Sherry Finzer & Darin Mahoney are two acclaimed new age musicians in their own right, but they have now banded together for a recording as a duo, TRANSFORMATION. Finzer has six previous solo CDs and is well-known for two of them that are the start of her healing-new-age Sanctuary Series -- the first is SANCTUARY and the second is SANCTUARY II: EARTH -- both of which got great reviews, strong airplay and made it to the semi-final round of the GRAMMYS. Mahoney has a solo album, IN THE GRAIN, that caught the attention of many acoustic-guitarists including Will Ackerman, who said he liked how Mahoney plays.

In the new age genre we most often hear Native American wood flute or Japanese bamboo shakuhachi flute, and only occasionally the metal classical-orchestral flute. We hear a lot of acoustic guitar in new age music, ranging from solo albums to full ensemble recordings. Very occasionally we come across classical flute with acoustic guitar, but usually there is some percussion or a variety of other instruments added. So this album by Finzer & Mahoney is fairly unusual in that it is almost completely comprised of just the classical flute mixed with the sound of acoustic guitar (although there is a little synth in the background so faint you barely can hear it, and a viola player guests on one piece). This is about as true a duet-only album as you are likely to find.

This pair of excellent musicians combines the flute of Finzer and the acoustic-guitar of Mahoney to stunning effect on TRANSFORMATION. Take a listen.

This sounds very nice but there is no link to the music. I love listening to Adele and I am looking forward to a new album! http://www.adelesongs.org
