Notes & Reviews:

The siblings that made Juilliard history by attending the prestigious institution simultaneously 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" (An American in Paris) 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.
