BLUE STORIES - SECULAR by MINDY JOSTYN

Blue Stories - Secular
Mindy Jostyn

"'Blue Stories' is an album of songs about people and their plights," says Mindy. "But I've tried to treat these people compassionately. I'd prefer that listening to the CD not be an experience in darkness - rather, one in a semi-pale shade of blue. Twilight blue, say, with a smattering of stars."

"Blue Stories" introduces the listener to a cast of colorful characters from all walks of life. Among them: a guy who's searching for an "empathetic woman"; a "loner" who's always on the outside looking in; a First Lady who was "the last to know" that her husband was cheating on her; a former high-roller who finds himself down and out on "Rock City Road"; and two New Yorkers chasing that elusive big break in the "city of blue stories."

As is the case with her previous CD's, "Blue Stories" showcases Mindy's soulful voice, distinctive melodies, and insightful and witty lyrics. Plus it features her on a host of different instruments including guitar, violin, mandolin, harmonica, accordion, piano, synth, and recorder. The new CD also incorporates a wide range of musical styles from folk to blues to Celtic to rock to jazz.

Mindy's co-lyricist on "Blue Stories" is Jacob Brackman whose prior musical collaborators include James Taylor, Dr. John, Steve Winwood, Jerry Ragavoy, and Carly Simon. In fact, one of the cuts on the CD is a haunting version of Brackman and Simon's hit "That's the Way I've Always Heard it Should Be."

"Blue Stories" was recorded on two very different islands - Martha's Vineyard and Manhattan. Joining Mindy on the CD are some of the finest singers and instrumentalists from both islands, including Carly Simon who lends her voice and instrumental talents to "Don't Turn Away" and "East of Eden."
