&A. Featuring Darryl Jones. Producers Peter Smith & Sting. Writers Sergei Prokofiev & Sting. Bass Guitar Darryl Jones.
And that's the problem with the record: with every measure, every verse, Sting cries out for the respect of a composer, not a pop star, and it gets to be a little overwhelming when taken as a whole. As a handful of individual cuts - "Fortress," "Consider Me Gone," "If You Love Somebody," "Children's Crusade" - he proves that he's subtler and craftier than his peers, but only when he reins in his desire to show the class how much he's learned.
