Sherry Finzer and Joseph Akins
2020 / Heart Dance Records
Review by Kathy Parsons
“Earthbeat” is the second of three flute and piano singles being released in April 2020 that feature collaborations with flutist Sherry Finzer and pianists Lynn Tredeau, Joseph Akins, and Greg Maroney. “Earthbeat” is a haunting duet with Joseph Akins on piano and keyboard and Sherry Finzer on Native American flute. Slow, dark and almost mournful, it seems especially poignant with its Earth Day 2020 release date. String washes in the background and occasional low drum beats enhance the beauty and drama of the piece.
“Earthbeat” is available from Amazon and iTunes as well as several streaming sites.
