Roxanne as Bossa

It was yesterday, on a terrace at Scheveningen. From the speakers I heard Roxanne by The Police in a languid Bossa Nova version.

Today I came across the documentary Can’t Stand Losing You: Surviving the Police which is based on the autobiography One Train Later by guitarist Andy Summers. And before I knew it I was on Vimeo watching a short video about the history of the song Roxanne. This hit was originally written by Sting as a Bossa:

Mainly thanks to Andy Summers, I started playing guitar by the age of 12. And like Andy I love shooting photos.

You can link your whole life to each other this way. (hi Andy!)
