Bryan Ferry - Bitter-Sweet (BMG)
Graham Clark, Features Writer
The fashion at the moment seems to be artists re-recording their hits in a new format. Bryan Ferry has gone back to his past and developed a soundtrack to the Netflix period drama Babylon Berlin.

Bryan Ferry always had a voice that could be lent to jazzy arrangements.

Also by Graham Clark...
Rita Ora - Phoenix (Atlantic Records)
James Come Home To The North
Compilation - Dave Pearce - Dance Anthems (New State Music)
Route For 2019 Tour De Yorkshire Revealed
Madness, Leeds Arena
They say the tracks are in a jazzy style though I would say you could imagine the tracks being performed in a 1950's jazz club.

Ferry doesn't even sing on some of the tracks so the Roxy Music classic Dance Away is turned into an instrumental whilst Sign of the Times is virtually un recognisable in its new format.

Others work better than some, the title track Bitter-Sweet sounds re-born. Whether it is an exercise in nostalgia or to re-invent the songs it will still be an essential purchase for any Bryan Ferry fan

I give the album 3 out of 5.
