Louis Colaiannia/Finzer Mahoney Duo
Enjoy an afternoon filled with music influenced by the sounds of Windham Hill. Both pianist Louis Colaiannia and guitarist Darin Mahoney have worked with the founder of Windham Hill records, Will Ackerman, at Imaginary Roads studios in VT.
Boulder area resident, Louis Colaiannia (piano), brings his beautiful artistry and talents to the Phoenix area, where he will perform music from his latest release, Closer, which was recorded at Imaginary Road Studios with Grammy Award winner and founder of Windham Hill Records, Will Ackerman. Closer reached #1 on the One World Music Top 100, #3 on Zone Music Reporter and was nominated for ZMR and EPR Music Awards. "That Louis Colaiannia is a brilliant pianist is an obvious statement; akin to "the sun is warm" in terms of room for debate. As a composer he has distinguished himself further in his numerous releases over the years." -Will Ackerman. Louis performed at the EPR awards show at Carnegie Hall in October 2015 and also in Spain and Italy in late 2015, and will tour Scandinavia in May 2016.
Sherry Finzer (flute) and Darin Mahoney (guitar) have enjoyed much success with their first duo album, Transformation, which won Album of the Year 2013 from One World Music in the UK and placed at #4 on the Zone Music Report chart. Sherry's album, Sanctuary III: Beyond the Dream was also nominated for Best Album 2014 by ZMR, and was selected as CD of the Month on the long running NPR syndicated radio show Echoes in Jan 2015. The duo has played around the valley and throughout the US for several years and is planning a tour in the UK for 2017. Their second album is scheduled for a spring 2016 release. Darin's experience of surviving Stage IV cancer helps the duo create music to reach others in need of healing both emotionally and physically. Sherry's label, Heart Dance Records, has been signing on new artists, including former Windham Hill artist Scott Cossu, who refers to the label as having" the vitality and innocence of the early 1980's Windham Hill Records."
