ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
The songs on blue21a were written in Ocean Isle Beach, NC at “The Stick” and on a screen porch in Dublin, NH. Three pairs of songs (denoted **, *+, and ++) are paired variations with arrangements inspired by the work of Kandinsky. In particular the two Kandinsky works seen on the front and back of this CD “Improvisation 21A” (1911) and “Simple Pleasures” (1914) which Gary observed together in NYC at the Guggenheim in 2010. The pairs of songs share the same chord patterns, central themes, and fiddle/mandolin hooks just as the two pictures do. In a very real sense, Kandinsky inspired and shaped much of the music you hear on this CD. For this, we are grateful.

Very enjoyable ... yet off the beaten path!
I'm not all that sure how to categorize Where's Aubrey's blend of acoustic guitar, fiddle, mandolin, and vocals ... bluegrass? ... jazz? ... folk? ... I guess, perhaps, a very eclectic blend of all three. If you're looking for something enjoyable, yet off the beaten path - buy this!

love it
I really like this CD. I got it 3 weeks ago and put it on whenever I'm grading or coding. I particularly like the fiddle. The composition of the instruments is rich... and several of the tracks are paired with similar rifts which I like.

My favorite tracks are "We Will Float Away", "Bring It On" and "Now Its Alright" (first 3 tracks on the CD!). I also like "Brown Like Your Cinnamon" and "Your Color of Blue" a lot.

There are a few songs which are a bit "talkie" instead of singing (like "Break It Apart")... which isn't quite my thing. They tend to interrupt the groove I get into when listening to music. Other than that, I think this is a great indy-band and look forward to more from them. I definitely want to catch them live if they ever come to the Midwest.

Double Mosaic
Conventional wisdom suggests that two is better than one. This addage is not always true in music but it certainly proves out in this album, Blue21a. The blending of two artists into one sound, two song fabrics into one and two genres into a rich and complex sound is what makes this album unique. My favorites include: Now It's Alright, Seven Hiurs Till Dawn, and your Color of Blue.

If you like music that is easy to listen to with a diversity of styles you'll appreciate this album.

this cd is alive
Where's Aubrey continues to thrill us with this cd. Gary and Rhine seem joined at the hip as they continue to grow and evolve in their songwriting, musicality, soul, and heart in the music they create. I listen to the cd over and over and always hear something new, poignant, surprising, and wonderful. The way Gary plays his violin, weaving it like a thread of golden light is always exciting and sublime, and Rhine's writing creates magic. Buy this cd, you will love it too.

What a joy!!!
What incredible talent!!!!! When I hear Rhine and Gary play it feels as though they become as one flawless instrument. The diversity of both the incredible songs and the music make this album an extraordinary listening experience. I found Where's Aubrey a delight years ago - and they just get better and better. Please keep playing, and thank you both!!!!!!

Magical
blue21A from Where's Aubrey is a thoroughly enjoyable CD that takes the listener on a journey through green hills and blue skies where romance can go from shades of skin warming yellow to the grays of rain. Masterful fiddle playing and beautiful mandolin melodies create a haunting, lilting sound.

I couldn't stop listening to "We Will Float Away," "Brown Like Your Cinnamon" and "Now It's Alright." Reminiscent of Indy bluegrass with a strong sense of troubadour. Sweet emotions with whimsical complexity and richness that mirror the works of Kandinsky from which the title was drawn.

It will warm your heart and make you smile. Guaranteed.
