Sonic Seasonings with FLOW and Friends.
We’ll hear Fiona Joy Hawkins joined by violinist Rebecca Daniel. The two musicians released a beautiful album of free-flowing neo-classical music exploring sorrow and loss called The Lightness of Dark. They are joined by percussionist Jeff Haynes and Jeff Oster on flugelhorn. They deconstruct a set of familiar seasonal songs into refracted variations as if spun through a prism.
The trio Departure, is an as yet unrecorded trio, but with three musicians who have their own discographies and credits. They include trumpeter Jeff Oster from FLOW. He has several solo albums of his own, including a couple of Echoes CD of the Month picks. His latest is called Reach. Bassist/keyboardist Tom Eaton is the producer and utility player of FLOW. He also has several solo albums out of deep ambient music including his latest, How It Happened. Guitarist Vin Downes is also a solo artist with several solo albums out. His latest is When the Sea Lets Go. They send carols into an ambient space where Miles Davis meets Pink Floyd on the rings of Jupiter.
