Melody Diachun is an artist with a penchant for pairing atypical material with improvising musicians. SUMNER'S TALES: THE MUSIC OF STING is a bold next step in her adventure. 

Born Gordon Sumner, Sting is one of the greatest living songwriters. Melody remains faithful to the essence of the songs while the soloists roam free. Soundscapes and grooves run the gamut from lush to bombastic.
