Product Description

Part jazz, part folk, part blues, part Americana - Adie Grey's latest project, How To Find A Rainbow, is a collection of new songs written and recorded in Nashville. From the light-hearted folk-rock approach of "Like a Couple of Kids in Love" to the jazz polish of "Mr. Armstrong was Right" and from the social commentary of "The Gospel of the Hammer" to the basic low-down funk of "An Old Man's Darlin'", How To Find A Rainbow doesn't so much ignore strict musical definitions, as it looks for "those places where they start to blend together". "If there's a basic common denominator to all this, it's that it's music made by and for adults", says Adie

About the Artist

Adie Grey left her native Los Angeles in 1989 where she had worked with musical notables as diverse as Vonda Shepard, Albert King, Dian Shur and Reverend James Cleveland's Choir. Since moving to Nashville to pursue songwriting full time, she's also performed live with Jo-El Sonnier, John Hartford and Faith Hill, and has recorded with Pam Tillis and Martina McBride, among others. She and husband Dave MacKenzie started Hey Baby! Records in 1993. Adie's last album, "Grandpa's Advice", placed in the top 25 on the Americana chart and was later released in the UK on Demon Records. The title cut was featured on a compilation album from the nationally syndicated NPR radio show, Car Talk.

Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
"Brand New Old Time Music" spun frequently in my changer almost a decade ago. "How to Find a Rainbow" is the next chapter in my collection by Adie Grey. The "rainbow" consists of different styles of music that range from classic rock to country to folk to jazz. With this disc, it's better to just listen rather than knock yourself out trying to classify the sound. On "Volver, Volver" Adie sings in Spanish with the second half of the track being an English version. "I Know He Loves Me" is a sweet unadorned love song, "I like the way he listens and tries to understand." I suppose since the title bears my last name, "Mr. Armstrong Was Right" got my attention. The track is a lazy torch ballad that infuses Dennis Taylor's lovely saxophone with equal amounts lament and joy, "It may be that all my dreams will not come true; I may see all my best-laid plans fall through; I keep telling myself that it's still a wonderful world." "The Ballad of Black Charlie" is an excellent traditional ballad lament spiced with Vince Farsetta's banjo, "The County Commissioners made a fair vote, the newspapers said it was so, You can't hold back progress or civilization, Black Charilie will have to go." I apparently have a sweet spot for samba beat which Adie Grey nails on "Samba do Bologne sur Mer," "In a small cabaret at the edge of the sea, the accordions play and we dance till the song sets us free." "Forget About You" rocks to a familiar sound that leaves your toe tapping. "Kisses for Christmas" is a sweet romantic holiday track, "Give me your kisses for Christmas, they're better than a present from the store ... That's the only gift I'm wishing for." Adie Grey's "How to Find a Rainbow" is a strong disc perfect for those loving the old-timey sound. Enjoy!

I saw Adie perform for the first time (and only, so far) at Winfield, KS a few years ago, and she blew me away -- the voice, the sensibility, the music. She played several of the songs from her latest CD, so that's the one I picked up: "How to Find a Rainbow". Wow! This CD is never out of my play rotation; it just lives in my car with nine other disks. Note that my collection is in the hundreds, and you get an idea of how much I love it. My favorite track, and one of the songs I heard live that made me say "I've got to have this CD", is "The Gospel of the Hammer". I happen to be Jewish, but this song touches a universal chord -- an anthem for Habitat for Humanity. Adie quotes Louis Armstrong in the liner notes, "There's only two kinds of music, good music and bad music." This CD is good music!
