Sting took a break from the recording session for the album "Nothing Like The Sun" and performed a show with Gil Evans and his orchestra in a stadium in Perúgia. The media attention for this event was reflected by the fact that Rai Uno, the most popular Italian public TV channel broadcast it live during prime time.The Umbria Jazz 87 Festival was held from 10-07-1987 to 19-07-1987.

On March 20, 1988 legendary jazz composer/pianist Gil Evans died at the age of 75 after complications during an operation in Mexico. This was about eight months after the show in Perugia.

Track 8 is actually Synchronicity.
wierd sound to this cd which i now know is due to someone being too heavy with the noise reduction
the 3LP version of this show has a more natural sound
