REVIEWS:

'Bravo to the virtuosity and fine musicianship in this new collection of old piano favorites. Rich wows the listener with his extreme ranges from the dramatic to the delicate, the serious to the light hearted, all performed flawlessly in what has become a unique Rich Smith style. There is rich creativity in these interpretations, often whimsical, but always with a sensitivity to the original piece and a desire to take it that step further into the Rich Smith artistry and "Twist."'
~ Lee Gorman Smith, Vero Beach, FL

'Simply superb! "Piano Sampler with a Rich Twist" is nothing less than a showcase of just how talented Rich Smith truly is.

I can't wait for his next composition!'

Piano Sampler with a Rich Twist
Love the CD, listen to it in my car all the time, looking forward to hearing him in person. My church hired him for a one of our summer concerts.
