The Bird And The Bee
By Lynne Bronstein

The Bird And The Bee (CD Blue Note)

This isn’t smooth jazz, it’s soft and velvety with carefully concealed sharp edges. It’s not clear who’s The Bird and who’s The Bee but this is the work of singer/songwriter Inara George and musician Greg Kurstin. It’s a mysterious, moody, quietly active song cycle with jazz and bossa nova rhythms; the instrumentation is mostly electronic and never overwhelms the multi-tracked vocals of George, which are instruments themselves. The best example of this is on the title song, in which the overdubbed chorus is almost a second character in the song, like the Greek Choruses of old. Offsetting the enjoyable harmonies are the lyrics, which sometimes veer toward punk assertion as on “F-cking Boyfriend” (what a wish-fulfillment of a song for women!) and the funny “I Hate Camera.” On “My Fair Lady,” George rewrites the tale of Liza Doolittle, turning that character’s yearning for a room of her own into an modern urban anthem. In some ways this self-titled release has the feel of an updated, female-centric Pet Sounds a high compliment to be sure, but possibly a well-deserved comparison.
