This “Supergroup” offered their CD Release Concert at Carnegie Hall!
FLOW is a New Age music group – Will Ackerman, Fiona Joy, Lawrence Blatt and Jeff Oster.
In early 2015, Lawrence Blatt invited Fiona Joy and Jeff Oster to join him at Will Ackerman’s Imaginary Road Studios to create an album Inspired by the iconic Windham Hill ensembles.
Once recording began, it became clear that Will could be an essential part of this group as an artist as well as producer. When invited, Will was happy to join the others and FLOW was born. With Will and Tom Eaton producing, this group will surely capture the essence of today’s New Age music.
FLOW stands for Fiona Joy, Lawrence Blatt, Jeff Oster and Will Ackerman. Its a New Age group formed out of friendship and a history of working and playing together over 8 years.
“Fluid Astonishment: Two guitarist, a pianist, and a horn player walk into a studio. Now if that sounds like the beginning of a good story, it is, but the punchline is something quite exceptional. The eponymous album is FLOW. The group of four consists of Australia’s darling daughter, pianist Fiona Joy. One of the guitarists is the skillfully able Lawrence Blatt. The third is the most sought after accompanist of contemporary music, flugelhorn artist Jeff Oster. The fourth is a legendary guitarist, the one talent that has become an icon for the genre, Will Ackerman.
The music is about four friends that have known and supported each other and, more importantly, each other’s work for years. Finally one of them said, “Let’s do this” and they did. The results are extraordinary.” — Zone Music reporter
