The best of Andy Summers

In marking the release of the new Andy Summers documentary Can’t Stand Losing You: Surviving the Police, Guitar World has posted what they consider the guitarist’s greatest moments with his old band, featuring video evidence. They cite great material like “Synchronicity II,” “Next to You,” and “Bring on the Night,” characterized as such:

While his upstrokes in the chorus are pure reggae, the angular series of notes he unleashes in the verses recall prog-rock masters like Robert Fripp of King Crimson. While not the most unforgettable of the band’s hits, this track is really a showcase for Summers’ amazing versatility.

Listen to all the great Summers-ism over at GW.
