TIERNEY SUTTON BAND: THE STING VARIATIONS 

Ms. Sutton is a pure jazz spirit who respects a song. Even when going out on an improvisatory
limb, she never lets its essence slip away. The singer and her trio with whom she has worked for
years -Christian Jacob on piano, Kevin Axt on bass and Ray Brinker on drums - have refined the
kind of rapport that could only be achieved over time. Her deep, lingering renditions of
chestnuts like ‘Blue Skies’ and ‘Without a Song’ are especially impressive.”
— The New York Times

The Tierney Sutton Band (TSB) returns this fall after a five-year hiatus with their release, “The Sting Variations”. On this album, TSB, comprised of Tierney Sutton alongside pianist Christian Jacob, bassists Trey Henry and Kevin Axt, and drummer Ray Brinker, explores the music of British rock icon Sting, and delivers unique arrangements of both familiar and lesser-known gems.

Spanning the entirety of Sting’s career, the arrangements are filled with elegance, virtuosity and surprise, and each band member is featured to maximum effect. Some songs included on the album and to be included in performance are “Driven to Tears”, “Shadows in the Rain”, “Fields of Gold”, Every Breath You Take”, and “Message in a Bottle”.
