Notes & Reviews:

Personnel: Chris Botti (trumpet); Ryan Brown , Deondra Brown, Melody Brown, Gregory Brown (piano).

5 Stars: Favorites from the 5 Browns collects 16 classical pop cuts from the five ivory-tapping siblings, including public domain classics like "Flight of the Bumble Bee," "Rhapsody on a Theme of Paganini/18th Variation," "Rhapsody in Blue," "Clair de Lune," and "Scenes from West Side Story." All of the pieces are capably performed, but with only three albums under their belt, it hardly seems enough to warrant a "greatest-hits" collection. ~ James Christopher Monger

Includes simple gifts (copland) / going home (dvorak) by various composers.
