The Giant Forest


Rich Smith's debut CD, "The Giant Forest," is a self performed and produced solo piano album, inspired by the Giant Forest in Sequoia National Park, California. The recording includes 10 of Rich's best improvisational compositions which were recorded in August 1997 on his 1897 Chickering grand piano. The styles of music on the recording are a mixture of neoclassical and new age with a bit of world music and jazz influences.
