”Blue Dream is a must-have album for fans of Hawkins and of Ackerman’s other recent productions, as well as devotees of contemporary piano and ensemble recordings, for which it sets a new standard of emotional depth, production quality, and musical variety. An exemplary release, one of the best of 2008.”
Bill Binkelman - New Age Reporter

”Fiona Joy Hawkins’ BLUE DREAM began as the most ambitious project of my entire career and resulted in one of the most remarkable collaborations this genre has ever known. Blue Dream is unique and I’m as proud of it (and Fiona) as anything I’ve ever worked on in my 35 year career of Grammy Awards and gold and platinum records.”
Will Ackerman Windham County, Vermont 2008

”The mood on BLUE DREAM ranges from vibrant to sensual to haunting… Hawkins’ stellar musical vision on this project is worthy of great praise. She wowed us with her 2007 release ICE ��” Piano Slightly Chilled, and with BLUE DREAM Fiona Joy Hawkins enters the realm of masterful.”
Sandy Shore - Smoothjazzfm.com

”Blue Dream represents the very best of this music genre and follows the great tradition of artists such as George Winston. This beautifully crafted album has already been hailed as a work of pure genius”
