Summers was actually the first one to release non-Police material – 1982’s I Advanced Mask – his first collaborative album with Robert Fripp, the guitarist of the Progressive Rock band King Crimson, predating Sting’s debut solo album of 1985. In the years that ensued, Summers forayed in various palettes of sounds and genres, exploring mostly the realms of instrumental music, usually delving into the Avant-Garde, Ambient, Jazz Fusion, and New Age corners of it.
