Product Description

The siblings that mane Juilliard history by attending the prestigious institution simultaneously, The 5 Browns; Desirae, Deondra, Gregory, Melody, and Ryan have returned with their most commercial album to date. On Browns In Blue, the many varied and emotional musical shades of the color are on display. From Gershwin's Jazzy Home Blues and Embraceable You, to the classical mood of a Chopin Nocturne and Debussy's Clair de lune, The 5 Browns show why they remain classical music's irresistible new champions.

5.0 out of 5 stars excellent cd Nov. 21 2007
By lastremnant - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This is a great introduction to the 5 Browns and I think it's their best album to date. There is a wide variety of composers. I definitely recommend it to any fan of classical music.

3.0 out of 5 stars 3rd album not as good as 1st two Dec 11 2007
By S. Penrod - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
The 5 Browns are extremely talented to say the least, and they are personable as well. I met them in person in Houston several years ago, so I'm a huge fan. I even have tickets to their concert next January. Nonetheless, I did not think the pieces on their 3rd album were as varied and interesting as the 1st two. So if you're a big fan, you'll want to buy it. If you don't have any of their albums, buy the 1st and 2nd.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Departure from Previous CDs... Dec 8 2007
By G. Hudgins - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Given its departure from previous releases...it took the second time to really sink in, and it is excellent. It's the kind of compilation you want to listen to from beginning to end, uninterrupted. Presumably, the Five Browns are experimenting with their success, so they present themselves differently, but at their high level, certainly. The last track is fun, expertly mixed and a great way to cap off a rewarding listening adventure.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great feeling! Jan. 6 2008
By A. Williams - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
The music is fantastic. And it may be that I've seen them perform live at Strathmore, but I can picture the meticulous Five Browns playing with great feeling and swaying and giving it everything they have.
