About the Album

More than a decade into a creatively charged career, Aubrey Johnson’s debut release, Unraveled, marks this consummate jazz vocalist’s arrival as a composer, arranger, and bandleader with a captivating vision of her own. A musician’s musician equally at home as a side-person and as a bandleader, Aubrey’s ability to deliver dazzling horn-like melodies and improvisations as well as her poetic sensitivity and lyricism are on full display on this recording. While the style of the album is decidedly jazz, a notable variety of influences in the pop, folk, and Braziian music genres provide a quirkiness and uniqueness less often found in more traditional vocal jazz settings.
