X Tracks: Best of Andy Summers covers the years 1997-2002, essentially his stint at RCA. If you haven't followed his post-Police career, you might be somewhat surprised at his jazz leanings. Texturally, he flirts with smooth jazz at times, but his penchant for dissonance keeps him out of that camp. There are a handful of original compositions alongside pieces by Monk, Mingus, and Wayne Shorter. Q-Tip's reading from Mingus' Beneath the Underdog on "Goodbye Porkpie Hat" does little to add to the tune, beyond differentiating it from Jeff Beck's version, but the way Summers handles Mingus' "Boogie Stop Shuffle" with an added horn section is great. Similarly, Sting's turn on vocals on the overdone "'Round Midnight" is serviceable, but the way Summers digs into Monk's bag of dissonance and crazy intervals on "Think of One" shows a deep understanding and feel for Monk's music.

An atmospheric collection of compositions that would be the perfect backdrop for vistas of sunsets in exotic lands, Summers went a little more mainstream with this release than he had with Mysterious Barricades and his two projects with Robert Fripp. The textures here have more in common with his work as guitarist for the Police, though his playing is better highlighted in this solo context.

Though perhaps best (or at least better) known for his work with the Police, guitarist Andy Summers seems to be doing rather well for himself. He may not be filling arenas and attracting screaming teenage girls, but their mothers can scream pretty loud as well, and as it is to them that Summers now appears to be playing, his maturity and ability to look forward work in his favor. Backed by bassist Tony Levin and drummer Gregg Bissonette, Summers works well as a frontman. A captivatingly atmospheric voyage round Summers's bleached jazz roots. Dominated unsurprisingly by Summers's intricate fretwork, these 11 instrumentals comprise chiefly originals and homages to jazz maestros.

Many a guitar fan would have predicted that a summit between legendary guitarists Andy Summers (the Police) and Robert Fripp (King Crimson) would result in a guitar solofest. But the music on their first collaboration together, I Advance Masked, stresses guitar textures and moods over indulgent soloing. Although the recording sessions weren't entirely enjoyable for Summers (who was experiencing marital problems at the time), some very beautiful music can be found on the resulting album.

Many a guitar fan would have predicted that a summit between legendary guitarists Andy Summers (the Police) and Robert Fripp (King Crimson) would result in a guitar solofest. But the music on their first collaboration together, I Advance Masked, stresses guitar textures and moods over indulgent soloing. Although the recording sessions weren't entirely enjoyable for Summers (who was experiencing marital problems at the time), some very beautiful music can be found on the resulting album. The music for the track "Girl on a Swing" does an excellent job of conveying the song's title in one's mind, and the duo's guitars weave wonderful polyrhythmic guitar lines throughout "China – Yellow Leader." "The Truth of Skies" is an atmospheric piece, created by a wash of keyboard sounds and guitar dissonance, while "New Marimba" would have sounded right at home on an early-'80s King Crimson album. I Advance Masked has a dreamlike quality to it, and is definitely not typical rock music. It's highly recommended to fans of these two great and original guitarists. ~ by Greg Prato

Guitarist Andy Summers long ago shed his Police-man's uniform to take a stab at being a jazz fusion guitarist, and this is his toughest test, tackling 13 of Thelonious Monk's most well known pieces. His backing band has some considerable talent; drummer Peter Erskine, organist Joey DeFrancesco, trumpeter Walt Fowler and cellist Hank Roberts are outstanding jazz musicians, and prove their mettle throughout. The CD overall is inconsistent, starting with an out-of-tune bass and an inaccurate reading of the title track.

Andy's 1997 follow-up to the popular Ear X-tacy CD features more classic instrumental songs in addition to Andy's vocal debut on 6 tracks. The powerful Night to Remember, heavy-grinding Wishing Well, and the neo-classical classic Groove or Die only begin to shed light on Andy's wide-ranging musical agenda. This CD highlights a natural evolution in Andy's writing and arranging.

Andy Summers remained an active and creative artist in the years before the historic reunion with The Police in 2007. His output of solo albums saw him span the genres and he also embarked on exciting collaborations with other artists. Summers’ work with fellow guitar virtuoso Victor Biglione has been especially fruitful. Once again, the pair perform duets on acoustic guitars with no other instrumental accompaniment. Yet such is their empathy, they can provide all the melodic and rhythmic structures needed to produce entirely satisfying music. They concentrated on familiar standards for their first album, but ‘Splendid Brazil’ celebrates the kind of material more familiar to Victor Biglione, one of South America’s foremost musicians - yet the two musicians complement each in a stylistic meeting of hearts and minds. ~jpc

Andy Summers' World Gone Strange was released in 1991. This album is comprised of guitar-based instrumental music. Ten tracks are contained. Altogether, I find the songwriting to be gratifying, the musicianship to be impeccable, and the sound quality to be satisfying. As for Summers' guitar work, it is proficient and pleasing. Even though I like all the compositions, my favorites are "World Gone Strange," "Bacchante," and "Song for M." "World Gone Strange" is a smooth, classy piece with pretty guitar playing from Summers; also, nice piano work is included. "Bacchante," one of my favorite instrumentals in general, is an indispensable gem–it is serene and displays a beautiful guitar line from Summers (keyboard and piano playing are also presented). The laid-back "Song for M" exhibits tasteful guitar work from Summers; this cut also furnishes keyboarding. When it comes to the CD insert, it includes two photos of Summers–one color and one black and white. ~sauerkraut
