Badische Zeitung 1988 (D)"Ist es Jazz? Ist es Voodoo? Es spielt eigentlich keine Rolle, denn die Musik der Sharp Wood ist Weltmusik, die überall verstanden wird."  "Is it Jazz? Is it Voodoo? It’s of no importance because the music of Sharp Wood is world-music, that can be understood everywhere."
Jazz Magazine 1988 (F)"Les sonorités restent subtiles, les rythmes variés et les compositions – toutes originales – donnent alternativement le pas à l’aspect mélodique et percussif des instruments. A découvrir ‘live’ s’ils passent près de chez vous."  "The sounds remain subtle, the rhythms varied and the compositions – all originals – alternatively highlight the melodic and percussive aspects of the instruments. Check it out if they play near you."
