Album Review
Be Sharp
Reviewed 2013-10-13 
Composer / leader Marc Bernstein plays bass clarinet, soprano & alto sax. His group comprises piano, bass, drums. Danish vocalist Sinne Eeg has a rich & varied alto voice.

No FCC issues.

1 Mid-tempo. Intriguing music: Bernstein’s bass clarinet & Eeg’s bassoon-like tone work nicely together. Preposterous lyrics ruin it. (6:43)
2 * Mid-fast with a lot of drive & passion. Bernstein plays in a high register with a bit of squawk. Eeg sings with a bit of Flora Purim-like exoticness. (7:28)
3 Very slow, late-night ballad. Bass clarinet & piano open; vocal is deep & warm; strong bass & piano bridge. (6:42)
4 * Slow, bluesy crawl. Eeg shines with a vampy chanteuse style. Old-time sound including some scat singing. Strong rhythm section. (7:09)
5 Very very slow. Old Michel Legrand pop song. Truly awful. (6:26)
6 ** Mid-tempo. Improv feel; modal & multi-textured. Strong sax, piano; no vocal. (7:48)
7 * Very slow. Avant-garde strangeness, bird sounds, wordless singing. Tense, eerie. (8:01)
8 Mid-tempo. Boppy vocal accompanied by piano & bass. (1:36)
9 Slightly slower, bluesier reprise of track #2. (6:33)
