FLOW Billboard Feature


Billboard’s Gary Graff has posted an article called “Will Ackerman Premieres Self-Titled Song From New Group FLOW”.

It goes like this:

“Will Ackerman has never exactly gone with the flow during his length career in jazz and New Age music. But now he’s going with FLOW, a new all-star group whose self-titled debut album comes out Oct. 6 — including the track “Flow,” which is premiering exclusively on Billboard.com.

FLOW is an acronym for its band members — singer-pianist Fiona Joy, guitarist Lawrence Blatt, flugelhornist Jeff Oster and Ackerman. The Windham Hill founder was initially approached by Blatt to produce an album for the trio and was eventually recruited into the fold as writing commenced. “It was kind of a surprise to me when they said, ‘Why don’t we go from FLO to FLOW and add Will to the thing,'” Ackerman tells Billboard. Blatt says growing into a quartet was an organic process once he, Joy and Oster began working on the album.”
