By Lillian

Some instruments just sound wonderful together. Such is the case of flute and acoustic guitar. That sound is what you will hear from the duo Sherry Finzer & Darin Mahoney on their first album together, TRANSFORMATION.

This music is soft, gentle, melodic, peaceful, and inspirational. It is ideal for listening enjoyment, but also relaxation, meditation, healing, inner-journeying, light-athletic-workouts (including yoga), intimate socializing and times of personal motivation.

Classically-trained Finzer really soars to the heavens with her flute playing. Mahoney -- a longtime rodeo cowboy and country-and-folk musician -- exhibits sparkling acoustic-guitar finger-picking. Previously both have been solo recording artists, but on their debut album as a duo, they make music perfect for any new age music lover.

5.0 out of 5 stars Review excerpt from Music and Media Focus August 1, 2013
Format:MP3 Music
Although they have performed and recorded with numerous other musical artists, Sherry and Darin deeply appreciate the acoustic alchemy they create together. On the opening track, a whisper of dreamy synthesizer sets the stage for Darin's guitar intro. I was immediately impressed with the rich reverberant tone of his instrument, as well as the nostalgic ambience his finger-style playing evoked. At just the right moment, Sherry's flute glides in gracefully, accentuating Darin's delicate phrasing. People who enjoy Will Ackerman's music will sense a kindred spirit in Darin's playing. The composition entitled, "Reflection," is one of Sherry's. Like the first track, there is also an air of nostalgia about it, with perhaps a trace of wistfulness. It is a lovely haunting melody that speaks to Sherry's talents as a composer and her ability to imbue a song with deep emotion. "White Sky In November" paints an impressionistic portrait in hushed tones of winter. Long sustained flute notes wander a stark guitar landscape with a mist of melancholy in the air. On a track called "Jane's Song," the duo is joined by Jane Merial Hilton on viola, adding warm woody string tones that flowed like honey.

Having greatly enjoyed Sherry's previous solo CD's, I was equally impressed with her role as a musical partner in a duo. Never overplaying, her notes and phrases are exquisitely chosen to perfectly compliment Darin's tasteful and expressive guitar work. The earthiness of the acoustic guitar combined with the airy quality of the flute blend in sweet harmony creating a musical atmosphere that lends itself to relaxation, meditation, yoga, intimate moments, etc. This is music that would work equally well for active listening or as a background soundtrack, and could appeal to listeners who enjoy ambient, new age, classical, jazz, and more. I'm sure that Transformation, by Sherry Finzer and Darin Mahoney, is an album I'll listen to for years to come.

5.0 out of 5 stars Music for the heart and soul February 18, 2014
Format:MP3 Music
The album Transformation by Sherry Finzer and Darin Mahoney is about remembering and learning from past experiences. It is filled with beautiful songs that speak both to the heart and soul. I was not surprised when this album recently won the One World Music Best Album of 2013 Award.

I very much like the way the guitar is recorded. The sound of the strings is wonderful and very precise. The flute is mostly in the background, where it backs up the guitar and adds vibrant colors.

Transformation is one of those albums that make you feel both stronger and wiser. It is great both as background music and for active listening. Highly recommended!

5.0 out of 5 stars A beautiful release from beginning to end January 27, 2014
Format:Audio CD
This album has made a change for me, a pleasant change I may add, to review a guitar and flute based album is rare and even more so to review an album that was not only very deep and very emotional, but also full of light. This new album by Sherry Finzer and Darin Mahoney was certainly an extremely pleasant musical experience to have.
The opening composition Algar St, had a real mood felt start to it, as a guitarist myself I could literally feel the emotional pull of the chords and notes played, Finzer’s flute created a touching back drop to a very beautiful start to this new album.
However on track two, which I have to admit was one of my favourites, make a note I say ONE of my favourites, Finzer’s beautiful flute takes centre stage and with some gentle playing by Mahoney, they create a really powerful piece that is filled with the emotions of Confusion
Could it be confusion of love or confusion in life perhaps? One cannot be sure, but this track really hits all the buttons and I found a huge lump in my throat whilst writing this part of the review and it would not end there. Confusion is also the longest track on the album at over seven minutes plus and within this piece one could almost feel an art like expression of sadness, beautifully played, but very haunting.
Next is one of those pieces of music that swims around in your head for days, you know exactly what I mean constant reader, that tune you can’t get out of your mind wherever you are and you find yourself whistling or humming the melody for endless days and nights, even when you sleep, it haunts your dreams with its gentle melody.

5.0 out of 5 stars The RajMan Review December 8, 2013
Format:Audio CD
The entrancing flute playing of Sherry Finzer and the intricate guitar handiwork of Darin Mahoney come together on this intriguing duo album.

Finzer plays Pearl and Guo flutes and Mahoney plays a custom acoustic guitar that he handmade himself (he's also a professionally trained luthier). Mahoney's guitar starts off many of the tunes, with Finzer's flutes weaving their way in and through them. The duo also receive some musical support from Jane Hilton on viola, guesting on a song written and named for her.

As the title suggests, the music is transformational in that it helps listeners escape from the hectic pace of everyday life and find peace and solace in the serenity of the woodwinds' and strings' gentle vibrations. But don't be lulled by the quietude of Finzer and Mahoney's humble offering - there's quite a bit of musicality on display in their compositions and performances.

This is a nice change of pace for those seeking one.
